I hope it is alright to post this here-LymeNet

Elizabeth is an amazing person, and she needs our help. I know, we all need the same help, but her case is really heartbreaking. I used to talk to her on the phone and she is the sweetest lady, she deserves our help and to get where she needs to go!

Anyone want to help me fundraiser?? I will start up the Lyme bracelets again, is there an interest in them?? The ones that said..HOPE, COURAGE, ENDURANCE, BRAVERY!

Who's in??? I'll do the distribution myself again, give 100% to Elizabeth.

here is the link

They say they need $15,000 per month? Hmmmmm. If she needs surgeries wouldn't insurance pay for that? Or, doesn't she have any? If no insurance and no income for 6 years like the story says, she should be on Medicaid and disability. Have they tried community fundraisers? How much of treatment cost is associated with Endometrios, which may not be related to her LD. Insurance covers this.

I feel bad for her, but $15,000 a month I do not buy. I did not think we were supposed to solicit on this site.

I have medical bills too. I cannot afford to see an LLMD any longer and pay for treatment. My health is declining. But i will never ask others to donate to pay for my healthcare. Ever. but that is just me. I do not want to be a burden to anyone. I am ok with dying and I know I will die from this disease. Its pretty much a given.

Yep. She sounds like she is in the same shape as a lot of us.

Needs to move closer to doctor or at least be well enough to fly with Angel Flight to doctors.

Needs funds to get the supplements and other medical needs.

Needs help with household chores and meal prep.

What the answers are, I do not know. Last time I talked with my LLMD he said he has so many patients in the same shoes.

I keep going back to the idea of a Healing Ranch.

Pineapple, I certainly wouldn't call it soliciting - I would call it asking for a helping hand and there's certainly nothing wrong with that.

I'm sure they've exhausted all other means or her DOCTOR wouldn't be reaching out to others to help this woman, and it also obviously speaks as to how ill she is.

If you can't offer any type of monetary support at least offer a little sympathy - from one Lymie to another it seems the least you could do.

I am BTW, interested in the bracelets...PM me Condor to let me know how else I can help.

Pineapple-SOB-SCROLL ON BY!!!

Nothing to contribute but your negativity?

Just because you've apparently given up doesn't mean the rest of us have.

And as mentioned asking for help and soliciting funds is two different things.

I'm in the same boat as you are.

No longer have an LLMD or can afford treatment but I won't give up.

As far as not being a burden, you only mean financially.

Obviously by your post you are an emotional burden.


WildCondor, thanks for the post and I'll check out the link.

Oh, how heartbreaking.

I may be interested in on the bracelets too. How much are they?

Just a thought...

It says she is a psychologist...so, the doctor who signed this may not be "her doctor", but another friend, who is also a psychologist/psychiatrist.
