The Challenge for 2020

Get it!

Lyme patients often say, “I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy.”

But in their pain, grief, and isolation, they’ll also say, “I wish everyone would get this disease.

Then they’d know what it’s like.”


The #Lyme4Lent Challenge was conceived as a way to do both: give people the opportunity to experience firsthand some of the challenges and suffering brought on by Lyme Disease, while also giving them an incredible health tool to prevent systemic chronic illness from taking hold of their bodies.

We have a saying in Lyme: "You don't get it 'til you get it!"  So we're inviting you (in a much safer way) to GET LYME, and become a part of our support community!
