May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month

There are many different things people can do to bring about Lyme awareness. We are all at different levels of sickness so we will list the events that are going on now, for those of you who are well enough to attend. We will also list the things you can do from home, if you are homebound. Which, sadly we know is the case in many circumstances with Lyme patients. If you are a family member or friend of a person with Lyme Disease, they would be highly honored to see you share this post or even better, partake in any of these activities to show your support. Thank you all and happy Lyme Awareness Month!
