Free Registration for ILC's Second Annual Fundraiser
Monthly Support Group Meeting
New: Parents Encouraging Parents, PEP, Lyme Support Group

Support the Indiana Lyme Community

Registration is Free to join ILC's second annual fundraiser with the 2018 OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon and 500 Festival 5K on May 5th! This partnership allows you to raise Lyme awareness and funds to support Indiana Lyme Connect while enjoying an Indiana May tradition. You may also donate to one of the ILC teams to help increase Lyme knowledge and recognition in Indiana. Be a presence! Make a difference!


Stop by Indiana Lyme Connect's Support Group meeting Saturday, February 10th from 1:30-3:00. Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library Central Library. 250 N 5th St, Zionsville, IN 46077


Parents Encouraging Parents (PEP) - Lyme Support Group. If you are a parent of a child with Lyme disease, you know full well the unique challenges of parenting these children suffering from pain, isolation, and losses much less the complexities of treatment and medical conditions. Beginning in February, parents of children with Lyme disease can gather to meet other parents of children (under 21 yrs of age) suffering from Lyme. It's informal. There will be no leader. Just a time to meet other parents, encourage one another, and hopefully laugh. After all, laughter is good medicine for the soul! Location: The Fashion Mall at Keystone at the Crossing. Meet in the food court where you can either grab a cup of coffee, a smoothie, or dinner at one of the eateries ( Public Greens and Mimi Blue Meatballs will join Shapiro’s Delicatessen, another locally owned eatery, as well as Chipotle, Freshii, Pinkberry, Noodles & Co. and Which Wich ). Quiet, spacious atmosphere. First PEP gathering on Thursday, February 15th from 7:00-8:15. If you wear an Indiana Lyme Connect bracelet, it will be easier to identify another parent. For more information, contact indianapolis@indianalymeconnect.org

Thank you all for your support

A recent article* about “sleeper cells,” co-authored by researchers at New York Medical College and the CDC, acknowledges something many Lyme researchers have suspected for decades.

Namely, that Borrelia, the bacterium that causes Lyme disease, has well-developed mechanisms of persistence that permit it to survive in its hosts.
