Responding to the growing needs of Lyme patients in Loudoun County, the National Capital Lyme and Tick-Borne Disease Association www.natcaplyme.org has established a patient/caregiver support and education group in Loudoun County. The group is open to all who suffer from this disease and to those who play supportive roles in their lives. The meetings will be held in downtown Leesburg at the Cornwall location of the Loudoun Hospital on the last Sunday of the month from 3-5pm.
Earlier this year the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors made this statement, “Loudoun County has been called one of the most active Lyme epidemic areas of the country.” This chapter is something Loudoun is in great need of and will serve the entire county.
Carol DuPuis, a native of Virginia, will facilitate the group meetings. Carol’s teenage daughter is being treated for Lyme disease after a five-year struggle with the disease and co-infections. Carol has met many people afflicted with this disease and is inspired to help others gain a better understanding of tick-borne diseases and provide them an opportunity to meet others.
Please contact Carol DuPuis at email@example.com with any questions.
