With a heavy heart, we learned of the loss of our dear friend and past board member, Karen Weber on September 6, 2021. Karen was an active advocate for the National Capital Lyme Disease Association and served with enthusiasm and dedication on its board for over twelve years. Karen was admired and loved by her colleagues. She was devoted to Lyme patients and the cause they represent.
She frequently said that some divine power led her to the Northern Virginia area to play an active role in our legislative passage of the Virginia Lyme Disclosure Act of 2013 and the passage of a similar Maryland bill in 2016. As one of the primary architects of that bill, she helped many victims of tick-borne diseases obtain proper diagnosis and treatment.

According to a recent Associated Press – NORC poll, about one in three Americans say they would not, or probably would not, get the coronavirus vaccine. The question of whether to vaccinate against the COVID-19 virus has been a real dilemma for me as I have suffered from Lyme disease and its neurological complications for over 30 years. During that time, I have taken only one vaccination and unfortunately, it did result in neurological damage to my central nervous system, so I was very fearful of similar repercussions from the COVID vaccine. To make an informed decision as to whether to get a COVID vaccination, I researched and then found numerous studies and articles on the virus. I posted these articles on NatCapLyme’s Facebook given that I wanted to share this information with others as they soon will be faced with making the same decision.
