This is not a food post, but one that is more important to read about than food. My friend Anna has been suffering from Lyme Disease for a couple of years now. She first contracted the disease in 2008 from an infected tick bite. Since then, her life has been flipped upside down and she can no longer be the happy, energetic, and healthy individual that she once was. She has put her life and career goals on hold because she simply doesn’t have enough energy or health to live like a regular human being. You can read her story here.
Canada doesn’t treat Lyme Disease, so Anna has to travel to the states every 6 weeks to get treatment. This is not cheap! She has to pay out of her own pocket and it’s now come to a point where she just doesn’t have enough to cover her own medical treatment (meds, doctor visits, IV Lyme Treatment, etc.).
If you are interested in learning more about her story and can help out by giving just a little bit, we can help her on her road to recovery. It breaks my heart to know that she could give up the chance of fighting Lyme if she doesn’t have the funds for it.
Thank you for reading, guys! Food posts to resume tomorrow!! (And boy do I got a lot of good ones coming up!! ^_^ )
