Kelley Flanagan and IGeneX team up for Lyme disease awareness
Kelley Flanagan rose to national fame in 2020, as a cast member on season 24 of the TV show “The Bachelor.”
In September 2021, the celebrity revealed she was undergoing “intense” treatment for Lyme disease.
Now, Flanagan has teamed up with IGeneX, Inc., a leading testing laboratory, to draw attention to Lyme and other tick-borne diseases–and encourage people to get tested.
According to a press release, the partnership arose organically, following Kelley’s Lyme disease diagnoses through IGeneX testing in 2021.
The two have joined forces leading up to Lyme Awareness Month to call attention to “a critical second pandemic”–that of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.
After experiencing years of mystery symptoms, and feeling “that my body is super sensitive and I’ve always known something was a little bit off,” Kelley underwent a series of intensive tests, and discovered she was suffering from Lyme disease and several co-infections in August of 2021.
Kelley has shared her struggles with her community of fans in hopes of inspiring others to seek answers for their own mystery symptoms.
“We are thrilled that IGeneX could provide Kelley the answers to her pain, and we are grateful for her friendship in helping us educate the general public of tick-borne disease, and the IGeneX advantage” said Jyotsna Shah, Ph.D., President and Laboratory Director of IGeneX.
“We are confident that together we can truly impress the necessity of testing on individuals, and hopefully, help a great deal of people on their healing journey.”
