Help Joe Walk and Eat Again!!

My Uncle Joe Muhler was enjoying a simple life -- living and working near the beach in New Jersey -- when, in February 2018, he began suffering from Lyme Disease. Within 6 months he lost his short term memory, his ability to eat, half of his body weight, the ability to walk, and, above all, his hope. In response to near-fatal complications from Lyme Disease, emergency medical teams at the ICU have now saved his life twice. He is currently wheel-chair bound, unable to taste food, and his memory is damaged, but slowly returning.  We are frustrated and limited because his insurance does not cover the testing, medications, or doctor visits for Lyme disease specialists, so I am raising funds to cover these costs. Uncle Joe just wants to be able to walk and eat, and he is determined to work and become independent again. Any and all  donations would be appreciated.
