Cara looks to Germany in a bid to find a Lyme disease cure

0 2 years ago

Athlone’s Cara Hurley will travel to Germany later this month in a bid to find a cure for Lyme disease.


Cara Hurley from Auburn Heights, contracted the bacterial infection while on holiday in Greece in October 2019 and says she the last two years have been “a living hell” with her symptoms being so severe that she was unable to remain in her teaching job.

The career guidance teacher set up a GoFundMe page last week in a desperate bid to raise €20,000 for three weeks of intensive treatment at the Fachklinik clinic with the oncologist, Dr Alexander Herzog in Nidda/Bad Salzhausen, on the outskirts of Frankfurt.

In the space of just two days, the popular Athlone woman had raised over €15,000 and is well on the way to meeting her fundraising target before she flies out to Germany for her treatment on January 22 next. The total now stands at over €17,000.

Cara has developed late-stage chronic Lyme disease, which she says is “not recognised by Irish healthcare providers” and she feels her only hope of finding a cure is to try a treatment called hyperthermia, which kills the bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi, that causes Lyme disease.
