This has been a challenge because the cost of Lyme is very expensive. Insurance does not cover doctor’s visits, medication, IV treatments, or lab tests. There is also a special diet that is required. Any foods that cause inflammation have to be eliminated. I eat a strict diet that has no gluten, dairy, refined sugar, soy, or corn. Most foods need to be organic and can be costly at times.
The more I have researched Lyme the more I have learned that it can be transferred to your partner and to your children while in utero. My husband, daughter, and youngest son Jameson were showing signs of fatigue, muscle pain, headaches, abdominal pain, and memory loss. We had my husband and children tested for Lyme. This is a horrible debilitating disease and I wouldn’t wish this horrific pain on anyone. Unfortunately my husband and 2 children were not so lucky. All 3 of them tested positive for Lyme. It completely breaks my heart to know that they have been suffering and are now in a battle to save their lives. The Lyme test alone costs $256. We plan on testing my oldest son, Tristin as soon as we can afford it. It is with a humble heart that I ask for your help in the treatment for my family. My treatment alone costs $3,000/mo. It takes an average of 2 years for treatment. I ask that you please open your heart and help donate so that we can fight this disease and have our life back. Please be a warrior with us, fight Lyme disease, and help save my family.
