Lyme Disease Treatment

I am raising money for my family’s Lyme Disease challenge. I, Shawnee Banks, was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in 2018. I have had Undiagnosed Lyme Disease for years and have to see an out of network Lyme specialist and undergo expensive treatment not covered by insurance for healing. Also, during that time, I had a beautiful baby boy with some pregnancy complications due to Lyme. Since, my 6mo son has been ill and hospitalized due to various illnesses that were life threatening. Since, we found out my son also has Lyme Disease that I passed to him in the womb. We now need the money to get him into my Lyme specialist and for his treatment. This doctor and treatment is not covered by insurance. This has hit our family finances hard! Please help our family in healing especially for my son so he can live a life not defined by this disease!
