Dorothy Leland author of When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: a parents survival guide

Dorothy Kupcha Leland was a published author when in 2005 her daughter became so disabled she was forced to use a wheelchair. At that time, Leland didn’t even know what Lyme disease was, or what a huge controversy it was.

Her new book, When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: A Parent’s Survival Guide, grew out of her experience with Lyme disease activism. Written with psychotherapist Sandra Berenbaum, LCSW, it is geared towards helping families navigate the difficult waters of dealing with Lyme disease and all that it entails.

This book is an incredible resource to any parent of a child with Lyme, and others my find it useful in their Lyme journey as well.

Warmly,

As a regular listener to Lyme Ninja Radio, you will be exposed to many experts in and around the Lyme Community. It’s important to keep tabs on the latest developments in Lyme research and treatment, and it’s also important to cross pollinate these ideas with experts outside of the Lyme community. Many scientific breakthroughs happen unexpectedly. The most famous example is the accidental discovery of penicillin. By including experts from field outside of the Lyme community, I hope to keep our thinking fresh.
