May is Lyme Disease Awareness month. If you’ve not yet seen it, please view UNDER OUR SKIN. This documentary shows the truth about Lyme disease. See it, recommend it, pass along your copy! You can also view the public service announcements linked to our website. Very informative. And we are still taking Messages of Hope. To submit yours, please contact email@example.com.
Thanks to so many people for your wonderful messages of hope and for your enthusiasm for the LymeBites Messages of Hope video. While we were intending to roll it out today, we’ve had some unforeseen issues arise and will have to delay the launch briefly. Thank you for your patience. In the meantime, if anyone has any messages they would like to add, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org! Thank you.
