MLDA has been very helpful to me in negotiating treatment for my illness. They are a valuable tool for anyone in the state who has lyme disease.

I can't tell you how many people I have referred to this organization. They do very important work raising Lyme Awareness, helping those who have been bitten by a tick or who need to be tested for Lyme Disease, testing areas for ticks/Lyme Disease and much more. With this disease prevention is so important so we desperately need MLDA!

MLDA has provided my family and I with much needed information about Lyme Disease in Michigan and assisted with finding a Lyme literate physician. When someone else has questions about Lyme, I send them to MLDA.

When my son was diagnosed with lyme disease 7 years ago I had no idea where to turn. Thankfully I found the MDLA. The president was so helpful in finding a doctor and just general support has been great. We attended a MDLA support group that was active in our area for a while, and again, very helpful people. Always good information, always time to talk. Have referred many people to the group and always everyone is happy with the support they recieve. The leadership goes above and beyond the call of duty! Great origanization!!

When I have a question, or need to find a specialist who has seen other lyme patients, I can call the Michigan Lyme disease association and they are able to answer my questions or let me know where I may be able to find a dr.
I know of no other group that helps lyme patients like the MLDA.
Many people would suffer needlessly if it was not for the Mlda.

I belong to a lot of different lyme groups on the net and via mail. The MLDA is one of the best. They work very hard to help others with this disease. They have a great phone support system, web posting site and even have some local support groups. Thanks so much to Linda and all of you who have supported me in the past.

There are no doctors from my area who understand how to treat Lyme disease. The infectious disease physicians do not believe chronic Lyme exists. Well for more than 2 years I have had it and now have proof positive with accurate testing. With help from Michigan Lyme Association I found a doctor who knows how to treat Lyme right in Michigan. Without their info I would still be searching...and sicker. I can't thank them enough and finally feel like I am on the road to recovery.

This is a great source for people who have Lyme Disease to get questions answered and have great support. Lyme can be a lonely illness because often you don't feel well enough to get out with others. The group provides the support that I need! I am glad that I don't have to feel alone!

MLDA has been a great source of help and support for my family. It's tough dealing with an illness that is not understood by the traditional medical community, but, knowing there are others dealing with the same issues has been a tremendous support.
