This organization has been a wealth of information for myself and loved ones whom I am trying to help. I have called members of the MLDA multiple times and they have always been receptive to answering my questions, providing direction to websites to visit or books to read, I cannot say enough good things about the caring demeanor of Linda and others in the MLDA. They have never solicited donations when I have called, rather at every turn they have been completely dedicated to helping and providing information. A true definition of a non-profit

I do not have Lyme disease but this association has really informed me of the disease and what to look for and even how to educate others on what Lyme disease is. The MLDA has many brouchers and other informative materials. It truly is a great organization.

MDLA does a great job providing research and information on a disease that is severly misunderstood.

MLDA provides a wealth of information on all things Lyme related. I especially like their interest in homeopathic resources. As I've learned Lyme cannot be treated by conventional medications alone. Linda has been an invaluable resource and all the MLDA members owe her a great deal of gratitude.

The MLDA is a wonderful organization with caring and dedicated individuals, who are a great resource for those who need help with anything to do with Lyme Disease and associated confections. We strive to raise awareness through many research campaigns, brochures and much more. All to often we provide support to those in need to many newly diagnosed patients and health professionals seeking additional information. Without the MLDA, many would struggle in knowing where to go for help or information on what Lyme Disease is all about. I'm happy to serve as a board member, in continuing to help educate the public and assist in much of the planning the goes on for the association.

I've had lyme disease now for 18 years but took a year to get diagnosed. I was quite young at the time, 15 years old and my mom was desperate for help. We thank God every day that we came across the MLDA, and the president Linda at the time. She helped us immensely and has helped me to want to give back by joining the board. Without the MLDA, many people would be lost. They are THE best non-profit I know. I don't know where I'd be today without them.

The Michigan Lyme Disease Association has maintained excellence in public education, support, and
advocacy in a very caring and professional way for many years. Education for the public as well as Lyme disease patients, support groups and individual support for patients, interesting and entertaining annual events to raise funds for the organization, sponsoring conferences, appeals to the state government for decent recognition of Lyme disease as well as education and care - these are only a part of what MLDA does. And the MLDA newsletter and the website are both very carefully organized and information is always thoroughly documented.

As a neighbor, in Ohio, who has spent years trying to do just a few of the same things MLDA does, I really know what it takes to organize and maintain such an organization that makes such a huge difference for people who are suffering. I am in awe of the MLDA.

The Michigan Lyme Disease Assoc. (MLDA) is one of THE most helpful, knowledgeable, and compassionate organizations around. Our stories seem all to familiar. Countless Dr. Visits, years of being told there's not a thing wrong with you as you continue to deteriorate. This organization knows your story all to well. They are able to educate you on different treatments. The best thing... they are working overtime to educate those Doctors who have turned us away one to many times! I am so Blessed to have the MLDA a part of my life in fighting this disease!

I think all these 5 stars speak for themselves! I have never met an organization so kind and so well informed. If you have never suffered with Lyme's or do not know anyone it is a very scary disease to have. It attacks each person differently and therefore your symptoms may differ from the next person.

MLDA has been a blessing! From the simplest to the most difficult questions they always help in any way they can. It doesn't matter if your a member or not. They want to help everyone have a decent quality of life.

The MLDA far exceeds the 5 stars! Thank you for all your help this past year!

God Bless,

Beth

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.

This is a fantastic organization. It is very informational and helpful to people with Lyme disease. It is free and it does not ask anything from anybody only to spread the word. It gives you the opportunity to help other people if you want to. I can't say enough good words about it.

As a person who has suffered with chronic Lyme for over 4 years, I have found the Michigan Lyme Disease Association a wonderful resource...of information, kindness, empathy, and advocacy. In the initial stages of treatment, I was incredibly fearful and the MLDA, and in particular its President, was kind enough to allay my fears and answer my questions. As part of the Yahoo! group, another active member (Khaya) continually monitors the mail and offers tremendous support to the members.
