OUR PURPOSE

The purpose of I Love The Way You Lyme is to be a safe place and community for those with Lyme disease. We believe community and connecting with others is essential for someone walking the difficult journey of Lyme disease. It is our mission to not only provide community but to also share and support the work of artists, business owners, musicians, photographers, etc. with Lyme disease, as we believe those who use their pain as a platform and pursue their dreams are the ones who will inspire others who are walking a similar journey to do so as well.

MEET THE FOUNDER

MICHAELA SHERANKO WALZ

Michaela Sheranko Walz, musician known as Fleuke, started sharing her journey with Lyme disease in the fall of 2017 while going through her third type of treatment for the disease and its co-infections. She has been battling the disease since 2008.

 

Shortly after, she began building a community through love the way you lyme.  Since then, she has thrown a handful of benefit shows in Nashville and New England raising money for people’s lyme testing & treatments as well as continued writing songs about her lyme journey.
