CHCH TV Hamilton: Niagara man diagnosed with Lyme disease heading overseas for treatment
October 3rd, 2018
For a Niagara man diagnosed with Lyme disease, being able to walk without a cane is a small victory. Now 26 year old Jeff Faber is on a mission to fully regain his health and in order to do so is turning to an expensive treatment overseas.
Three years ago Faber landed his dream job working in the kitchen at Trius Wintery in NOTL. But only 3 months after he began he started feeling flu like symptoms that would only get worse, to the point where he quit his job and begin walking with a cane.
Although Faber regained his movement through physiotherapy, he began to suspect Lyme disease was responsible for other symptoms and although he tested negative for the condition in Ontario, U.S. tests came back positive.
