Partner in Lyme
Partner in Lyme was founded in January 2020 in response to my teenage daughter's ongoing battle with Lyme Disease.
Many people don't realize that insurance does not cover Lyme Disease treatment. Treatment is expensive and requires many extras in order to move closer to healing. Tired of hearing, "If I only had an extra $1000, I could get a juicer, or an essential oil kit, or a home sauna, or a wheelchair", I set out to give residents of Connecticut that extra $1000.
We know $1000 is not enough to treat Lyme Disease comprehensively, however, we hope it helps it gives you reassurance that are not alone in the fight. Partner in Lyme exists to help carry your burden.

Carrying the Burden of Lyme
The average Lyme patient can expect to pay $20,000-$50,000 out of pocket yearly to treat Chronic, or Late Stage Lyme Disease. Most diseases are covered by insurance and allow for a customizable treatment plan that fits the patient, but not Lyme Disease. Insurance companies cover 2 weeks of antibiotics and then the patient is on their own to cover the costs for doctor visits, herbs, supplements & antibiotics, holistic treatments, therapies and more.
Partner in Lyme seeks to help carry the financial burden of Lyme Disease with a $1000 gift. 100% of donations are given to our Awardees. When you partner with us, you help carry someone's financial burden. When you apply with us, our hope is that you find a community that cares and supports you in your journey to health. We pledge to be here for you long after the check is cashed and the money spent.
"$1,000 would be an incredible gift to help ease some stress, especially while work is limited, due to the current Corona Virus.
I greatly appreciate your time and consideration. What you are doing really has the ability to make a difference in a life like mine!"

"Creating art is a very healing experience, but having the presence of art in a person’s life can be just as healing. Deciding to share the healing power of art with
Partner in Lyme was a very easy decision for me to make."
