Fight Lyme

Patient Leader

My name is Stacie and I'm 24 years old. I was first diagnosed with Lyme disease when I was 12 years old, re-infected around age 18, and received antibiotics at age 22. By sharing my story, I hope not only to successfully fight Lyme, but to also spread awareness about tick-borne diseases. I started to write about what it's like to live with Lyme and the illnesses that have stemmed from it, but it has become so much more than that. I've since started educating my local community and created the #LymeChat on Twitter. I wanted to help fellow 'Lymies' in whatever ways I could, but they have been the ones who are helping me! By sharing my personal experiences and knowledge I've gained after graduating with a B.S. in Public Health, I hope prevent even one individual from going through what I've been through.
