Second, to highlight useful information for people seeking answers about this complicated illness. Third, to help foster a sense of unity and shared purpose among the many diverse members of the Lyme community. Dorothy Kupcha Leland has a family member with Lyme disease. She is co-leader of a Lyme patients' support group, and is LymeDisease.org's VP for Education and Outreach. She is co-author of a book called When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: A Parent's Survival Guide.
