Lyme Disease Awareness

“What is Lyme Disease?”

“Lyme Disease is a bacterial infection, most commonly contracted from a tick bite, that may initially cause a flu-like sickness.  Untreated, or inadequately treated, it may cause long term, persistent illness that can affect many systems of the body.  Other tick borne diseases are often contracted at the same time” (Fearn, et.al. 2009). Over 300,000 cases have been documented. Please become aware and learn more.
