Wyoming Lyme Patient Needs Our Help

“My family needs me, the world needs me. Please help if you can.”

It takes a lot of courage to ask for help, and it is not something the patients we have met or worked with do lightly or easily.  For many, it takes months or years beyond the point of really needing help to finally be ready to ask for it…or, more likely, to no longer have a choice.

Featured Lyme Disease/Lyme Sucks Challenge ~ Thank You Ride For Lyme!

Thanks to Dan and Tanner of Ride For Lyme, and to Jan of Manitoba Lyme Disease!  You weren’t late at all, we knew you’d be good for it!

We said we’d make your donation on your behalf, but we’ll send one in to Canlyme (Lyme Sucks Challenge) in addition to ILADS (Lyme Disease Challenge), as we should have thought of that in the first place!

What a lovely, lovely, lovely location!  Lyme-a-rita is a nice and fitting touch (nicely done Jan).

You can see our challenge here and additional featured regional challenges and challenge info here.

Ride For Lyme ~ You Have Been Lyme Disease Challenged!

Our very first collective Lyme Disease Challenge goes out to Dan and Tanner and the Ride for Lyme team (aka the Adalaine project), in a location of their choosing as they cross the continent for Lyme patients and their friend!

This challenge includes the patient they ride for that day, IF the patient is well enough.  If not, we’ve got that patient covered, as we’ll be doing extra ‘bites’ on behalf of that patient in their honor.

So, Dan and Tanner, here’s how the Lyme Disease Challenge works!

Have you taken a Bite Out of Lyme disease yet?

If you haven’t, we’d highly encourage you to join this Wyoming family, and thousands of families (and teams, celebrities, news stations, and public figures) across and beyond the nation in doing so.  It encourages patients, spreads awareness, and raises money for Lyme disease research.  All funds raised through challenges and t-shirt sales go to ILADS.

This is an inventive, unique, and inspiring Lyme Disease Challenge from the small town of Ryegate, Montana (with a population of around 300 residents), by Carole Will Bennett.  Her original posts are included here, followed by a few links and facts about the challenge.

She was also willing to share a response to a comment in one of her Facebook posts that shines some light on what she and her family have been through over many years with Lyme disease.

I’m willing to bet that the photos in her first post depict the largest collective #LymeDiseaseChallenge in the state of Montana by the time it occurred and to date.  If I find I’m mistaken, I will be very surprised and you will most certainly hear about it. And if you find that I’m mistaken, please let me know about it!

~ Thank you Carole! ~
