Jeannette Jeannette  ORLANDO, FL
It has been a difficult choice to come forward and explain to everyone why I decided to sign up for "Go Fund Me". At this time I am forced to reach out and raise money for the treatment of my chronic Lyme disease.

I have Cronic Lyme disease and I suffer  from many Lyme symptoms, such as extreme chronic fatigue, cognitive impairment, joint pain, mood swings, muscle pain, and neurological problems. Many days I feel like my head is in a cloud and I am disoriented. I wake up with severe joint stiffness and numb hands. There have been many weeks when I am in bed one to two days at a time from the pain and fatigue I experience through out my body.

The first basic treatment was rounds of antibiotics that only seemed to help for a short time. I have located a Lyme specialist in Clearwater, FL. He is extremely knowledgable when it comes to treating Lyme disease  & terminally ill cancer patients. His consultation fee is $350.00 which I have managed to save and will be seeing him June 15, 2016. At that point there will be extensive testing to tailor a treatment for me. The testing, I am told will be in a range of $4,000. plus. The monthly treatment will be over $4,000. and could take several months. Unfortunately this type of treatment is not covered by the insurance I carry.
if you would like to checkout the Dr. you can search life works wellness center in Clearwater, FL. 

I am sure you can imagine having any type of disease can make a person feel helpless and dramatically changes one's life and out look. My family is not close by but I have a few great friends and a roommate that helps me with my four year old daughter. I am a single mom, I receive sporadic child support and at this time can no longer work. I desperately want to be a mom and get the life back I once had.

Any donation is greatly appreciated! May you and your family be well.

Please reach out to me with any questions.

Thank you

Hello everyone, I would like to take a moment to update everyone. As you know I saw the Dr in Clearwater Fl. on June 1st. It was such am amazing apt and I'm so excited to have a treatment plan set up.
I need 3,912. to complete the required blood work them i can start treatment. The total cost of treatment is 13,678.00.
A few other things that are going on with my body came up during my exam and testing. I have Auto Immune Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and many Co-infections, that are very common when you have Lyme Disease. The Dr. took an sample of my blood and placed it under a very powerful microscope in front of me. We looked at my blood and I was shocked to be able to actually see how infected my red blood cells were. You could actually see the bacteria and parasite's attached to my red blood cells. We even found a Lyme bacteria swimming in my blood trying to get into a red blood cell. This was so mind blowing to actually see and put some reality into how serious this problem is and how bad my health really is. The perfect round circles are healthy cells and the infected cells are mis-shaped, overlapping and the ones with jagged edges are actual parasites, Lyme and other infectious bacteria attached to cell.

There is some great treatments available to me. I googled and have studies each treatment the Dr. is recommending. If anyone would like a list of each one please let me know and I would be more than happy to share them. I am really looking forward to treatment. Its like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have been sick for so long and just want more than anything to be well again. To be able to do the things I once did and be more active with my daughter. I spend so much time sick in bed that I feel she is missing out on quality time I could be spending with her.

I know it's not much but it's the thought right,? I'm sure you've been researching your condition and what tests etc..just remember you know your body more than the Dr so don't be afraid to demand certain tests. I'll keep you in my prayers and your daughter is a total cutie pie. Have a great day, Angela
