Help Us Unmask Tick-Borne Diseases
Most people have heard of Lyme Disease and its potential adverse effects such as infection, arthritis, and life-long nervous system problems. But other very serious tick-borne conditions often go undiagnosed due to a lack of information. Living with any tick-borne condition can be devastating to your health. Your donation can help fund research to discover, demystify, and declaw lesser known tick-borne illnesses.
These other, lesser known diseases include:
- Alpha-gal Syndrome
- Borrelia Mayonii
- Borrelia Miyamotoi
- Bourbon Virus
- Colorado Tick Fever
- Heartland Virus
- Powassan Virus
- Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
- Spotted Fever Group Rickettsioses
- STARI (Southern Tick-Associated Rash Illness)
- Tick-Borne Relapsing Fever, and
TBC United is devoted to helping people with tick-borne diseases — including those with lesser known conditions — to get properly diagnosed and treated, and to regain a better quality of life. We also help to protect people who have not yet contracted a tick-borne illness to stay safe.
We perform our mission by investing in awareness and education, public health research, employee and medical staff training, and patient advocacy that can lead to government policy and public health changes. This requires a dedication to identifying, gathering, and communicating the latest scientific findings and helpful treatment practices. It also demands a commitment to content development, programs, publishing, outreach, and events.
