A local barbecue in support of CanLyme was an outstanding success.
The annual event at Fort Floors and Decors brought in a grand total of $2270 to help fight Lyme disease.
"It means the world for me and for the whole cause, there are so many people out there who need help and hopefully this will bring us one step closer," explained Jen Crow, who has Lyme disease.
For eight years, Crow has been battling Lyme disease, along side her mother Shelley. They want to educate and point as many people as possible in the right direction for treatment.
"We decided to do this barbecue, and we just though that if other people have to go through the things that we did, it is way too late as you need treatments right away. We want more people to be informed and the fear would go down and the caution would go up," explained Shelley Crow.
The event has raised over $11,000 through five years.
