 With a special talk and book signing with Ally Hilfiger for her new book ‘Bite Me’ On Friday, September 30, 2016, Heather Hearst, founder of Project Lyme, was joined by top leaders, doctors and scientists from the Lyme community for cocktails and conversation.

Lyme Disease is one of the fastest growing epidemics in the U.S. with over 300,000 cases annually, but it is still a silent epidemic. It’s time to #TalkAboutTicks. “We are extremely grateful to all those who made “An Evening with Project Lyme” such an amazing success—our sponsors, speakers, donors, and friends from the Lyme community all came together for our first event,” said Heather Hearst, founder of Project Lyme. “We are committed to raising awareness far and wide about how important prevention and early detection are to combating Lyme disease."

 Ally Hilfiger, daughter of Tommy Hilfiger, and sufferer of Lyme Disease, has chronicled her struggles with the disease in her new book, Bite Me. She attended, gave a special talk about experiences and hosted a book signing. "Project Lyme will hopefully change the way we prepare and protect ourselves when going outside and bring awareness to the tick born disease. I admire Heather Hearst for her bold and pointed efforts in helping families learn about prevention," said Ally Hilfiger. In addition to Ally and Heather speaking,

Lyme Disease expert, Dr. Steven Phillips, also spoke about the disease, it’s symptoms and what can be done to improve both prevention and early detection. There are currently other organizations focus on funding research, treatments, patient advocacy, and testing – but Project Lyme’s focus in on prevention and early diagnosis. Lyme can begin with a flu-like symptoms, joint pain, headaches, brain fog and sometimes the infamous “bulls-eye” rash, or even facial paralysis. When not detected early it can lead to excruciating pain, heart and neurological disorders, sometimes going on for years.

Prevention and early detection are vital. Nearly 30 years ago, a proper diagnosis and antibiotic treatment saved the life of Project Lyme founder, Heather Hearst. Decades later, the patients she meets and hears about are still fighting a silent battle. Project Lyme is putting a spotlight on Lyme disease and other tickborne illnesses.
