NEWARK, DELAWARE-The Delaware 87ers today announced LymeAid 4 Kids night, presented by the University of Delaware Coll. of Health Sciences, on Tues., Feb.17 at the Bob Carpenter Center. The national non-profit Lyme Disease Association's LymeAid 4 Kids fund raises monies for families
About LymeAid 4 Kids (LA4K) - The Lyme Disease Association started LA4K fund in 2004 and has helped children all over the U.S. and in Canada. Developed with the help of author Amy Tan, the fund is for children who do not have/receive insurance coverage for Lyme disease treatment for children and have economic difficulties. Donations can be made on-line to LDA help this LA4K fund as there are so many applicants, the fund does run out of money frequently.
The "new" Lyme numbers from Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), an estimated 300,000 Lyme cases annually, only scratch the surface of Lyme's impact. The numbers are really not new but confirmation that Lyme is vastly underreported to CDC by a factor of 10─figures that are probably not inclusive of most people who are clinically diagnosed by their doctor and do not meet strict CDC surveillance criteria─ often used by insurers to deny Lyme treatment. The 300,000 cases bring us closer to actual numbers, valuable to gain attention, but not to conveying real suffering of Lyme patients, especially children.
Lyme Disease Association’s (LDA) new fund, LymeAid 4 Kids (LA4K). The fund will provide monies for families who have no health coverage for their children, so they cannot get diagnosed or treated for Lyme disease. Up to $1,000 per child will be available to be applied for through the physician.
