Mike Nickel watched his healthy son become wheelchair bound with LD. After going through the frustrating process of trying to get him a diagnosis and proper treatment, he founded the Wisconsin Lyme On-line Support Group to help others in 2012. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Wisconsin-LymeSupport/info. He is also a founder and past president of the Wisconsin Lyme Network. http://www.wisconsinlymenetwork.org/.
Alicia Cashman first found out her dog had LD, followed by her husband, and then she came down with full-blown symptoms and a diagnosis. She started running the Madison Lyme Support Group when its predecessor stepped down in 2014. https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com She is also a member of the Lyme Disease Association https://www.lymediseaseassociation.org, and is on the Tick IPM Working Group. https://tickipmwg.wordpress.com.
