Reviews for Lyme Research Alliance, Inc; Formerly Time For Lyme Inc

Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 5 stars  

I have personally interacted with many members of the Lyme Research Alliance, and can attest to their high level of commitment and interest in the support of finding proper diagnostic methods, and eventual treatment and cure of Lyme disease. The Board and Co - Presidents have been ceaseless in their efforts over the years. These efforts have not gone unrewarded as they have managed to engage excellent researchers, uncovering and collecting much information about this tick borne disease.

Lyme Research Alliance is an amazing tick-borne illness research organization. The Board and Co-Presidents have all served without financial compensation for over 15 years; their work is a mission to all of them. In addition, LRA is committed to making scientific advancements toward a cure for tick-borne illness, and is one of the few nonprofits (if not the only one) that is working toward a test for Lyme disease that shows if a person has active infection. By accomplishing this, physicians and researchers will be one step closer to unraveling many of the mysteries surrounding tick-borne diseases.

Lyme Research Alliance needs additional funding to complete the work that will benefit everyone who spends time outdoors from potential crippling illness.
