DEAR FRIENDS, we desperately need your help. It
is amazing what people can do when they join for a cause, for a dream.
We firmly believe that God works through people, not only
through His angels.
Read our story, in order to have a better understanding of the situation we are in and to get to know us more.
And, please, help us by donating and sharing our cause wherever you can, including social media, to be able to reach as many people as possible.
We are Nick and Joanne, husband and wife (we are 34 and 35 years old, respectively), #savenickandjoanna on Facebook. At first glance, when seen in pictures or face to face, we may seem just like a normal couple, but we are not. Unfortunately, we are both suffering from an aggressive chronic form of Lyme disease (neuroborreliosis) and multiple coinfections, with a severe immunopathology – a living hell. After losing 99% of the battles we can win this war with that 1% of not letting go and with your HELP which means the world to us. We know that money can be tight, so please know that any donation, as small as it may be, will take us a little closer to our healing which is immensely important for us.
Our last chance to be treated can be materialized at Biologix Center for Optimum Health, from the USA, because we are very rare, chronic and serious cases (https://biologixcenter.com/). After talking with the staff of the clinic, and after Dr Jernigan carefully evaluated our cases, we were told that we are perfectly eligible for the procedures they practice at the clinic. Dr Jernigan, because we are in a delicate condition, recommended us four weeks of therapy. Biologix Center is the only place in the entire world where we can be treated and rebalanced, through the unique therapies they have, like INPT (Induced Native Phage Therapy,
https://biologixcenter.com/our-method/induced-native-phage-therapy-inpt/; https://biologixcenter.com/inpt-phage-therapy/a-new-way-to-deal-with-borrelia-infections/), without developing any severe and dangerous herxheimer reaction, which can be fatal for us, and the extremely aggressive response from our weak and unbalanced body. We are very confident we will be cured there because people in even worse conditions than us were treated and cured at Biologix Center. The medical team from there is specialized in discovering and treating the causes of chronic illness, not only Lyme disease, especially in treating folks that do not respond to conventional allopathic or naturopathic treatments (https://biologixcenter.com/doctors/).
The minimum amount of money we need, in the first phase, for both of us to be treated for 4 weeks at Biologix Center, is $60.000. This is the initial goal!
What will the money raised be used for?
• 40.000 $ (20.000 $ per person) is the cost of the base therapy over 4 weeks at the clinic, plus the supplements and remedies prepared specifically for us, that will be recommended to each of us in the first two weeks, in accordance with our unique necessities.
• 20.000 $ will be spent on the specific supplements and remedies for the next two weeks out of four, which are not included in the base price, the transport by plane round trip for both of us, the visa, the lodging (accommodation) and the food. All of these for 4 weeks of therapy and stay in the USA (Franklin, Tennesse).
Any amount of money that are raised above this initial goal of $60.000 is most welcome. Why? Our Biologix doctors will recommend us an at-home treatment program to continue our healing process. This may include the use of therapeutic devices that will enhance the speed of our healing at home. Also, we will need supplements and remedies prepared specifically for us, that will be recommended and shipped to us at home, to continue our healing process, detox and tissue regeneration, that are totally mandatory after so many years of chronic Lyme, coinfections and high toxicity.
Depending on how we will be progressing and how many issues will still need to be addressed, after the 4 weeks at the clinic and the first 3 months of therapy at home, there is a possibility to be recalled to go to the clinic once more for a last check up and treatment, to sustain and complete the process of rebalancing the body, ( https://biologixcenter.com/the-program/). We will keep you informed about the entire process.
This is our humble plea. God works through people. Thank you for each donation, for each uplifting word that you send us, and for your prayers. It means the world for us. May God bless and reward each and every one of you!
We are two special young people, and because of this, we have suffered a lot, and not only because of the disease. At school, I was bullied because of my voice (I'm a countertenor), and my wife was a victim of racism (she was the only red-haired girl, and because of that she was cruelly offended and discriminated against).
