Help our friend Muc get treatment for Lyme Disease

Please help our dear friend Muc travel from Australia to Europe for treatment of Lyme Disease. He has been diagnosed by a specialized lab in California as having Lyme but the doctors in his native Australia have diagnosed him as having ALS (also known as MND or Lou Gehrig's disease). 

In his current position in Australia his medical professionals are only willing to accept his ALS diagnosis. But after his positive test for Lyme in the USA, he searched and has found a clinic in Europe that is both affordable for non-Europeans and has accepted him as a candidate for treatment of Lyme Disease.

As a degenerative disease, ALS leaves Muc with little life choice... Obviously we are all hoping that Lyme Disease is the correct diagnosis and that he will have multiple treatment options and a long life ahead of him. His muscles have weakened due to muscle wastage and he has just regained his ability to walk through perseverance. It has left him unable to do what he loves most, playing with his step siblings and creating beautiful imagery.

Muc is loved by all who meet him and just all around one of the nicest people you could imagine. He has always lived a very sportive and zen life; surfing, hiking and working as an international photographer. Please help him get back on his feet for him, his friends and his loving family.

All donations received will be used to pay for his treatment in Europe and his expenses to get to the clinic.

Thank you.
