Take the #LymeDiseaseChallenge to Support Ana Harris

Remember the Ice Bucket Challenge? You know, when all the athletes and celebrities dumped buckets of ice water on themselves to raise funds for ALS research?

Well, there’s a new challenge in town — the Lyme Disease Challenge. And instead of dumping ice water on your head you take a bite out of a lime.

As many of you know, my dear wife Ana has been very sick with Lyme Disease for over two years (coming up on three). We have experienced first-hand how devastating this illness can be.

So we were thrilled to have an opportunity to help raise awareness. Ana felt well enough to make her own #LymeDiseaseChallenge video — and I followed suit a few days later.

We hereby challenge all of you to “take a bite out of lyme” as well!

Took the Lyme Disease Challenge! So many people are suffering. Please share! Or better yet, take the challenge! #LymeDiseaseChallenge #TakeABiteOutofLyme

I just ate an entire lime. Here's the video…#LymeDiseaseChallenge #TakeABiteOutofLymeFACT: Studies show that up to half of all patients with Lyme Disease received false negative results. This delayed diagnosis means they don’t receive needed treatment in a timely manner.
