News & Updates

Four years ago, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease.

My journey started just before my 17th birthday, when I lost feeling in both of my legs. I was unable to walk, and remained this way for a number of months. I began an eight-year battle with chronic Lyme, suffering from a myriad of symptoms including flu-like, cardiovascular, depression, POTS, chronic fatigue, and sight loss, amongst others.

My case is not singular. There are tens of thousands of Americans that become infected with tick-born illness every year. I still search for answers in the medical field, and seek new treatment as my body attempts to respond to ever-changing symptoms.

I am running to illuminate the need for funding towards Lyme research, and for the empowerment of Chronically Ill patients to be connected with proper medical professionals, wellness regimens, and advocates. My involvement on Project Lyme’s Junior Board has allowed me to become intimately involved in the fight against Lyme, and I hope to continue these efforts as I progress towards homeostasis in my personal health journey.
