Raising Hope for Families with Lyme

LymeLight Foundation Grant Recipient, ToriTori – Tears of Joy

I am in tears writing this. I am incredibly grateful for what LymeLight Foundation has done for me. I had no hope in paying for the treatment, until I was awarded the lifetime grant.

In 2012, I had unexplainable pain in both of my legs. Over the course of seven years, the pain had spread to my entire body. I was unable to hold a job nor finish my education. I was living a very debilitating life full of wheelchairs, crutches, and pain pills. I was miserable. In December 2017, it was confirmed I had Lyme disease. Finally, an answer!

I immediately began a treatment plan from my ILADS doctor. It is now October 2018 and I have been on antibiotic and IV treatments for one full year. This grant has lasted me an entire year of medical costs.

My pain has decreased by 40% and I do not have bedridden days as I did a year ago. I am able to work part-time, grocery shop, go on vacations, host gatherings—things I could not do before. I still have to use my wheelchair on a daily basis, however I now use it less.

Because of what LymeLight Foundation provided me, I am on the road to a full recovery. Thank you, thank you, thank you for restoring my hope in beating this disease!
