Liz Seymour’s dear friend from high school, Jill Erro, has a beautiful daughter Julia, who was diagnosed with Lyme disease at the age of 9. The process for the diagnosis was agonizingly long, and Liz was so proud of how ardently Jill and her husband, Ed, advocated for their daughter’s health. As Jill says, “Ed and I feel so fortunate that we had the resources to make sure Julia received the treatment she needed, and could not imagine how difficult it would be if we had to decline treatment that would benefit her health due to finances.” She knows this is not the case for every family affected by Lyme disease. This is why they teamed up to host a fundraiser through Noonday Collection. Liz said it felt like a natural partnership, because Noonday also advocates for vulnerable families. Noonday does this by providing dignified jobs creating stunning, handcrafted accessories. When Jill hosted an online Noonday trunk show, she created a marketplace for these pieces and a fundraising opportunity for LymeLight.
