Purpose of PALS~
“Partners Against Lyme (and Tick Associated Diseases) was founded to advocate for and protect the rights of patients suffering from tick-associated diseases. We are unique in that we are an inclusive umbrella entity for many of the related support and advocacy groups, both nationally and internationally. PAL unites and empowers these groups so that collectively (partner-to-partner) we can fight to remove the many roadblocks preventing better testing, more accurate diagnostics, and improved treatment options for such diseases.”

Vision of PALS~
“Our long-term vision is clear and simple: a cure for all stages of Lyme and other tick associated diseases. For the immediate focus, however, PAL believes that improvements in the lives of individuals suffering from Lyme and other tick-borne diseases can be better accomplished by advocacy organizations uniting and working together in true partnership. Our power lies in the strength of the sheer numbers of us affected by these diseases and our collective determination to challenge the current status quo.”
