WHO ARE THE FIGHTING TIGERS?

Tavia Morse-Salvadalena, Founder

Fighting Tigers is a Non-for-Profit Organization that was started by Tavia Morse-Salvadalena. Tavia is a business woman and entrepreneur who is fighting Lyme currently. Tavia was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme disease in October of 2015 after many years of not getting answers about her random health symptoms.  Tavia started up Fighting Tigers in April of 2017 because she felt there are so many other people that need to be helped with this horrible disease. Most can not afford the financial burden that Lyme brings on. Therefore, Tavia thought it would be a great idea to set up a fund for those that need that little extra help.  Tavia understands the financial burden a Lyme diagnosis can have on a family, therefore she wants to pay if forward as best she can. Tavia is still fighting the complications of Lyme disease daily as well, but continues to improve thanks to her doctor and passion to beat this disease.

We also need more people to get tested as soon as symptoms arise. Your donation will help people get the most accurate and fastest test possible.
  • Furthermore, treatments for Lyme patients is very expensive. Since most treatments are considered “alternative” by the insurance companies, most end up paying out of pocket.
