After son’s bout with Lyme disease, woman invents new tick repellent

It’s been four years now since Darian Wallet suddenly became unable to move his legs without severe pain in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. It lasted for months, forced him to use a walker, and worst of all, doctors couldn’t determine why. In his words: “It was terrible.”

His mother, Lisa Ali, thought it could be juvenile arthritis, but she pushed to get a test for Lyme disease and her suspicions were right: it was the result of a tick bite. Darian’s brother had it too.
