A Blog About Living with Lyme Disease

Lyme Awareness Meeting, Pittsfield, MA

on April 26, 2016
I received this email from the Lyme Alliance of the Berkshires :
Lyme Awareness Meeting:
1:30 to 4:30 PM
Berkshire Athenaeum
Ground Floor Auditorium
1 Wendell Avenue
Pittsfield, MA 01201
Guest Speaker: Allie Cashel Author of “Suffering the Silence: Chronic Lyme Disease in an Age of Denial”
A 2013 graduate of Bard College’s Written Arts Department, Allie Cashel is a first-time author. Her book began as her senior thesis project at Bard College and was developed into a full-length memoir which details her own experience, and also shares the stories of a number of other chronic Lyme patients from around the world, acting as a living portrait of the disease and its patients’ struggles for recognition and treatment. She is a passionate advocate for increased awareness and Lyme treatment reform. Meeting will begin with Allie speaking about her story, reading from her book and will be followed by open discussion.
