"I absolutely loved this movie. Was so great to finally see my experience in a film. Kudos to Open Eye Pictures for taking this on and doing such an incredible job of bringing the difficult challenge of living with Lyme Disease to the screen. Get this for your family and friends to increase their awareness of what this illness is like.."
