Financial Assistance

Thanks to all-volunteer organizations like the national non-profit Lyme Disease Association (LDA), children who qualify for special programs are able to receive financial assistance to help defray the costs of diagnosis and treatment for Lyme and tick borne diseases.  Contributions to the LDA's Lyme-Aid-4-Kids fund is always appreciated.  Please see the list of grants awarded for children medical care since 2004, which are listed below.
