A Lyme Disease project to make a documentary and create a valuable educational resource for all

"Lyme disease remains an illness with many unanswered questions.  Please give us your support to educate, investigate and raise awareness by enabling our documentary and video resource production."

What’s the documentary about?

Lyme disease is a truly debilitating but much misunderstood condition. Difficult to diagnose, tricky to test for but with hundreds of thousands of people contracting Lyme disease every year something needs to be

We will travel across Europe and North America to interview patients and leading medical experts to hear from them and to investigate how they are dealing with Lyme disease on the front line. For some time a small group of Doctors have been using LDN in the treatment of Lyme disease and we will discuss why and what success comes from this.

Further to that we will look at how the disease can be passed and ask why is there not a reliable test for Lyme disease readily available.

We will be making a single film to bring this all together. In addition to this we will publish all interviews, in full, to create possibly the world's largest video resource on Lyme Disease.

Why do we need funding?

The filming has commenced and the initial costs have been met but we need to raise USD28,000 (£22,000) to complete the filming and make it the very best Lyme Disease resource possible. We know how important this is for the future of Lyme Disease awareness and treatment and we want to get the word out there. Whilst many are donating time to make this project a success we still need to raise substantial funds to fully investigate and understand this condition.

Your funding can help us meet the costs of Equipment Hire, Travel & Accommodation, Music Licensing, Marketing and PR, Graphics and Editing Time. The more we raise the better it can be. We are expecting this resource to assist many thousands of people and become internationally respected . Sponsors will gain exposure but all donations of any level are welcome so we can make this a truly valuable project.
