The Lyme Treatment Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization that was started to help people of all ages, across the United States and Canada fund testing and treatment for Lyme disease and co-infections.
Lyme disease and associated co-infections 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 more accurate testing for tick-borne illnesses, but testing can be very expensive.
A full panel tick-borne illness blood test, which tests for Lyme disease, as well as co-infections, like Babesia and Bartonella can cost over $1,300 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 LLMD 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 goal at the Lyme Treatment Foundation is to help those who are sick, 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.
Please consider donating. Many are in need of our help. Let's achieve our goal of Lyme treatment for all!
