Lyme Connection Receives Grant to Help Lyme Patients With Medical Bills
Lyme Connection is honored to be the recipients of a $15,000 grant from The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven to assist patients with medical bills. This gift, generously donated in honor of beloved nurse and Lyme patient Betsey White, will be used to assist Connecticut residents in need of financial aid in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases from doctors following the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) guidelines. An application form and guideline are available HERE.
“Honoring and acting on donor intent is an important part of The Community Foundation’s stewardship role,” says Tricia Caldwell, Director of Communications for The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven.
Lyme Connection, together with research partner SmartRevenue and Western Connecticut Health Network, is conducting a survey to improve Lyme disease prevention efforts. The survey does not require individuals to provide personally identifiable information, and all responses are kept strictly confidential. Our goal is to show the serious impact tick-borne diseases are having on residents and demonstrate to state leaders why prevention funding is essential. Residents of all states are invited to participate.
