Lyme Disease is more complex than what the back of the bug spray can suggests. Spreading at a rate 7 times faster than that of AIDS, it is estimated that as many as 300,000 new cases will be contracted this year alone, but only about 10% of us will be properly diagnosed and treated. That means that man of us could end up with serious illnesses.
May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month. On Sunday, May 16 at 6 pm Central Standard Time, I will be hosting a live radio program with fellow fierce Lyme warrior Jeanne Marie Bain to help spread awareness. We will hear stories from adults, teens, and kids who have been fighting for years to get the right diagnosis, and were surprised to learn that a little tick was responsible for all the chaos in their bodies. They will share insights, humor, and resources they've learned in their fight with Lyme disease and other Tick-borne infections.
If you live in Minneapolis, MN listen on 90.3 FM and in St.Paul, MN on 106.7 FM. If you live anywhere else, you can stream it live online at http://www.kfai.org/ through Windows Media Player or iTunes. If you miss the live broadcast, the episode will be available online after the the broadcast for 2 weeks at http://www.kfai.org/waveproject.
I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to work with Jeanne on this broadcast, and am excited to be able to participate in sharing valuable and meaningful information through the forum of community sponsored radio.
If you have the time or the interest, please tune in and listen to the broadcast. You may learn something new about Lyme Disease, you'll hear meaningful personal stories, and you'll get to hear my radio voice, which I'm told is very nice. ; )
