CanLyme is a registered charitable organization (#864437603RR0001).
Too many Lyme disease patients had been previously diagnosed with other disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinsonism, various forms of arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome/ME, fibromyalgia, various heart disorders, Alzheimer’s Disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), irritable bowel syndrome, skin conditions, and many others, just to find out later that they had Lyme disease. Their quality of life was regained only after appropriate treatment for Lyme disease that goes far beyond what is in the doctor’s handbook.
CanLyme is currently seeking donations to fund necessary post-mortem and live subject human tissue study looking for the prevalence of the Borrelia bacteria in those people diagnosed with those other conditions. The cost of paying to treat all these other conditions is huge while the treatment is addressing only the symptoms, not the cause. A pill for each symptom for the rest of your life is not the answer… address the cause of the symptoms. With today’s understanding of genomics and proteomics we are lightyears ahead of where we were just 10 years ago in our ability to identify organisms… now lets get that work done.
Why donate to CanLyme?
Your donations help to spread awareness, promote education, fund research to improve Lyme diagnosis and treatment, and to understand how prevalent Lyme and other tick borne diseases are in the 2 million chronically ill population of Canada.
