Spreading Awareness

I feel like I've been M.I.A. from SpiroChicks lately. If you ask my husband he would probably tell you I've been M.I.A. from everything in life except Lyme disease awareness.

I have been working on the Paint May Lyme Green campaign obsessively for the past two months. It's been a CRAZY ride and I never expected it to lead to where it has.

I am in Los Angeles for the second time in a month, unheard of for me. I feel like I live on my brother's couch, luckily it is a comfy one!!!

Anyway, I can believe how successful the PSA campaign has become. On Thursday April 29th I found myself in a 4,000 sq foot studio with a full production crew and seven celebrities all there to help spread awareness by making Lyme disease public service announcements for the web and television! AMAZING!!!

We filmed 18 PSAs! We aren't done yet either! We won't have the studio or the full crew, but we are going to film a few more PSAs and interviews with more stars later this week.

I am so thankful to everyone who has donated to this project. We are making big strides for awareness this May.



Check out all the PSAs we have posted so far on
Lymenaide's YouTube Channel.

Please share & re-post the PSAs to spread awareness. Also check out Lymenaide to read more about what we've been up to and to meet the celebrities who are lending their voices to help spread Lyme disease awareness.

DONATE to the project. The PSA project is only possible because of donations. This is a grassroots effort for the Lyme community, by the Lyme community. Together we are making a difference!

The PSAs are so professional! This is going to be so great for our community. If they are aired, they will create more of a buzz than Under Our Skin! Go Ashley!!!!!

Thank you for your hard work to spread awareness, Ashley. I was diagnosed with chronic lyme about 2 month ago & stumbled across your blogs when I began my research. It has been so helpful to learn from those who are already on this journey and I appreciate all you are doing!
