Cure Jericho's Chronic Lyme Disease

Raised by 27 people in 29 months
I am currently in the process of healing lyme disease. I have had great success recently and feel I have got my life back to large degrees. There is only up from here.

I have been homeless for the past year, not able to work due to the fragile condition that can put me into a very dire state of collapse at any given time, and I have been struggling immensely in need of constant help. But very little avenues to pursue, and it is causing strains on my relationships with my friends or people that know me.

I haven't had all the tools I fully need to keep my health in the most optimal capacity that I know how to get to, and allow my body to do the healing.
I have lost about 40+ lbs, from not having enough food and having to eat minimally. And I have only just had enough money to rarely buy the basic vitamins that I need, yet am still needing quite a bit more in the comprehensive protocol that has been curing me.

I have been sick my entire life, infected since birth. It has progressively gotten worse over time, and I am nearing the end of this very long and exhausting process. I'm almost there... People most days look at me and don't even have a clue that I was ever as sick as I was in the past, and some people even have a hard time understanding that I'm infected and sick still. Because I look so bright most days after a lot of hard work and taking care of myself full time.

I have spent so much money treating this, and am in extensive debt to family, friends, doctors, etc.
I still have more expenses on top of this to keep up with, to make sure I keep my health stable for the next period, while I keep on curing this.
Everything I own has been sold, and that has only ever just covered the costs for medical expenses and to stay alive.
No person should ever have to spend every single dime they have, to achieve health which is what I have done. There is no support from the government on this, and even if there was. It's so minuscule compared to what is truly needed.
I have only come this far, because of the extensive debt that my friends, family and doctors have so graciously allowed me leniency with, but there are so many hardships and stresses with the financial aspect of treating this... It's almost too overwhelming, and not only just from the debt alone. But from the continued costs to be able to keep up with curing the lyme circumstances which require so many different dynamics; a lot of which cost money.


I have had to support myself this entire time, with little to no help from others until recently in the past year when i started essentially begging / finding the courage to ask for help. And it hasn't been easy... A lot of people have been there for me at times, taking a bit of weight off my shoulders. More often then not though, i get judgement and animosity from people, for being sick and in need or who think I'm pathetic and weak for asking for support in this... It truly does happen, and it almost boggles my mind how we treat other people with sickness who are so deserving of a helping hand and support from community. Those that are sick and suffering are the ones most deserving of our love and respect.
For all those who have been there for me in my darkness. I owe you the world... Thank you.

I feel like I can't carry this weight alone any longer, and I'm at a point where I can't keep going if there is no community to help me through this.

I need your help with contributions, or love and sharing this to others that might be able to help.

I have found my answers, things that work for me. It is simply a very long and drawn out process of healing the body and taking care of myself for many years.

Thanks to all my friends, family, strangers and my doctor. I have made leaps and bounds in my progress, but all my resources are exhausted to the point where I am homeless, still struggling, and just barely keeping up with the bare basics to keep me from going into remission with my progress or collapsing back to a state of illness that is disabling.

With your help, i can cure this. I can recover my body and rebuild from the 20+ years of extensive damage that has happened.
I can have my life back. I can go on to help others and help this world heal.
Thank you for believing in me. As I believe in myself.

I was born with chronic Lyme Disease - I have been disabled and devastatingly sick since I was a child, and am now recovering from late stage chronic lyme disease. Since I was a teenger, I have been on my deathbed with most days until this past year, as I found out how to cure this disease.
I have almost cured this;
But am homeless, cannot afford medical costs and needing your help.

I need help affording lyme disease treatment;
Vitamins ($5-600 a month)
IV vitamin Therapy ($1000-1500+ a month)
High Quality Organic Food and Dietary Supplements
($600+ a month)
Herbal treatments ($250+ a month)

After the past year of being homeless with this life threatening illness called lyme disease which is a bacterial infection that causes symptoms of; ms, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Auto Immune Disorders, chronic fatigue, autoimmune disorder, adrenal fatigue symptoms, fibromyalgia pain, I am still homeless and struggling to keep up with my health on a daily basis and all the treatments which I need for my recovery. For many years, and more so recently in the past year due to the instability of my living situation; I have been going into organ failure due to complications from the lyme disease.
I feel now most days that I am almost cured to a large degree, but without continued treatment and taking care of myself, I will go back into collapse, as has been happening periodically multiple times a month when I can't acquire the things I need. I can't do this while being homeless any longer.

