About the Event
Mothers Against Lyme is an initiative of Project Lyme that hosts virtual meet-ups via Zoom. These meet-ups occur a couple of times a month and are geared towards mothers raising children with Lyme, or mothers with Lyme themselves. It serves as a support group where you will discuss a common theme each meeting, share stories of your own struggle caused by Lyme, as well as hear advice from other mothers going through the same things as you.
