Lyme and Reason was an excellent, informative documentary that likely opened many eyes and saved many lives when it was aired. I was so pleased that a respected reporter and popular news station was getting the word out! Lyme disease needs to be taken seriously and avoided at all possible costs. One tick bite that is not properly treated can change your life dramatically. Congratulations and thank you for a job well done!
