Lyme Support Group

243 King St. Suite 248 Northampton MA 01060


Next Meeting: May 13th 2017
1PM-3PM

Join us for a special free workshop:
Vision-Writing for Rockstars with Health Challenges
Facilitator - Noelle Janka


Noelle will support participants in getting clear on what's most important to them and will walk them through the process of writing a vision statement.

Having a vision statement can bring ease and grace to your healing by helping you to focus your energy, make decisions more easily, enroll the support of others, and do more of what you love while you're healing, even if it means doing it in a different way from what you're used to.

More on why everyone with a health challenge should have a vision statement:

"It is a time to meet others who may share your concerns or experiences with Lyme disease, and to help break the cycle of loneliness and silence which often times surrounds Lyme disease.  You do not have Lyme but perhaps you are a caregiver to someone with the disease, or you are just interested in learning about this disease, all are welcome to attend."

Central Mass Lyme Foundation

"...is a non-profit organization created to help those battling Lyme disease as well as other tick-borne illnesses. Ken and Michele Miller started the organization in memory of Michele's Mom, Jeanne Cloutier, who passed away in February, 2013 as a result of late-stage Lyme Disease. Michele and Ken witnessed first-hand the devastating effects of the disease and recognized that something had to be done. Their foundation was created to help raise awareness and educate people about the disease, teach prevention and provide support to the local community."
