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.
