Our daughter Julia has been chronically ill with Lyme Disease since she was 12 (she is 20 now). She suffers from tremors/seizures and chronic pain over her entire body. She can not drive or work. She hasn't been able to attend regular school since 2010. She is just now finishing up her last high school classes online where she has kept a high GPA despite her many medical challenges.
We are trying to get her to an appointment at a clinic in Germany that specializes in disease treatment for her illness that she can not get in the USA. The treatment and trip are not covered by insurance. It is all out of pocket expense.
We are in contact with other families who have children and adults who have benefited greatly from the treatment.
Lyme disease has robbed Julia of her teenage years and it has cost our family countless thousands of dollars in the many years of treatment.
We want Julia to have a real life where she can have independence and normalcy. She very much wants to start college and be a normal young adult without pain, without seizures. We believe this trip can help get her there. Please help us make that wish come true.
