Kingwood family raises awareness for Lyme disease
"We went to my doctor and he tested (Audrey) for a disease called PANDAS and a test for Lyme disease and it came back negative for PANDAS but positive for Lyme,” Leesa Shanahan, Audrey’s mother, said. “It can be hard to find a doctor that treats Lyme disease; you have to find a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor (LLMD.) We found a local LLMD and we got on waiting list for a couple of other experts when we first started hearing about the Hansa Center.”
