Our Mission

Our Mission

The Lyme Treatment Foundation, Inc. is an all volunteer, 501(c)3, non-profit organization that was started to help people of all ages, across the United States and Canada fund diagnostic testing and treatment for Lyme disease and co-infections. 

We provide $4,000 grants to those in need to help pay for blood tests and long-term treatment for Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses.

Lyme disease and the associated co-infections can be devastating both physically and financially and our goal is to help those who are suffering get an accurate blood test, so that they may receive a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment from a Lyme disease specialist.

Testing for Lyme disease is not 100% accurate, and many with Lyme disease do not test positive with the typical blood tests given in a doctor’s office. Without a positive blood test, doctors are unable to treat these patients. Many suffer for years before being referred to a Lyme disease specialist for private testing and treatment. 

While these private labs are much more accurate, they are also very costly and many cannot afford to get a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment on their own. 

Our goal at the Lyme Treatment Foundation is to help fund diagnostic testing and treatment for as many as possible, so that those suffering with Lyme disease and the other tick-borne illnesses may go on to live healthy, happy and fulfilling lives.

Please consider donating. Many are in need of life saving treatment. Many more are unable to work, raise their families or go to school because of this debilitating disease and they all need our help! 

Thank you for your generosity and support. Let's achieve our goal of Lyme treatment for all!
