Carolina Lyme was founded by two Lyme advocates, Dave Tierney and Pam Davis, in 2008.
“Carolina Lyme is provided by individuals whose lives have been affected by Lyme disease. Our mission is to offer information and personal experiences to assist North and South Carolina residents in understanding tick related illnesses. Many patients who contributed to this site have gone through numerous years of being misdiagnosed due to the misconception that Lyme disease is not present in our states. Late and Chronic Lyme are difficult to diagnosis and treat. Patients have often seen numerous doctors, specialists and must travel long distances out-of-state to obtain treatment . It is our goal to show the truth concerning this disease and offer current data to residents and state health care professionals to expose the magnitude of this problem and consequences of outdated testing and treatment options. Your active role is essential to helping patients receive the care and medical treatment they deserve for the treatment of Lyme disease and other tick related illnesses.”
Carolina Lyme have participated in a number of Lyme Awareness Activities including hosting two screenings of North Carolina along with participating in numerous health fairs. We all look forward in seeing what Carolina Lyme has in store for North Carolina.
