Milwaukee Support Group Meeting Aug. 3rd, 3 to 5 pm



Hello!
The date for the August Lyme support group/healing circle has been changed.  Normally we meet the second Sunday of each month.  However, in August we will be meeting on the FIRST SUNDAY, which is August 3rd.  Same time... 3-5pm, and feel free to come as early as 2:30 for extra support.
The group last month was really dynamic and I can really feel a sense of support and camaraderie.  If you have never joined us, please consider coming as your health allows you.  Walking together on this healing journey is so much nicer than walking alone.  I am thankful for the support the group has given me personally and my greatest hope is that it is providing as much hope, relief, and understanding for others.
In service and friendship,
Falon
PS.  Please email or call if you would like to facilitate or co-facilitate a group or if you have something you'd like to share at one of the meetings. Thanks.

Lyme Awareness Event at the Waukesha County Fair

Wisconsin Lyme Network would like to give a huge thank you to Tasha Ventimiglia for coordinating our Lyme Awareness Event at the Waukesha County Fair on Sunday July 20th. It was a very successful event and we helped many individuals. We would like to extend a thank you to Tasha's sister Molly Nogalski and her wonderful parents Sally and Bob for all their help. The WLN is so grateful to have you on our team. 

Debra Muth gave a presentation that was very informative regarding lyme and coinfections and we are grateful to have her in our corner educating others through awareness and assisting those with Lyme Disease. 

Also, we would like to thank Tasha's Co workers, neighbors and family who attended the event and supported our cause. Here's a few pictures from Sunday's event. 


The WLN is very grateful to have had such generous sponsors at this event. Our sponsors generousity greatly helps support the WLN's mission to raise awareness, provide education, support and promote research for vector borne illness to the patients, medical community and the general population of Wisconsin. It is with their support that we can aide in making necessary change in our state to a growing epidemic that is greatly under recognized. These funds will help us recruit more practitioners to become educated on this complex and misunderstood disease.

Thanks again everyone. Job well done.
