￼￼￼Our brother Rich has been suffering bitterly from Lyme Disease and co-infections for over 3 years. A series of parasites, viruses, bacteria and infections better known as Tick Borne Diseases. All of which made his life like living in a never ending torture chamber of relentlessly painful symptoms. His symptoms began in late 2014. During those 3 years he has experienced an onslaught of terrible symptoms including: excruciating migraines, partial paralysis, fatigue, debilitating body pains (arthritis in every joint), muscle spasms, cognitive issues, various digestive issues, kidney pain, heightened food allergies and intolerances to all but a few foods, jaw/teeth pain, difficulty breathing, night sweats, heart palpitations, chest pain, rib soreness, mood swings, extreme irritability, depression, anxiety, restless to no sleep at all every night, vision problems, hearing problems, loss of memory and many many neurological problems without knowing the cause. He received various misdiagnoses including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and suggestions that he may have Lupus, MS, or that the entire experience was “in his head” and that psychological treatment alone was needed.
In the cover photo above you can see Rich as a happy, fun-loving guy after one of his concerts where he was the lead singer in a band.
The photo below shows his thinning, yellowing face when he was at the worst of his lyme disease. He was a well built, 5'11'' man weighing 185lbs and deteriated to 120lbs in less than a year.
￼Over the last three years he has lost pretty much everything, his business, his band, and most of his friends, his house and has had to sell his possessions to help cover medical expenses. Sadly a common story when it comes to people with chronic lyme aka tick borne diseases.
He was officially diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease in 2015. After many unsuccessful attempts to treat this shockingly elusive disease with many natural protocols. He began an antibiotic treatment plan in February of 2017, to attack the Lyme and other co-infections in his body. The medications, combined with living in Florida for the benefits of high level vitamin D for 6 months made it possible for him to function on a very low level. His kidneys, liver, spleen and digestive organs are starting to show significant damage from the amount of antibiotics that he has taken for the last year. He also continues to experience numerous debilitating symptoms and needs to rebuild his immune system and organs in order to feel better. His body has been an unrelenting, internal torture chamber and battle-ground of conflicting chemicals for three years, and desperately requires an influx of healthy cells, nutrition, and overall vitality. Through the recommendation of his Lyme specialist, and testimonials from fellow Lyme patients, Rich has found a treatment that he and his family believe can help him get better.
The Stemaid Lyme Disease Protocol includes:
•enzymes to help break the borrelial cysts and biofilms
•a specific diet to inhibit the quorum-sensing activity of the bacteria
•natural anti-pathogenic treatments which may include ozone therapy and frequency treatments
•chelation therapy following the ACAM protocol (American College of Alternative Medicine)
•20 million Embryonic Stem Cell treatment 3 times per week for 2 weeks.
Benefits of the Embryonic Stem Cell treatment for Lyme disease patients:
The injection of ESC has the immediate effect of strengthening the immune system. The first benefit from the stem cell treatment is the increased capacity of the body to defend itself from the pathogen invasion.
The second level of benefit is usually observed after a minimum of 3 injections when the different organs that have been damaged by the disease start to show signs of repair. ESC are especially efficient at reversing brain neurological problems. Patients on anti-depressants were able to cease taking them when entering the 4th week after the treatment. Some showed improvements a little later but most patients show a remarkable improvement in all neurological related symptoms.
Major improvement is also observed in the joint inflammation within 4 weeks of the treatment.
Check out a very informative video done by a couple of fellow lymies. Kerry Dee and Kelly Kitchens. Kerry asks all the questions someone might have about this treatment and Kelly’s answers are as direct as anyone dealing with this illness would want.

Your Help Is Requested
This campaign provides the opportunity to help Rich accomplish a definite goal: Fly to San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico and receive the treatment at the Stemaid facility there as soon as possible. The cost of his treatment alone is estimated at $20k. With additional costs for airfare, accommodations, food, and after-care, our goal is to raise $25k+ for Rich to cover all expenses.
The CDC in the United States doesn’t even recognize Chronic Lyme Disease as a legitimate disease eligible for insurance coverage. Therefore, Rich and our family have been paying out-of-pocket for the past 3 years to travel to be seen by out of town specialists and to cover additional prescription and treatment costs.
We are asking our friends, family and anyone who has ever had their life touched by Lyme disease or any other autoimmune disease to donate to this special fund so that our brother can get back to living the life he was intended to live.
Please donate what you feel in your heart to this GoFundMe campaign and help us send Rich to Mexico for treatment as soon as possible! Comment on this page, share it on Facebook, Twitter or any other social media you prefer and email it to your friends and family. Every contribution, no matter how large or small, is meaningful and deeply appreciated.
