Mayday 2016

For the first time, I was able to go to the Mayday event held in Washington, D.C. yesterday!

The Mayday project has been going on for several years now and rallies Lyme patients together in order to protest the IDSA.

According to themaydayproject.org:

The Mayday Project was formed by a group of volunteers who have been touched by Lyme disease. Mayday advocates for accurate tests, better guidelines, improved access to treatment, more education for physicians, and increased funding for research.

My mom, my best friend and I traveled to D.C. yesterday to attend the Science Forum (more on that in another post). In the evening, the Mayday project held a vigil for all the lives that have been lost to Lyme disease.

Here are a few pictures…
