By working together we can increase awareness, support education and promote prevention of Lyme Disease and other tick-borne illness.
The Lyme Support Network is a non-profit service organization dedicated to making a difference by building awareness of Lyme Disease within our community. Our primary goal is to serve as a support group for people with Lyme Disease and / or other tick-borne diseases. Our work also includes education and advocacy to promote knowledge and understanding of Lyme Disease among the general public, government agencies and within the medical community.
Monthly Support Group Meetings
Our regular monthly support group meetings are scheduled on the first Wednesday of each month and are held at Trinity Lutheran Church, 25519 W Hwy 134, Ingleside, IL 60041. Trinity is located near the Long Lake Metra Station (Milwaukee District North Line to Fox Lake), so if you would like to come by train please contact us, we can provide rides to/from the Long Lake station.
Thanks to our sponsors, participants & volunteers
for making our Lyme Disease Awareness Walk
a wonderful success!
Our 6th Annual Lyme Awareness Walk and Fair, held September 21, 2014 in Barrington's beautiful
Citizens Park, was a wonderful success with nearly 400 attendees. Glorious sunshine broke through just before we started walking. Live music by the Dianna Jones Trio had children dancing and everyone tapping their toes. The Meatheads burgers and fixin's were tasty. With the vendors, raffles, kids activities, massage, and information on tick-borne illnesses, there really was something for everyone. Adding to all those activities, we were honored to be joined by four physicians who focus on Lyme disease from Northern Illinois, Southeast Wisconsin and Northwest Indiana. We also appreciated the attendance and support of Barrington Village Board President Karen Darch and Lake Country Board Member Nick Sauer.
See a great article & photos from the event at Living60010, and more photos at What Is Lyme.
A special thanks to our sponsors, including the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine
and Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital.
