This past July while Caitlin was showering she discovered two tiny bumps on her skin and she quickly realized that they were ticks that were buried under her skin. A week later Caitlin came down with flu like symptoms and so her doctor gave her 4 weeks worth of antibiotics. While taking the antibiotics Caitlin felt a little bit better however as soon as the course was complete all of her symptoms came back and were worse. One day while driving her vision became blurry and she felt disoriented and that is when she knew something was seriously wrong.
To make a long story short, Caitlin went to multiple doctors and ended up having to go out of state to PA to get a proper Lyme test and more antibiotics. Unfortunately this time Caitlin did not get any relief from the antibiotics and continued to experience more symptoms. Caitlin remained positive and started searching for alternative ways to treat Lyme Disease and tried things that others with Lyme recommended. However, these natural remedies did not provide any relief either.
Caitlin now suffers from Late Stage/Chronic Lyme Disease which means it is affecting her neurologically (short term memory loss, muscle twitching, numbness in her feet, severe headaches, blurry vision, etc.). Once the Lyme bacteria penetrate into the brain it is more difficult to treat.
Caitlin continued to keep her faith and continued to search for answers and then discovered a doctor in FL that successful treats patients with Late Stage Lyme Disease. This doctor, Dr. Crozier restores the body by focusing on getting toxins out and nutrients in. His treatment is focused on enhancing the natural kill power of the Lyme patient’s immune system, by first enhancing the patient’s Brain Function, and then, enhancing the functional activity of every other system in the body. When a patient with Lyme Disease is not recovering like a typically person would, there is always other things that play into the picture. For example, some patients that are not getting well also suffer from co-infections, mold exposure, and have a genetic mutation. Having the genetic mutation means their body is unable to detoxify from the neurotoxins that Lyme produce and their bodies are unable to produce antibodies for their body to fight off the infection.
For Caitlin to get proper treatment requires her to live in Florida during treatment which will be about 6-8 weeks. While she does have health insurance, it doesn’t cover her treatment (Dr Crozier is an “Out of Network” provider and Health Insurance Company’s typically only cover 4 weeks of antibiotics), also a mold free hotel to stay at, and all the medications and supplements she will need to get better. The last 6 months Caitlin has not been well enough to work so bills have begun to pile up.
We, her family, are asking for your help. Please help us raise $15,000 so she can be healed and we can have the Caitlin that we all love back!
