What is Lyme disease? Lyme disease is a tick borne illness that is rapidly spreading world wide. It is surpassing Breast Cancer and other cancers. More than 300,000 people a year are diagnosed. And those are just the ones that are reported. It is estimated more than that have Lyme but have been misdiagnosed because Lyme is the great imitator of other illnesses.
All proceeds will be donated to new lyme testing research and those that need to be tested. The problem with today’s testing is that they are not 100% accurate. An accurate lyme test would mean less chronic lyme patients being diagnosed. Imagine being able to walk into your local pharmacy and having the ability to purchase a lyme test you can take home when experiencing Lyme symptoms? They key is early detection. Like any disease, early detection gives a patient a better chance at fighting the disease and essentially putting the disease into remission.
We will walk for all suffering, battling Lyme disease. We also remember those that lost their life to Lyme disease. Lyme kills and Lyme has no cure! But together with a better testing and research for a cure, we can prevent a life-long battle that doesn’t have to be.
