Pay a Dime for Lyme started as a basketball tournament to raise money to send children to the best Lyme Disease specialist in our country, Dr Jones has treated over 15,000 children from around the world. Dr Jones is our nearest Pediatric Lyme doctor. We are based out of Maine, Dr Jones is in Conn. A long trip, worth every mile traveled. Last year was our first tournament we raised over $3,000 in one day. This year our goal is to raise $4,000 to send four children to Dr Jones. We will send as many as we can, we will pay for the trip. Gas, food and lodging, 500.00 to each family. During the basketball games we educate our fans about Living with Lyme, where to find help, and other support.
Our youngest child we are helping this year just turned 5 and has had Lyme Disease for two years. Thank you for supporting our Lymees! Please make yourself aware of Lyme Disease and the symptoms. DO DAILY TICK CHECKS! It could save your life!
