Resident raises awareness of Lyme Disease

In January, doctors diagnosed Tami Carlino, of Algonquin, with Lyme Disease. She had been suffering from night sweats, a stiff neck, numb limbs, facial paralysis and insomnia.

For her treatment, Carlino said she has been taking IV antibiotics and anti-parasitic medication as her treatment.

To help raise awareness of Lyme Disease, and in honor of Lyme Disease Month, on May 2, Carlino and six to seven of her friends and family, wrapped lime-green ribbons around trees in her neighborhood.

Carlino works as a teacher at Holy Family Catholic Academy in Inverness.
