Lyme Disease Be Gone!

Greetings! My name is Meredith and I am raising funds for Feral, my great friend, who is an artist, a poet, a ceramicist, a writer, a walker of dogs and all around beautiful person.
Thirty or so years ago she quit her job at a bank and hiked the Appalachian Trail in search of something different than over drafts; she travelled to the Philippines during the ouster of Marcos and was a witness to the devastating poverty in Manilla; she lived in the woods on site at the women's peace encampment in Aiken, SC protesting the production of nuclear weapons at the Savannah River Plant.
Somewhere along the way, a tick bit her. Thing is, for these past few decades Feral had no idea, even as strange and debilitating symptoms became a part of her everyday life. Recently, through an arduous bureaucratic trek through the health system, she received a confirmed diagnosis of Lyme disease.
For years and years, this disease has been leaving its mark on Feral's health, on her ability to make art, on her life in total. Now, Feral can do something about it. She needs funds to help her initiate a protocol that will halt and heal the progress of this disease. A year's worth of IV antibiotics, a regimen of herbs, an ability to live in an area far from the antagonisms of city life -- these are the steps Feral is considering in order to restore her health.
Please help me help Feral. She has a lot more poems to write, mosaics to devise, and dogs to walk! What ever you can contribute to help her on her way will aid her mightily on this spinning globe of ours.