We are two young folks which, in spite of all the inhumane hardships they have lived throughout chronic Lyme disease and coinfections, have chosen to fight with dignity and silently, and stick together even though there were times when no one believed in our chance to survive it all. As we are in an extremely difficult situation, we can no longer stay silent, like we have done until now, so we are forced to be brave, to give you our trust and publicly expose ourselves and ask for your support. Any donation, as small as it may be, will take us a little closer to our healing which is immensely important for us.
We both entered the merciless hell of disease long before we knew each other. We went from doctor to doctor, from a hospital to another, numerous times, we received treatments after treatments, all without a result or improvement. No one could explain exactly what was wrong with us and why nothing worked, they just didn’t find the root cause of our health problems.
Our paths crossed for the first time in 2012, on a medical forum. We personally met in 2013 and we fell in love at first sight, we knew we were soul mates and we took our vows in front of God in 2014, against all odds. We took an extremely bold step, although our situation was dramatic and we were aware that hard times awaited us. The fight would be terrible. We began our journey side by side, with faith and hope, sharing only pain and tears. God stands as our Witness. We supported each other and our love survived it all and conquered all, except for the illness. Only in 2016, extremely late, after over 16 years of illness (in my case), and over 12 years (in my wife's case), we were both diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease, multiple coinfections and heavy metal intoxication, among various other serious issues.
When we were diagnosed, we were sure that we would be in the group of those that heal from Lyme and live a normal life after a year or two of anti-infectious treatments. But we were wrong. We, strangely, were both in the small group of rare chronic forms, and several painful, exhausting years were yet to pass until we would even hope that our healing was even possible. Today we know that and we are asking for your cooperation, to help us bring the healing back in our lives. We deserve it!
Once we realized what monster we are facing, in the next almost 4 years, from February 2016 until the end of 2019, we have been through hell and back together and we have quenched our thirst with tears. We reached for the help of various doctors and therapists and tried to treat ourselves with antimicrobial medication, but each time we would do a cure with anti-infectious agents, our symptoms would worsen in an inhuman way. We have been through all kind of treatments, very complex and potent, and every time we triggered severe herxheimer reactions, which would aggravate our symptoms up to the point where only suicide would seem the only way out. Yes, hell is real, we lived it here on earth, day by day.
Because of the repeated forcing of the body, we felt more and more exhausted both physically, mentally and spiritually. The last two therapists we worked with told us that they had never met cases as rare and serious as us and that a single extra severe herxheimer's reaction could even kill us because of the aggressive immunopathology we were facing (immunopathology = extremely violent storm of proinflammatory cytokines that can be deathly, produced by our aberrant hyperactive immune system, due to Lyme disease, when we consume any antimicrobial drug). Their words fell like lightning, so we didn't do any more treatments since then.
Fortunately, when everything was dim and seemed so hopeless, after desperate cries to God and His Holy Mother, throughout 2020, God helped us find a special clinic in the USA, where we can be successfully treated, even if we are in the abyss and many have given us no chance of healing. We need your help so we can go to Biologix Center for Optimum Health (https://biologixcenter.com/conditions/chronic-lyme-disease/).
Hope for us has not died, with your help we can escape the hell of Lyme disease. We are rare cases, but we can heal completely. We strongly believe there is a reason for which we withstood such a difficult road of Life, both separately and together. We want to win this! Our story must be a successful one not just for us, but for all those unknown people that are dealing with a chronic illness, even one that is unknown, people that have lost their hope and that didn’t have the power or opportunity to find a solution. We wish to be a support for all those people someday. Our desire is to write a book after we complete our recovery, an inspirational and motivational book that will hold our story with all the bad and the good, just to set an example that it is possible to fight inhumanly unfair fights and to win them. After losing 99% of the battles we can win this war with that 1% of not letting go. But for this to happen, we need to get healed first, and we trust deeply that there are many, many generous, loving humans that will not walk away untouched by someone else’s pain, they are the ones that keep the planet alive. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of you that wish to donate or to help us raise the money. It is amazing what people can do when they join for a cause.
