Our hearts are broken over the loss of such a great Lyme disease leader. She was such a dear friend to all of us, and was very important this last year for speaking out at the PAL meeting. May she rest in peace with the angels.
Words from Donna MacPherson Lugar:
The Canadian Lyme Community lost a true hero last night! Elizabeth Wood was working for all of us in Ottawa at the 2nd Reading of Elizabeth May’s National Lyme Disease Strategy Bill C-442 on March 3rd. Her tireless work over the last many years has helped raise the issue of Lyme disease and co-infections throughout Canada! She was also the co-founder of the Canadian National Lyme & Associated Diseases Society (CNLADS) of which I am a Nova Scotia Representative. She will be sorely missed by all of us in the Lyme community. RIP Elizabeth Wood! Thank you for all that you have done and we hope to see all your hard work pay off – SOON!
