Circulating around facebook this morning is the story of a beautiful 6 year old little girl named Emilee from Asheville North Carolina. She passed away after getting a tick bite Memorial Day weekend. They are having two fundraiser events to help the family cover medical expenses. The information can be found on WLOS website below.
We do what we do so others won’t have to go through this. If you havne’t sent in your Lyme Letter yet maybe this story will encourage you to do so. We need to get as many letters as possible to encourage our state to make changes in regards to tick borne infections. Tragedies like Emilee’s can be prevented.
