"I knew two things about Lyme disease, flu-like symptoms and a rash."
- Marie Benedetto, Mother/Patient/Legislative Advocate
Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector borne disease in the US with over 300,000 new cases reported each year. Recognizing the symptoms is our first line of defense.
This 40 minute documentary details the complex list of symptoms taken directly from the people living with the disease and highlights current treatment protocols along with simple things we can all do to try and maintain a normal life until we find a cure.
Filmed over a two year period and travelling coast to coast, these interviews reflect the devastating effect of Lyme disease on people's lives as well as their hopes for ultimately regaining true health. Detailing the reality of tests that don't work, the lack of training of our medical professionals and politics reminiscent of the battle over AIDS that is centered once again, on a public health system that has failed to protect us.
"For every year that passes before that consciousness dawns, we have hundreds of thousands of people suffering without a diagnosis and without a treatment and to me that's simply a travesty." - Neil Nathan MD
Featuring Joseph Burrascano,Jr., MD, one of the world's leading experts on diagnosing and treating Lyme disease along with a host of practitioners that strive to find solutions for a rapidly growing number of patients seeking answers.
Anyone living with Lyme disease would agree, if we can prevent even one person from becoming infected through watching this film it will have been well worth the effort that it took to create.
We need to be informed.
We need to protect our families
and the people we love.
