Ending Lyme Disease In Our Community and The World
A Huge THANK YOU to everyone who joined us in our cause helping end Lyme disease! Check out our latest cause to see how we're making a difference now!
Lyme disease (LD) is an infection caused by Borrelia burgdorferi, a type of bacterium called a spirochete (pronounced spy-ro-keet) that is carried by deer ticks. An infected tick can transmit the spirochete to the humans and animals it bites. Untreated, the bacterium travels through the bloodstream, establishes itself in various body tissues, and can cause a number of symptoms, some of which are severe. Often, an erythema migrans (EM) rash appears within 7-14 days at the site of a tick bite.
The American Lyme Disease Foundation works to help people make wise healthcare decisions by providing key information on Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections to the public and medical community. Particular emphasis is placed on the importance of prevention and early intervention in avoiding complicated, expensive and potentially debilitating long-term illness. This upcoming May is Lyme Disease Awareness month and we are helping the foundation in their mission of fighting Lyme disease and educating our community on how they can protect themselves.
