She learned first-hand two years how destructive Lyme Disease can be when her daughter, Julia, contracted Lyme with two co‐infections: Bartonella and Babesia.  Thanks to her amazing team of doctors, Julia is finally on the road to recovery—but her journey has been difficult.  Susan looks forward to increasing the broad-based knowledge of diagnosis and testing for Lyme in the medical community.
