Canadian protocols are forcing one family out of the country, Three year old Noah Lambert was infected with Lyme disease at one year of age, left undiagnosed for two years the disease is now chronic, affecting his skin, joints, liver, kidneys, brain and heart.
Doctor, Ernie Murakami of Hope BC, says this is not uncommon for Lyme disease patients, unfortunately many people go without treatment due to lack of medical support in Canada, also unreal cost of medications ranging from 100,000-250,000 per year. Doctor Murakami has offered help and support to the Lambert family, getting them in contact with a llmd (Lyme literate medical doctor) Doctor Maureen McShane, in Plattsburgh New York.
Doctor McShane says with the condition Noah Lambert is in, the need of medication is a must, stating the Lyme Bactria has made it’s way into his heart causing a minor heart attack in the three year old child. With no Canadian doctors willing to treat outside the CDC protocol, which states only 28 days of medications are needed to treat Lyme Disease. The Lambert family are forced to take Noah outside the country to Doctor McShane for treatment or to pick up any medications.
“It’s crazy my son is fighting for his life, while we have to fight to find help for him” says Noah’s mother, after seeing eighteen doctors who all could not offer help or refused the diagnoses. “They diagnosed him with fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome, but refused to take the blood results that showed he was infected with Lyme disease, how could you leave a child become that sick and do nothing” says Noah’s mother, the family has raised 7,000$ in donations, not even making a dent in the yearly cost of treatment. Doctor McShane has recommended a herb supplement, until funds can be raised to start back on treatments, donations can be made to www.gofundme.com/fightinglyme , you can also follow Noah’s story at www.facebook.com/noahsark.journey .
