Sufferers of chronic Lyme disease gather in West Tisbury to “Bite Back for a Cure”

Individuals who claim to suffer from chronic Lyme disease shared their stories of anguish and illness at the Grange Hall in West Tisbury last Sunday night, August 18, as part of a day-long event hosted by The Lyme Center of Martha’s Vineyard (LCMV) in conjunction with  “Bite Back for a Cure,” a national campaign sponsored by the Tick-Borne Disease Alliance (TBDA), to raise funds for the LCMV and to raise awareness of tick-borne diseases.

“Six years ago, my husband and I moved to Martha’s Vineyard from New York City,” said Enid Haller, who organized the event with Roni DeLuz. “Little did we know how much our lives were about to change. When you lose your health, it’s the death of a life you used to know.”
