Help Birgitte get her life back.

In October of 2013 my beautiful wife Birgitte got diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease. This gave truth to her severe, destructive symptoms, and also changed the direction of our life. 

Birgitte's symptoms started when she was 15 years old. 8 years later they have taken a deeper toll and continue to worsen every year. She is constantly attacked daily with severe fatigue, brain fog, migranes, body aches, dizzyness, facial pain, insomnia, anxiety, and depression. She has the inablity to drive, socialize, and someday's unable to get out of bed.

Through this journey, we have personally have visited numerous Doctor's both in the USA and abroad. Many doctors have told us they cant help. Even when she was younger doctors would tell her nothing was wrong, and it was "all in your head." After searching nationwide for the hope of a Lyme free life, we have finally found a place. 

Our Goal is to go to Sponaugle Wellness Institute in Tampa, Florida. We have already spoken with the Clinic and they can help. Many go there for Lyme and leave completely healed. 

Unlike other disease's, there is a very small percentage of clinics that are covered by medical insurance for Lyme. In most of those clinics the battle against Lyme takes years. At Sponaugle, her treatment may only be a couple months. The treatment is expensive, but it will cure her. After her treatment is over, she will be completely Lyme free, and functioning as a normal person.  

Because she is getting worse, we have decided to make a radical change in our life. I will be leaving my job here in Southern California to pursue healing for her at the clinic. This puts an immense financial burden over us, but we believe this is the way to her healing. This is why we are fundraising because we don't have the financial means to get her well. 

When you donate, you are contributing to the cost:
17 week full time intensive treatment
All bloodwork, labs, and brain scans
Prescribed Full Time Nurse
Cost of living
Cost of traveling to Florida
Cost of traveling to the clinic
