My friend, Ashley, over at Lymenaide, has started a project to create a Nationwide for Lyme disease. Her brother, is filming a Public Service Announcement! I am so excited about it! It is time to get the word out about Lyme Disease. Knowledge is power and a vital part of getting diagnosed early and properly to avoid chronic lyme disease.
In order to bring this about, some funds must be raised. There are some production and distribution costs that need to be covered. Most donations are small, just a few dollars. They are adding up quickly! The goal is to raise about $5,000. All donations are kept track of on Ashley's website, here. When you donate, you will be acknowledged there too. Please help us spread awareness about Lyme Disease!
For all the different donation methods and options, please go to How to Donate.
