Tick Boot Camp’s guest today is Jenna Luché-Thayer. Ms. Luché-Thayer is the 59-year-old founder and director of the Ad Hoc Committee for Health Equity in ICD11 Borreliosis Codes, and she’s from Florida. She first experienced the symptoms of a tick disease in 1976, when she was just 16 years old. She had a fever, extreme fatigue, joint pain, and Bell’s palsy. Her illness came and went, but it took over 35 years for Ms. Luché-Thayer to receive a Lyme diagnosis. This expert brilliantly details what it is like to be a woman on the Lyme journey. If you would like to learn more about the amazing work that Ms. Luché-Thayer has done to give back to the Lyme community since her diagnosis, then tune in now!

The purpose of Tick Boot Camp is to help you liberate yourself and others from suffering caused by Lyme disease.
