    Thank you so much for talking about Lyme Disease. Here in Southern Oregon, we have over 200 members of our support group. This is a big issue in Oregon that is going unnoticed and untreated. Everyone who has spent time in the out of doors or who have outdoor pets need to be concerned. Ticks can carry over 30 different infectious organisms. They are called the sewers of the bug world.
