Lyme disease. It is the fastest growing vector borne disease in the country. If not diagnosed in the early stages and treated properly, it can cause serious, disabling and sometimes, chronic illness. While anyone can contract the disease, children are at the greatest risk of becoming infected. They make up approximately 25% of all cases. In fact, kids, ages 5 to 9, are diagnosed with Lyme disease more often than any other age group, aside from seniors. Yet, there’s little education and awareness about the disease for this parent/child population.
We understand it can be hard to see the signs of Lyme disease in children. We know what happens when a child doesn’t get proper treatment. We’ve seen the toll it takes on our child, and the damage this disease can do. A child’s voice can be a powerful tool for creating change. Our Storywall is their wall. It’s your wall. Share your child’s story. And let them be heard.
