How you can help end coast artist's Lyme disease pain

NAOMI Robinson has been sick for 13 years, but her family and friends refuse to give up hope.

The Coolum artist has spent about a third of her life battling Chronic Lyme Disease, but in the last two years her health has taken a steep decline.

Despite every attempt at treatment, both conventional and holistic, she suffers constant pain, severe fatigue, digestive disorders and neurological problems.

She has now lost her independence and relies completely on her carer.

A fundraising campaign that started in November last year has so far helped raise more than $17,000 towards sending Naomi to the Y&C Institute of Medical Rehabilitation clinic in Cyprus.

The head doctor at the clinic has had many successes in treating Chronic Lyme-like Disease using various treatments including Ozone, IV nutrients, laser and physiotherapy.

The fundraising goal is $30,000.

Friends of Naomi have organised a sausage sizzle at The Good Guys Kawana on Saturday March 4, 8.30am-2.30pm.

All proceeds raised will go towards Naomi's treatment.

Donations can also be made at the Support 4 Naomi page on Go Fund Me.
