NEW! Scribbles Video: HOPE- Bylynnda's Fight Against Lyme Disease

Misdiagnosed at the age of 12, it would be several years later before Bylynnda Turvey would discover what her family had already concluded, she has Lyme Disease.

Now 24, Bylynnda is confined to a wheelchair and in constant pain. Treatment for Lyme Disease is virtually unheard of in Canada, something Bylynnda and others who have the disease would like to see changed. In the meantime, her family struggles to come up with the $50,000 - $100,000 needed for treatment in the U.S.

There was a fundraiser at Cool Hand Luke's in Niagara Falls on April 19th and friends have also taken the "Triple Three" challenge, eating an entire lime in 3 minutes before donating $3 and nominating 3 others to do the same.

T-shirts, wristbands and keychains are also available and donations can be made online or at any Meridian Credit Union.

In this new Scribbles video, we check out the fundraiser at Cool Hand Luke's as well as take a look at the brave souls who gobbled up limes for the cause.
