PopYum founders know firsthand the devastating effects of Lyme disease and are proud to donate profits from every purchase to charitable organizations which help families in need who are affected by Lyme disease.
Lyme disease can mimic the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, MS, ALS, Parkinson's, and many more. The average Lyme patient is misdiagnosed for years and has to see more than 5 doctors before being properly diagnosed. The CDC (conservatively) estimates that there are over 300,000 Lyme disease infections in the USA each year—75,000 of which are children.
Each time you buy PopYum product, you help raise needed funds for what is truly a global epidemic. Families with chronic Lyme disease bear an incredible financial burden. Ongoing Lyme treatments are expensive, extensive and often not covered by insurance. PopYum donates to the LymeLight Foundation which helps families cope with the significant and ongoing financial burden of Lyme treatments. All of PopYum’s donations to LymeLight go directly to families affected by Lyme disease.
Penelope’s story, one published by the LymeLight Foundation, is all too common in the Lyme community. Penelope had Lyme disease from birth and suffered extreme symptoms for years, all while doctors were unable to diagnose this devastating disease. Once diagnosed, Penelope’s mother could not afford treatment since it was not covered by insurance. The LymeLight Foundation, in partnership with PopYum, helps Penelope and many other families.
