UPDATE – Help Support New Lyme Documentary Film!

I am proud to announce that there has been great support for the New Lyme disease documentary film “Ticked Off!”

Through your generous donations, we have raised roughly half the financing needed for the first leg of filming to take place June 5-6, 2012 at Clontarf Castle in Dublin, Ireland during the First International Conference on Lyme Disease in Ireland, an event hosted by www.TickTalkIreland.org.

Please continue to support this worthy cause to ensure that sufficient funding is in place to facilitate the shoot. 

The target funding needed to film the 2-day conference is $14,000 USD or $11,000 € (EURO) and we are almost half way there! Thank you! We need YOUR continued help!

Normally funding is already in place for a film of this scope, but the conference was a sudden and pleasant surprise, so funds must be raised quickly to enable the film crew to capture this unique opportunity that is quickly approaching! What better way than to have Lyme patients, physicians, and interested parties from all over the world, contribute to the process?

Become part of a world-changing epic film without ever leaving your home!

Many of us ask “what can I do” when it comes to helping others. Here is a great opportunity to change the landscape of a serious illness on multiple continents.

Since this footage will be used for the film’s trailer, it is a unique opportunity to capture the plight of Lyme patients, as well as to interview top Lyme experts attending the conference. The filmmakers will not only be interviewing Lyme patients and physicians, but will be focusing on a topic that no other film has done to date — the actual conflicts and controversy surrounding Lyme disease, as well as the issues of diagnosis and treatment.

This new film delivers unfettered truths to a worldwide audience in an undeniable story. And more importantly, the film will address where do we go from here!

The public yet unaffected by Lyme disease are in danger of contracting an illness that physicians are not allowed to treat. Awareness is the first step towards understanding.

Please help today to fund what will prove to be a ground-breaking film about Lyme disease by donating any amount to support this worthy cause.

All those donating $30 or more will be listed in the film’s credits. Those who donate $100 or more will receive a free copy of the Lyme book of your choice from my book series “It’s All In Your Head”, or your choice of a copy of God Science or The Fourth Monkey. (Be sure to provide your address!)

  1. I’ve been ill since 2004, diagnosed on 2006. My story is long, complicated, continues to this day. I am an RN. Besides being ill, i have very good medical knowledge re: lyme.

  2. OK thank you Jacki, will forward to the director. I’m sorry you have to deal with Lyme, it is an insidious disease. Do you have a support group near you? PJ Langhoff

  3. My Lyme came to me via Mt. Pilchuck, Snohomish County Washington State. This was in 1985. My best friend and love of my life just divorced me in an awful & ugly fashion. She was the one who pulled the infected tick from my arm after I brought it home from work in late July. This was one year after my graduation from the University of Washington. My story is textbook so….. Now at 52, foggy & exhausted, my memory is severely impaired to the point I am simply embarrassed everywhere I go. The pain, the unrelenting pain that has made me into a wimp just refuses to go away despite good efforts by a few doctors. Nobody is suppose to live like this period. It is torture. Yet, I continue trying to find hope. That is suppose to be the way, correct? Any good doctors near Everett, WA?
