Jessi M.

I have stage 3 (chronic) lyme disease with several co-infections. Unfortunately I have a severe case, and I've had lyme since I was a young child. This disease has made a huge impact on my life. Because of living with lyme this fundraiser is very near and dear to my heart! This disease is horrific, can quickly progress, is very painful, will challenge every aspect of your life, & can be deadly! It has effected my joints, heart, muscular system, central nervous system, and the worst part is no cure! Although there's no cure, to extend my life I'm constantly with going treatments to try & stop it from progressing further. These treatments are extremely expensive, and most insurances will not cover them. Any awareness, and all donations to help with research would mean more then I could begin to express!!! Please read below so you can understand a little more about this cause. I appreciate anyone who chooses to make a donation, big or small! Every dollar makes a huge difference. Please spread the word to your friends, their friends, and anyone who can possibly help us in making a difference with this disease! And thank you not only from me, but from all others who have been touched by this disease.

TBDA's #TickNTweet Virtual Walk goal is to raise more than $30,000 from now until October 28th (on Facebook & Twitter) to help us build awareness, promote advocacy and support initiatives to find a cure for Lyme and other Tick-Borne diseases. 

People from all over the world joined together last year on our Virtual Walk. We want to beat last year's goal and need your help. $1, $25, $50, $100 -- it all helps.

And, if you donate $35 or more we'll send you a special edition #TickNTweet Virtual Walk t-shirt!

So get on board and help us eradicate Lyme and tick-borne diseases by signing up here and spreading the word.
