Health Check: Raising Awareness about Tick-Borne Diseases, was reported by Barbara Morse Silva.

Interviewed were two local sisters, Mary Lorusso-DiBara and Darlene DiBara O’Connor who have struggled for years with symptoms of Lyme and co-infections, as well as with finding proper diagnosis. With treatment, both have felt enormous relief of symptoms, but must remain under medical care. The sisters advocate for more research and more doctors who are willing to treat chronic symptoms. In the interview, they stressed that there are many symptoms associated with tick-borne diseases, and the symptom list is as long as the problem is big.

“Real change is going to happen with doctors and other scientists talking with one another.”   Lorusso-DiBara
