Help Clare treat her Lyme's Disease

Dear Friends
Anyone who knows our Clare adores her.
Sadly, she contracted Lyme's Disease 6 years ago, beginning a nightmare which, until recently, seemed unresolvable. At first, Clare just felt tired and thought she was a wee bit run down, but over a few weeks the symptoms got worse; sweats, chills, memory loss, blurred vision, tinnitus , stabbing pains, insomnia, emotional numbness, terrible depression and anxiety to name just a few. These are all tell-tale signs of Lyme's Disease, however there has not yet been a blood test developed which can definitively detect Lyme's Disease, so when Clare went to see a doctor about it, she was told there was nothing wrong, and as a result she won't be able to receive treatment on the NHS. Clare says the worst of all the impacts Lyme's Disease has had on her life is the cognitive problems. It can cause her to forget names, stories, words, where she lives or how to drive a car. These effects and symptoms have led to Clare going through hell for the past 6 years, yet since the NHS test is often unable to (and in Clare's case was unable to) detect Lyme's, Clare requires costly private treatment to try and cure her.  For the last 7 months she has seemed treatment with a Lyme's specialist called Professor B Puri, who has diagnosed her with Bartonella and Babes. The 8 week course of antibiotics prescribed will cost £3,000 and it is incredibly unlikely that this will cure her on the first go. As a result, we are trying to raise £6,000 to fund two 8 week course of antibiotics to try and help Clare get her life back from this horrible disease. Thank you for reading this, please share and help if you can.
Lots of Love 
Jude and Alex