All in all, I have found empowerment through this journey, I have found love and appreciation for all of life's challenges. But to be real, this isn't the way someone facing an illness they never chose to have should have to life their life. Day by day, thinking how I'm going to survive to the next day.

I know I can cure this, but I can't do this without help.
Thank you to everyone who has already supported me, been there for me along the way and keep giving me hope. You mean the world to me.
Thank you.

Hello, I am currently in the last stages of curing my chronic lyme disease. It has ravaged my body and caused symptoms of; ALS, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Auto Immune Disorders, Lupus, Cancer, Skitsophrenia,/ Bi-Polar, Autism, Spinal Dystrophy, and many other medical conditions that were essentially caused by the infections.

I have no ability to generate an income at the moment, due to my inability to work a conventional job, because of how it will most likely set my body into a state of collapse.

I am currently needing help paying for my medical expenses, and here is what your contributions will be helping me afford;

Amino Acid IV Therapy - $200 per visit ($2000) per month, needing these multiple times a week to allow my body to have the pure chemical constitutions and tools to be able to repair the damage that is constantly undertaken.

High Quality Vitamins / Supplements - Approx $600+ a month.

Essential herbal treatments; including chinese medicine and western medicine herbalism. - $500 a month.

Practioner Costs - $3-600 a month

High Quality Organic food subsidy. (Already paying the large extent myself, and this is all I can afford. Having to spend any money that would otherwise go to rent; on this.)

There are many more costs on top of this to keep myself stable and thriving in my fight against chronic lyme.
This does not include my rent which I cannot afford, so have been forced into a position of being homeless.



I've included a short brief on my story and illness below.

I have been severely sick and debilitated since the age of 14.
For many years, I was confined to my bed, barely able to sit up. I was mostly in atrophy, and the doctors had no idea what to do with me, so they all turned their backs on me.

Eventually, in 2013. I was diagnosed by two different doctors with lyme disease, and have been on a journey of discovery and healing ever since.

I have demonstrated that this can be cured, and I have recovered most of my health back. Being able to now at times; hike mountains, ride a bicycle again, accomplish daily tasks of taking care of myself again, and I feel like I've been getting my life back after 15+ years of being so severely disabled, that I was almost in a wheelchair.

Unfortunately, I have spent every single penny that I've had, and had to sell off all my belongings in order to pay for my medical costs. My friends and family have nothing more to give, and I have also become homeless since last year, and have at times been sleeping under trees without a tent in the pouring rain, with little to no help in a lot of these circumstances.
I am only here, because of how complicated it is with the lyme.

Although my body has recovered and is operating at 80+% most days, I still cannot work a conventional job, due to a number of factors that can severely compromise my health and set me on a downward spiral into collapse.
A good example; being in the past 2 weeks, my organs going into almost complete failure. While being homeless, having to hitch-hike around and no where to stay. I ended up going into almost full on collapse, and almost had to go to the hospital.
I am needing your help, to pay for my costs of recovery, to keep up with my fight, and to get me back on my feet after a very difficult journey. I simply cannot afford to fight this alone anymore…

If you can please share this with your friends, networks, family. Anything that might help me in this battle with a disease that no one knows anything about, but is in many respects the hardest and most challenging disease to deal with, in all it's complexities.

Thank you.

I want to say thank you to everyone who has helped out so far. I am currently homeless, couch surfing and have gotten very sick in the past few days.
My liver, gull bladder and kidneys and other organs went into failure a few days ago, and then I had to go hitch-hike and find a new place to stay while my health was in decline. I've been struggling the past few days without my vitamins and things I need for my health, so this comes at a time that helps me quite a bit.

My doctor isn't able to treat me any further without payment. So I'll be able to afford the treatment I need to have my body recover from the damage that happened over the past 3-4 days.

Thank you everyone.
very sick with an amino iv.
