May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month and all are invited to attend a free presentation: A Wisconsin Family’s Lyme Journey: A Case For Hope. Laurel Kashinn is a local writer and mother seeking to share her and her family’s experience with Lyme disease following their daughter’s successful treatment. Besides her family’s story, she includes in her presentation:
+ Facts about ticks and the many diseases they can carry
+ Finding peace in the war zone over Lyme disease; how not to become a casualty
+ Resources and natural solutions: how to connect with wellbeing and stay healthy
She will present her story at Cedarburg Public Library, Wednesday, May 8, Noon-1 pm, Facebook live and Zoom online on Wednesday, May 15 at noon, and at the USS Liberty Memorial Grafton Public Library, Wednesday, May 22, from Noon-1 pm.
After navigating the healthcare system, doing extensive research, and helping her daughter who became so sick she was bedridden and had to be homeschooled for the 8th grade, Kashinn has become a wellness advocate, and seeks to share what she has learned. Hers is a message of hope and empowerment.
