Many Old La Honda Road resident's in Woodside have Lyme disease at various stages. Please attend the "Lyme Disease Awareness Night" 7 pm Wed March 4th at Ladera Community Church.

A couple of years ago, my 30-something cousin was diagnosed with MS. More than a year later, she was in a wheelchair, unable to work, struggling to care for her children, when she discovered that she had misdiagnosed Lyme disease, not MS.
She's out of the wheelchair and doing much better now, but she couldn't convince her insurance company to authorize treatment for Lyme disease -- she had to pay for it herself, and even after treatments proved successful, the insurance company still denied that she had Lyme disease!

We appreciate the communication and the meeting -- a much needed event--and will be sure to share these details with all friends and loved ones as well as our dental patients.
Regarding the comment about the insurance co. not cooperating--- with the re-vamping of how insurances will be required to perform, our hopes will be to have science and the health of our citizens at the top of the order for our New Administration in Washington. From preventative medicine to treatments for such illnesses as this.
