Treatment I Research I Advocacy
The Lyme Treatment Foundation is a global all-volunteer non-profit organization that provides medical treatment grants to people of all ages in the United States and Canada to fund diagnostic testing and treatment of Lyme disease and the associated tick-borne illnesses.
We provide grants up to $4,000 to those in need to help pay for blood tests and long-term treatment of Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases.
Since launching in 2019, we have awarded treatment grants to people living in the United States and Canada and will be expanding our granting program to those living in Europe starting summer 2021.
We also launched or research initiative in April 2021 where we will begin funding tick-borne disease research.
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 fund diagnostic testing and treatment for as many as possible, so that those suffering from Lyme disease and the other tick-borne illnesses may go on to live healthy, happy and fulfilling lives.
In April 2021, we launched our biomedical research granting program. Lyme Treatment Foundation is dedicated to funding research that will directly impact those suffering from Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses.
We are interested in funding research projects that aim to find better treatments and/or therapies to alleviate the suffering of those battling chronic Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses.
We will begin funding Lyme disease research in Fall 2021.
Please consider making a donation! 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!
