helping fight chronic Lyme disease

Our daughter was misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia (Dec of 2017) and we now know she is fighting Chronic Lyme, bartonella and possibly other co-infections. She has been struggling with severe chronic pain, disability, & has been bedridden for over a year. She has debilitating symptoms that only kept getting worse.  We have begun treatments for Lyme and she has slowly begun to make some improvements in her ability to function. However, fighting chronic Lyme is expensive and a lenghtly process to heal from. 
    We are trying to raise money for Lyme treatments and to be able to afford to see a Lyme literate Dr for further guidance on what treatments she needs to heal (Unfortunately most refuse to take insurance payments so all the expense is out of pocket and a single visit can range from $350-$750 & that doesn't cover the cost of labs or treatment expenses.) Many people with Lyme also need to take many supplements not only to help fight off the bacteria, but also to help the body detox the toxins from the body as Lyme bacteria are killed. 
    I have been her caregiver for over a year and watched her struggle to do basic things everyone usually takes for granted. I've seen her struggle to walk, have seizures, not be able to have control of her legs, all while dealing with unusual symptoms like severe spinal & head vibrations, only to still be told it's just your fibro & refused further neurological evaluations. The medical system has failed her, but she fights every day to regain her abilities and hopes to one day be able to be the mom she was before. Please help her be able to keep fighting this debiltating disease by giving what you can. Your support is so very much needed and greatly appreciated. Thank you! Love, Ellen and Pat Hines
