To the editor:
This is an appeal to the medical public or people who have been treated in Ontario and are now cured from Lyme disease.
My daughter-in-law has contracted the disease. She had blood tests here in Ontario which have come back negative. And after being told to send a sample to California at her expense of $500 . . . it came back positive.
Her own doctor told her she could not treat her because she does not know enough about the disease.
Jen now has to go to the U.S. for treatment and is terrified because of the financial burden to their savings and future. After eight months of feeling like she is in a fog, dizzy, headaches, terrible pain in her neck and head, loss of sleep, appetite and weight, and anxiety from fear of the unknown, and being away from her job since Christmas, Jen needs a break and professional help to get her back on the road to recovery. Could someone please help us find medical help for Jen and please – in our own country?
You can reach out to her at [email protected]
Thank you in advance,
While you are here, we have a small ask.
