About the Central Mass Lyme Foundation

Central Mass Lyme Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization created to help those battling Lyme disease as well as other tick-borne illnesses. Ken and Michele Miller started the organization in memory of Michele’s Mom, Jeanne Cloutier, who passed away on February 9, 2013 as a result of late-stage Lyme disease. Michele and Ken witnessed first-hand the devastating effects of the disease and their foundation was created to help raise awareness, educate, and provide advocacy so that the general public can be empowered to take back their health.

The Central Mass Lyme Foundation holds monthly meetings, except in December, during which they provide Lyme disease support to any and all who attend. Their mission statement is as follows.

With regard to Lyme and tick-borne diseases, the Central Mass Lyme Foundation will:

  • Raise awareness through advocacy and education, and
  • Provide resources and guidance that empower and help improve the quality of life of those that are suffering.


What Do We Do?

The Central Mass Lyme Foundation is an all-volunteer organization working to raise awareness, educate, teach prevention and provide support. We have monthly meetings with guest speakers on not only how to prevent Lyme disease, but also how to cope with the disease mentally, spiritually and physically.


How Can You Help?

By supporting our various fund-raising efforts, or by making private donations, you make it possible for us to work with Lyme-literate physicians and assist individuals suspected of having Lyme disease obtain proper testing. These funds also make it possible for us to do things such as obtain printed materials for public distribution, purchase and donate Lyme disease related books for our public libraries, purchase and install signs for our local parks and trails, and invite special guest speakers to our monthly meetings. You can also contact us directly to discuss opportunities to volunteer at CentralMassLyme@gmail.com.
