The Story

Lyme is a monster.  It can lurk in the system, mask itself as other symptoms, pains, and possible diagnoses. Lyme takes your energy, disrupts the body, and can cause severe damage to the nervous system.  Unfortunately Lyme Disease can go undetected for years.  Very few doctors are Lyme literate, and fewer know how to properly treat it.  Not all Lyme cases are as simple as a tick bite, rash, and a few weeks of antibiotics...some treatments last years, cost thousands and thousands of dollars, and put lives on hold. 

You all know Natalie as a beautiful, happy, vibrant young woman.  She lives for travel, events with friends, leading as an engineer, and for riding her motorcycle.  Natalie loves the rumble of her Harley...and since the onset of her body pains, fatigue, and sensitivity she has not been able to ride (nor do many other "normal" things).

Natalie is currently undergoing rigorous treatment, and it's very costly.  Not just the medical bills, but time away from work, her loved ones, and her life.  Lyme Disease cannot be allowed to run her life.

We are very fortunate to have support from our friends, family and local community.  We are trying to raise awareness and funds for others in the local and national Lyme networks so that all may have access to testing and treatments.  Please consider donating to her cause, all proceeds from events and donations benefit ILADS, The International Lyme and Associated Disease Society.

Let's rev our engines and make some noise for Natalie.  With help from you, other Lyme organizations, and the Lyme community we can raise awareness and funds.

This year we are hosting a 9-hole golf event at The Lakes at El Segundo, on Sunday December 13th, 2015 starting at 2pm.  We have some great sponsors and will have a post-golf social with live music, food/drinks, and prizes, t-shirts, and MORE (starting approx 4pm on the patio)! 

If you don't ride golf, please attend...the putting green and driving range will be open during the event for kids and non-golfers.  We will be having a golf outfit contest for the teams, and we need judges!

Please see the sign up details in the updates to this page, and on our Facebook Page.
