Review for Michigan Lyme Disease Association, Wayne, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I was first diagnosed with Lyme Disease they sent me literature to understand what Lyme is, various treatments, how to protect myself and family in the future. They do educational booths to raise awareness, and work with other agencies in Michigan to determine highly populated areas with ticks and identifying what infections are current in Michigan. This is also important as Michigan is known for its tourism

Review for Michigan Lyme Disease Association, Wayne, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had Lyme Disease about 25 years ago and it went into remission. However it came back about 4-5 years ago. In googling it I found the MLDA and allied. The president directed me to a LLMD (which I had no clue what that meant then). They also sent me a lot of information on LD and answered a lot of questions. I was also given a list of names I could contact for support sand eventually started a support group in my area. I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for the MLDA. They supported me at my lowest points and ow I'm able to give back. They also have an e mail support for those that prefer that way as well as many FB groups on Lyme Disease. It's great getting new info and communicate with someone who understands what I'm going through. I will forever be grateful for this non profit organization

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a member of the MLDA. I was so appreciative of how much I was able to learn from it's members and especially the board members that I joined the board. I have learned more about Lyme and received so much support from everyone involved in this charity. It is non profit and while so many of the individual board members have Lyme Disease and are therefore often sick, they put a lot of effort into helping others and are a wonderful source of support. They are very involved in all research and extremely knowledgeable in the various treatment options. They advocate on behalf of anyone that needs help. They are very involved in trying to keep the publice aware of what parts of the state of Michigan are at highest risk for places where the disease is showing up the highest. This is not to deter people from going to these parts but so they know to make sure they protect themselves if they are going to be outside in those locations. I can't say thank you enough to the board and all volunteers who are there to listen and help in any way possible.

There is no better non profit agency. I have dealt with many over the years and never received the support from it's members or board members. They are full of info that has helped me in more ways than I can count. Very informative and always trying to help doctors learn as well. The money is strictly used for Lyme. Everyone and everything done is through volunteers and the President. Without her and the volunteers I would be lost. They have also helped my family learn about Lyme so they better understand what I am going through.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

There is nothing I would change. I just wish there were more ways I could offer support.
