Our Goal


"This is an exciting day for Canadian science but also for the many people whose lives have been touched by Lyme Disease."

Dr. Melanie Wills, Director, G. Magnotta Lyme Disease Research Lab

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All net proceeds from this event will go directly to the G. Magnotta Foundation for Vector-Borne Diseases which has just announced Canada's first Lyme Disease research lab in a landmark partnership with the University of Guelph. After years of diligent work and fundraising, the Foundation has awarded a $1.4 million grant to this leading life science university to establish the G. Magnotta Lyme Disease Research Lab which will be led by Dr. Melanie Wills. The facility's research project is essential to improving testing and treatment of this devastating disease for all Canadians, many of whom have had to leave the country to get an accurate diagnosis and proper care. Today with Lyme Disease reaching epidemic proportions, this new critical research facility is giving Lyme patients in Canada a sense of hope that change is coming.

To learn more about the new research lab and stay up to date on its latest developments, please visit www.gmagnottaresearch.com.

Transmitted to humans through the bite of infected ticks, Lyme Disease is now found in all Canadian provinces and is expected to grow with the increased speed of tick invasion. One of the top 10 misdiagnosed diseases in the world, this multi-system infection can attack every part of a person's body and cause symptoms that mimic Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, Alzheimer's and Parkinsonism resulting in a prolonged misdiagnosis.

Be Lyme-aware. Play a pivotal role in helping us achieve our goals by supporting our Vaughan Walk for Lyme on September 24, 2017.
