Lyme Disease Association holding informational event in Fort Erie [Ontario,Canada]
A tick can get under your skin without it even being realized for months and sometimes years.
May is a month dedicated to raising awareness about Lyme Disease and Fort Erie resident Melissa Hodges-Young, who is involved with the recently-founded Niagara Area Chapter of the Lyme Disease Association of Ontario, wants the public to know how serious of an issue this is.
In 2009, Hodges-Young was diagnosed with the disease after multiple years of not feeling well and without any idea of what was ailing her.
A specialist in Toronto finally told her she had contracted Lyme Disease from a tick bite she believes was experienced while turkey-hunting with her husband.
