Lyme disease is the most commonly reported vector borne illness in the United States. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2014, it was the fifth most common Nationally Notifiable disease. However, this disease does not occur nationwide and is concentrated heavily in the northeast and upper Midwest.
There is a two-step process for the diagnosis of Lyme disease but there is no longer a vaccine against the disease. Once diagnosed there are antibiotics used for treatment that may be very expensive. Even when covered by health insurance, those diagnosed with Lyme disease may face mounting out-of-pocket expenses.
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with Lyme disease, create a Move Your Mountain Online Fundraising campaign to bring awareness about the treatment and prevention. Engage the power of the crowd and share your campaign with friends and family. Don’t let anyone suffering with a treatable disease be without treatment.
