Prevention. Innovation. Recovery.
Thank you for donating to the LDAA, the national peak patient body for Lyme Disease in Australia. We consider every dollar a precious gift, and your contribution may help save the lives of very sick Australians.
Sadly, every Lyme patient’s suffering is compounded by the controversy surrounding the illness. Lyme is caused by a bacteria that our government denies exists in Australia.
It takes an average of ten years, thirteen doctors and usually thousands of dollars, for patients to gain a diagnosis.
By then they are frustrated, confused and very sick. Because of the delay, the illness will be harder to treat. Medicare does not cover Lyme treatment expenses.
All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
What will my donation fund?
The LDAA apportions donations to fund programs to educate, advocate, raise awareness and improve the quality of life for people with Lyme disease across the country. To find out more, visit our What We Do page.
A recurring donation allows us to plan more effectively so your gift goes further.
Can’t give today? Perhaps you’d like to volunteer?
