The night before first Lyme event I ever went to, (the “Unmask the Cure” Gala in NYC) on November 3, 2010, a bunch of us Lymies were walking around NYC going to dinner. It was the first time many of us met after being friends for years online. After dinner when we stepped out of the restaurant there was a section taped off where Jordin Sparks was signing autographs. A couple of us went up to her and started a conversation about Lyme Disease. Deb Rice handed her a Lyme bracelet and she put it on and posed for pictures with us.
