Three noted Lyme warriors are the focus of GLA’s new Lyme disease awareness ads
GLA's New PSAsErin Walker, wife of six time PGA TOUR winner and 2016 PGA Championship winner Jimmy, and competitive equestrian, highlights the disparity of symptoms and how difficult the disease is to diagnose. Erin notes, “The weird thing with Lyme is that symptoms vary so wildly. This disease affects my husband and me in completely different ways. No wonder mainstream practitioners find it so hard to diagnose.” Jim Miller, professional Mixed Martial Arts and Ultimate Fighting Championship Lightweight Fighter, shares many of the symptoms he experienced pre-diagnosis. Jim explains, “More than a few minutes playing on the floor with my kids, the pain would set in, and I’d start to lock up. Since I was waking up everyday unable to move, I suspected it was rheumatoid arthritis.” Skye Cowie, a 19-year old freestyle soccer player, shares her personal experience of doctor dismissal of her symptoms. Skye shares, “It’s hard to remember a life without pain. Not a day goes by, not a second goes by, when I’m not dealing with the debilitating effects of Lyme disease.” GLA hopes these PSAs will bring attention to Lyme disease and the fact that everyone is at risk.
