RIP Lyme Community Memorial


The Lyme Community Memorial

This Lyme Memorial was put together by the folks at We add names as people send them to us.  The Lyme & tick borne illness community is a tight community. We have all banded together online to support and help one another. We become friends online and have formed our own family, as many people feel abandoned by their own friends, families, doctors, and other medical professionals. To those of you who stuck by your loved one through thick and thin, thank you.

We put this together because we want to honor each soul lost to this disease or who have become an integral part of our community such as Lyme doctors and researchers. .  Unfortunately many folks are misdiagnosed or their Lyme has progressed to conditions such as MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, psychiatric conditions and many many other diseases. As researchers try to link Lyme to these other diseases and conditions, please realize that the people listed below are only the tip of the iceberg of those we have lost.

We also lose many to suicide.

The point of this memorial is to remember those we have lost from our community. Some may have died from Lyme complications while others died from cancer while others were just an integral part of our Lyme community such as Dr. Burgdorfer. We cannot say for sure that the Lyme bacteria was for certain the cause of any of these deaths.

If you want to see the statistics of causes of death please visit here.

Special thanks to Stephanie Harrington for all your help in putting this together.  Also a big thank you to Christina who makes the quilt squares to add to the Lyme Quilt for people who pass from Lyme Disease.
