Saskatchewan: Sask. Lyme disease patients are falling through the cracks
The Saskatchewan government says there have been three cases of Lyme disease in the province since 2008. Five Lyme patients beg to differ.
Anika Kosteniuk was 13 years old when a tick bite changed her life.
She was on vacation in Virginia, on the acreage of her great-aunt and uncle, when she found an eight-legged bug in her armpit.
Around the same time, on another acreage near Indian Head, Danah White also got a life-altering tick bite.
Like most Lyme patients seeking treatment in Saskatchewan, White and Kosteniuk have been through the medical-system ringer.
