A nonprofit organization

285 donors

ILC is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 nonprofit. All donations are tax-deductible and all donations directly support the mission of Indiana Lyme Connect.

Our History: The founders of Indiana Lyme Connect, ILC, have experienced the problems of delayed diagnosis and complexities of treatment firsthand as their own families have suffered greatly. Knowing that their experiences were not unique, they worked independently for two years to spread information about Lyme disease in Indiana before combining efforts.

In March of 2014, they established ILC which aims to raise public awareness about Lyme disease, support those with it, and prepare healthcare professionals to address it. Within one year of its conception, ILC became a non-profit organization so all donations are tax-exempt. ILC is exclusively volunteer based and as of 2016, donations are tax-deductible.

Our Mission: We seek to support individuals with Lyme disease and related tick-borne infections–that is Lyme Borreliosis Complex–to educate the greater Indiana community about this often devastating illness, and to encourage healthcare professionals to combat this public-health crisis.

Our Vision: ILC’s vision is to support those with Lyme disease as well as dramatically decrease the number of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illness cases in Indiana as Hoosiers become more informed and practice good prevention strategies and healthcare professionals employ more comprehensive diagnostic techniques and treatment.

Our Work: In service of its overarching mission to raise awareness around and increase knowledge about Lyme disease, Indiana Lyme Connect (ILC) routinely sponsors events and disseminates information aimed at:

  • Supporting Lyme patients, their families and caregivers, and interested citizens through resources and support groups.
  • Educating the greater Indiana community regarding Lyme-centric issues, such as researched-based tick prevention strategies, proper tick removal,
  • Promoting accredited medical educational opportunities to the Indiana medical community that are designed to prepare healthcare professionals to better diagnosis and treat Lyme and other tick-borne infections
  • Influencing government policy and resolutions that will advance awareness and prevention of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses
