LymeLight Foundation was started by two families who have children diagnosed with Lyme disease. Through their children’s struggle, both families discovered the incredible expense of battling Lyme disease and the inability of many families to afford proper treatment. Unfortunately, most treatment plans for Chronic Lyme are not covered by insurance. Existing Lyme foundations mainly focus on funding research and awareness. LymeLight Foundation is uniquely dedicated to funding medical treatment for individuals with Lyme.
The Foundation awards grants to eligible children and young adults through 25 years of age. It is the goal and the hope of the Foundation that through these grants children can receive proper treatment and medications in their fight against Lyme disease.
The LymeLight Foundation is recognized by both the IRS and State of California Franchise Tax Board as a tax-exempt 501 (c) 3 organization. Contributions to the LymeLight Foundation are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
