Help for Lyme Disease Treatment




Asking for help is difficult. We are at the point where we need assistance.  Our 23 year old son has Lyme disease, and two of it’s co-infections, Babesia and Bartonella and has for over 10 years now. He unfortunately had been misdiagnosed until recently. He doesn’t remember  being bitten nor did he have the tell-tale “bullet mark.”  He has had symptoms over the years but they were considered to be caused by other issues.  He is now at the point where he can no longer work because he is suffering classic Lyme symptoms such as anxiety, brain fog, extreme joint pain, etc. He began seeing a naturopath doctor, who was highly recommended, here in Ottawa who deals with Lyme patients with great success. However, he did not respond to the treatments. Our only alternative now will be to travel to Plattsburgh, New York for treatment which will cost several thousand dollars.   We are lucky enough to get him an appointment on May 7th.  Although it is very expensive, we have no choice but to pursue this treatment. Our son needs to have his life back. None of our expenses have been covered by healthcare in Ontario.   Any monies we receive will be used to pay for his treatments in the USA.  We thank anyone who can give anything to help.
