Midcoast Lyme Disease Support & Education (MLDSE) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, created and co-founded in 2014 by two Lyme Disease survivors who wanted to forge an easier path to available resources for the people of Midcoast Maine afflicted by Lyme and tick-borne diseases. In five short years, their year-round steadfast commitment to providing free community resources has raised awareness and education and, through their endless amount of support, touched and helped many lives find their way back to wellness, back to the way life in Maine was meant to be. In the Spring of 2016, their efforts were recognized and they were made the Maine partner of the national Lyme Disease Association. Active in Maine's Lyme legislation, they are also members of Maine's CDC Vector-borne Work Group bringing the voice of the patient to the table. 


MLDSE and YouCaring share that common concept, by using a platform that empowers people to help others overcome hardships and enjoy happier, healthier lives.

MLDSE is a 501c3 nonprofit organization so all donations are TAX-FREE and go straight back into the community. Your generous financial gift will stay local and help make a difference in the lives of Midcoast Maine’s Lyme community.
