Gifts and donations are indispensable, especially to organizations with a mission as ambitious as Global Lyme Alliance. We are dedicated to accelerating the development of more effective methods of diagnosis and treatment of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases—and leading the search for a cure.
With 476,000 new cases of Lyme disease every year, effective prevention and treatments for Lyme are needed now more than ever. GLA has persevered during the COVID-19 pandemic and continued its life-changing work: GLA has awarded more than $16 million in support of our research programs, funding groundbreaking advances in Lyme research, diagnosis, and treatment to date that have led to unprecedented advances, such as:
Proving the existence of the previously disputed chronic Lyme condition
Decoding the Lyme genome
Discovering how the disease can survive antibiotic therapy
The discovery of the first new drug to treat acute Lyme disease in over 30 years, currently in preclinical trials
And there is still much to be done!
Your year-end, tax-free gift matters. It will make a difference to GLA’s life-enhancing work, and to those suffering from Lyme.
