July and August meetings cancelled

Due to summer holidays and busy schedules we will not be having a Lyme Support Meeting this Sunday July 24th, or next month, Sunday, August 28th.  I have contacted several speakers, but I have not been able to schedule any presenters during the busy summer months.  I do apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

If anyone is in need of immediate support, I am available by phone, or depending on the date, possibly in person. Please email victorialyme@gmail.com to make arrangments.

You are welcome to put forward agenda items for September’s meeting. 

I hope you all have a safe and pleasant summer.

All the best,
Victoria Lyme Awareness and Support Group facilitators

Agenda June 26

There will be a meet and greet support group next Sunday, June 26, from 1-3 pm near the Hillside Mall, Contact victorialyme@gmail.com for directions and parking information.

We would like to invite any new or existing members who might want to meet Maria Boorman and Beverly Seip.  Maria is a Lyme Literate Naturopathic Physician from Victoria.  Maria will be in attendance for approximately 30 minutes to meet new members, or any of those who have not had their Lyme testing done, and may still need to choose a Lyme Literate Naturopathic Doctor (LLND).  Please try to arrive on time if you wish to meet Maria as we are not sure what time she will be at the meeting, and you won't want to miss out.  

Beverly is a Registered Acupuncturist, Certified Laser Therapist and Nutritionist from Young Health in Duncan.  Beverly is also a member of our group, and will be in attendance to meet any members who would like to hear a little bit about some of the services that she offers that may help you with your treatment protocols.

This is also an opportunity for members to meet and greet each other.  We have several new members in our group, and it would be nice if some existing members were in attendance to help answer questions, and to get to know each other.  We are all here to support each other and share our experiences.

If you'd like to bring a healthy snack to share, that would be appreciated. Coffee and tea will be provided.

Please remember not to wear fragrances, as some people are sensitive.  

You are welcome to put forward agenda items for July’s meeting. 

We hope to see you all there.
