The topic of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses can often be quite scary. This holiday season, we would like to increase awareness and strengthen our community with some positivity. For the next 12 days we will post statements from 12 people who have been affected by Lyme disease, and a gift or lesson that it has given them. Our first participant is our very own, Anne Messenger, who is grateful for the work that the Alliance has been able to do for the Lyme community.
