It's about time we beat Joel’s Lyme

Joel contracted Lyme Disease in 2014

-Since 2014, Joel's symptoms include:

* Persistent headaches
* Average pain level 7/10 (often higher)
* Joint pain
* Cloudy thinking
* Fatigue coupled with insomnia
* Poor circulation

-Multiple treatment approaches have failed to alleviate these symptoms.

-The Envita Clinic's treatment plan for Joel's Lyme is the only approach that will address the root cause of Joel's excruciating pain.

-Funds will go toward
*Medical Treatment at premier Lyme Treatment Facility (Envita Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona)
*Travel
*Room and board for family and convalescence (2-4 months)

-Funds are needed immediately to begin Joel's final hope for successful treatment.

* All expenses are required up front.
* Insurance is unlikely to pay for this innovative approach to Joel's specific needs/symtoms

-Prior to contracting Lyme Disease, Joel...
* was a 4.0 student with perfect attendance
* was competing for top academic honors in his class
* was a member of The National Honor Society
* had hopes of getting accepted to The Massachussetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
* was heavily involved in extra-curricular activites and community (Youth Group/Band/Speech & Debate)

-Joel's battle with Lyme Disease has rendered him a prisoner in his own room for the last three years
* He has been unable to attend school, church, or any other activities outside of home
* Any activity that requires concentration is currently difficult/impossible for Joel
* Joel's social life has been extremely limited: his only interaction revolves around family
