Let’s Talk about Lyme

Recently I had the pleasure of being interviewed by local cable TV host John Ricciutti of Radnor Studio 21. We had an excellent discussion about Lyme Disease, and I really appreciated the opportunity to talk about my journey and advocacy work. Click below to watch.

After watching it, please share it with friends and family and all those with whom you think would benefit. Most importantly, let’s keep fighting to get the word out there that Lyme disease is for real and effective diagnosis and treatment is crucial.

5 More Days!

DSC_7433 (1)May is right around the corner, and with it brings warm weather, lots of great outdoor activities and plenty of time in the sun.

For those of us with Lyme disease, May is one of the most important times of the year for reasons other than sun. Enacted National Lyme Awareness Month by the Lyme Disease Organization, May is a month devoted to awareness, education and advocacy in the area of Lyme disease.

In light of this, I will be interviewed this Thursday, April 30, at 7 pm on Love, Liberty and Lipgloss Blog Radio and will talk about the best ways to enjoy the outdoors while protecting oneself from the bite of a tick. I will also share my personal journey to recovery and discuss the latest information I have learned about Lyme disease.

Join me this Thursday at 7 pm with Love Liberty & Lip Gloss co-hosts Lisa Tarves and Daria Anne as I give the lowdown on “All Things Lyme,” including where to get help if you’re currently suffering. To listen online, click on this link or listen by phone by dialing (347) 945-7246

And in keeping with my part of spreading the word during National Lyme Awareness Month, look for my daily posts throughout the month of May entitled “Did You know?”
