Thank goodness for my best friend/soul mate/everything Kristy. I met her almost 5 years ago and luckily she got to spend a few months with me before I got bit and infected by that tick that carried Lyme Disease and many other co-infections.
Over the last 4 years I have gone misdiagnosed and neglected by my country’s medical community. There is NO treatment in Canada for this disease if you have been infected for more than a month, which is why Kristy is constantly running fundraisers in order to afford me treatment in the USA every 3 months.
Last week we painted her green and she paraded the streets of our Nation’s capital in hopes of raising awareness and spreading the word.
This country needs to get bill C-442 passed, meaning it would then be legal to treat the thousands that are suffering and dying from this disease.
On a positive note, I would like to thank my Redbubble family (and my facebook family as well) because of YOU and your generous donations and support, I am able to continue treatment. I truly hope that your generosity and compassion comes back to you karma wise tenfold.
For those who haven’t seen the campaign yet, there is one week left (I have to travel back to the USA in December)
Kristy’s fundraiser can be found here
Thank you everyone for your love, friendship and support
Thank you for keeping me alive and giving me more hope than any girl could dream of♥
