Welcome To LymePowerOfUs Campaign

Lyme Disease is the fastest growing vector-borne infectious disease globally but it can be stopped, if we all speak out and raise our voices. Together our single voice can become a roar. No organization can make this happen alone, which is why ILADS is asking you to empower this campaign by taking action.

There are many ways you can help. Your voice, your donation, your story; all are important. Please take a minute and do what you can to help us educate people worldwide, train physicians and give back to people financially devastated by this disease.

We’d love it if you did all the actions above. But if you’re strapped for time you can simply send out a quick message by facebook or twitter. Your voice makes a difference, so please take just a quick minute and help put an end to this epidemic by sending a message below.

What do we hope to achieve?

$100,000 raised by October 18, 2013 for the following:

While our goal may be lofty, it is our mission: A doctor trained in the appropriate diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease in every country, state/region, and hometown. The vision: When a person has been bitten by a tick, they can simply go to their primary care physician and get properly diagnosed and treated so that 2 years later they are not bedridden with difficult to treat chronic Lyme disease. We believe training doctors is the key to ending the Lyme disease epidemic.

The ILADEF Physician Training Program provides physicians the opportunity to study with Lyme-literate physicians and allows them to go back to their communities and offer appropriate treatment to people with Lyme disease.

This campaign also is focused on giving back to the people who are affected the most. People suffering from Lyme disease. 20% of the funds raised through the LymePowerofUs Campaign will be donated to LymeTap in Dr. Nick Harris’ name to provide assistance for initial Lyme-related lab tests to patients who demonstrate financial need.

Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment of Lyme disease means people will not get ill or they will quickly return to their former lives. Our aim is to eliminate chronic Lyme disease with a massive campaign of awareness and education that will end the suffering, and financial ruin that affects so many people worldwide.
