A few years ago, Dorothy Leland and I were discussing the plight of families with Lyme disease, particularly the predicament faced by parents from the time their child’s symptoms begin, through the hurdles they face throughout treatment and beyond. We decided to write a book to help parents at just about every step of the way.

We are very excited to announce that our new book, When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: A Parent’s Survival Guide, is now available from Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle formats.

For additional information and updates on the book, please visit our publisher, Lyme Literate Press.

Lyme Connection (formerly the Ridgefield Lyme Disease Task Force) once again offers an exciting program for patients on Tuesday, May 12th, 2015 at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, CT entitled “Lyme Disease: Why Can’t We Get Better? From Symptoms to Solutions.”

During the day portion of the program from 1-4pm, Drs. Lee Cowden and Eva Sapi will give presentations. The evening portion will begin with the annual Health Fair at 6pm, followed by the Spring Seminar with speaker Dr. Richard Horowitz. A leading Lyme doctor, Dr. Horowitz has, among other accomplishments, written an outstanding book entitled Why Can’t I Get Better: Solving the Mystery of Lyme and Chronic Illness. In addition, Pat Smith, president of the Lyme Disease Association, will be presented with the Courage in Advocacy award — a well-deserved honor for her excellent leadership of over 20 years, tirelessly advocating for the needs of patients. The event is free and open to the public. For more details including directions, please visit the following link: Lyme Connection Conference and Health Fair.
