The Lyme Treatment Foundation is an global, all volunteer non-profit organization that provides medical treatment grants, worth up to $4,000 USD to people of all ages in Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales) and the United States.
We also award testing grants to those in Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales) and the United States.
Since launching in 2019, we have awarded $425,000 in treatment and testing grants to people living in Canada, Germany, the UK (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales) and the United States.
We also began funding tick-borne disease research in April 2021.
Lyme disease and the associated tick-borne illnesses can be devastating, both physically and financially to those affected. And our goal is to help fund diagnostic testing and treatment for as many as possible.
Lyme disease is often undiagnosed, due to the lack of accurate blood tests. Currently, there is no 100% accurate blood test for Lyme disease or the associated co-infections, often leaving people and families sick with no option for treatment.
Private labs across the country have come up with accurate testing for these tick-borne illnesses, but testing can be very expensive.
A full panel tick-borne disease blood test, which tests for Lyme disease, as well as co-infections, like babesia and bartonella can cost over $1,000 dollars for a single person. So many cannot afford to be diagnosed, and therefore are unable to receive appropriate treatment.
This prolongs the suffering of many, as they become sicker and sicker, some are unable to work, raise their families or go to school.
If they do receive a diagnosis, seeing a Lyme literate physician is very costly as well, typically costing hundreds of dollars for a single visit. With so many being unable to afford this, many suffer indefinitely.
Our mission at the Lyme Treatment Foundation is to help those who are sick and suffering, get properly diagnosed and fund both their diagnostic testing as well as their treatment, from a Lyme literate medical doctor, so that they are properly diagnosed, treated and may go on to live healthy, happy and fulfilling lives!
In April 2021, we launched our biomedical research initiative. We are dedicated to funding biomedical 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 starting in October 2021.
Please consider donating! Many are in need of our help. Let's find a cure and achieve our goal of Lyme treatment for all!
