"My daughter has Lyme Disease and a co-infection of bartonella. Treatment is for a year and our doctor doesn't take insurance. I can't imagine how we are going to pay for this treatment."

"Office visits cost me $300. I go every 2-3 months. The blood work ranges from $770-$1300 each time. Last year Lyme care cost me 20% of my income."
~Mother of our March Awardee
“I was a single, independent woman with no close family. I could no longer work or do almost anything to help myself. After continued months of inconclusive tests and confusing diagnoses, I was finally guided (mostly through word of mouth) to iGenix and received a positive result for Lyme and Ehrlichia. Further testing with Galaxy showed that I was also positive for Bartonella, and I am also diagnosed with secondary mast cell activation, vasculitis, autoimmune encephalitis, and PTSD - all seemingly resulting from this tick-borne illness. Unfortunately, I am unable to afford continued treatment without additional financial help.”
