Deb Elder has lived an authentic life, often speaking out at injustice.Her purchase of a single family home in West Eugene in 1999 ended a pattern of divorced parents and a broken family for over two decades. By the time at age 30, she had moved over 30 times. In 1992 Deb moved to Eugene Oregon. In the Spring of 1999 she purchased a single family home with her partner. Later, she purchased the partner's interest and continued to make payments on her mortgage. Let's remember that Deb was born with Lyme pathogens, she sustained a Worker Injury as an Auto Mechanic in 1987. Her California lifestyle included her working over her horse much of a decade, chasing cows on local San Luis Obispo CA ranch lands. Deb roached the main of her trusted steed, Tyrel as it was a holdfast for tics which rained on them both as they rode beneath the Central California Oaks, chasing cattle. Later on a camping trip in 2013 mosquitoes bit her in Oregon at Lake Timpanogos Campground where she was injected with the near fatal pathogens which created the cascate of symptoms she experies today. The accumulated pathogens laid her out in bed for 16 months. She faced heart failure and other medical complications. Her mom Frances, passed in 1991 at age 51 to Budd Chiari, a obscure Liver disease with gross medical complications which are yet to be explained other than pathogens. Frances father Harold Elder died of Alzheimer's, her mother of cardiac issues. Thus the genetic transference of pathogens is traced back, it's proven with Dr. Alan MacDonald that Alzheimer's is Lyme Disease pathogens. We know congenital transmissions happen. Deb now owns both of the mortgages on her modest home in Eugene. She lost her job in May 2011, due to undiagnosed and untreated pathogens within her.  Soon a friend tells her, 'you don't have Fibromyalgia', "you've got Lyme Disease" she fell behind on the note. Her Igenex testing proved her friend correct with multiple positive test results. Igenex testing prove it right with the West Coast version of Babesia, Duncani  ... Dr. Harris's offices in California confirmed these findings at great, out of pocket cost. Deb has serious cardiac issues just after a camping trip in 2013 which left her bedridden for the next 16 months. She was hospitalized 6 times that year with no answers from the Oregon medical community at large nor their paid liars the IDSA doctors.  Deb recorded her phone conversation with Conversation between Deb Elder and the Infectious Disease unit at PeaceHealth. August 21, 2014 "PH lady: There’s nobody that I know of in Lane County that currently treats for Lyme Disease. Deb: So, I mean, you guys are the public health medical office for infectious diseases, right? Lady: Correct. Deb: And, so I guess I don’t understand. I have infections, and you are telling me that on Lyme disease, there is no Lady interrupts: Our doctors don’t treat for Lyme disease here …that’s just their choice.  They don’t feel there’s any current treatment for it, so they don’t treat for it. Um, the CDC doesn’t recognize it. I mean there’s other doctors that do have ways they feel that they can treat it, but here it’s not something we want to take on, treating Lyme disease, it’s not something we practice here. Deb: You just said the CDC doesn’t acknowledge Lyme disease. Lady: There’s no diagnosis code for Lyme disease. They recognize it as being conditions or symptoms. That’s how they treat it for Lyme  disease. Try as she might, never did she get well enough to resume work. SSDI was her only means of income. Yet, all this tough chick did was advocate to others about these pathogens, Lyme Disease, treatment with Bee Venom Therapy, and she even attended several national Lyme Disease rallies all over the nation. Deb has been seen in many videos and media pieces on the matter. Well in fact her#2014BVTChallenge enrolled over 70 patients, all improved, most significantly. Upon this Bee Venom success, Deb opened her home to create the first Bee Venom clinic for Oregon! Dozens of folks from other states have traveled to meet with her and to attend her Bee Venom camp, where folks stay with her to get first hand help over a period of days to learn.  Hundreds of people have come to her home, met her, love her good works and have immensely been positively affected. Too, Deb created The Flippin Lyme Foundation as a means under the surveillance of a 5013(c)3 not for profit agency, to promote her good works. She needs a place to teach. So good are her works, River Roofing, a local roofing company who provides a 'free roof' to a community member whose do so much for the good of our community. In 2015 Deb Elder won this amazing award! River Roofing happily applied the roof to her home. That same home now in jeopardy. Chase trying to 'take back' that roof and the rest of the house with it. You see, J P Morgan Chase has elected to hire, Katie Riggs OSB#095861with Aldridge Pite, LLP, 111 SW Columbia St, Ste 950, Portland Oregon 97201.  Casey PenceSenior AssociateAldridge | Pite, LLP, 111 SW Columbia St, Suite 950, Portland, OR 97201 Main Office: (858) 750-7600, Direct Dial: (503) 345-9501Fax: (503)  to represent them in a Foreclosure action against Debie Elder some 16-months ago. It's a very stale case, likely to go to hearing any week now. Also involved: Mark Kaplowitz, Esq., JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.Vice President and Assistant General Counsel, 4 Chase Metrotech Center, 22nd Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11245, (718) 242-3164,  Neither has responded to Deb's attempts to recreate the loan modification documents which were lost and compete that process whereby she can afford to retain her home on her sole income, SSDI.  This after the Making Homes Affordable program documents got lost in the flowerbed, raked over by Deb's chickens to be found mid November. . . Opportunity lost.  Today, Deb and her legal advisors have begged JP Morgan Chase to restore those lost documents. To give her a chance to retain her home of nearly 20-years.  Lane County has no Section 8 HUD housing funding until 2019...Yep, this is a critical situation. Deb can use your voice right now.  Call, write, request: Chase finalize the Loan Modification.Demand local news media outlets cover the story. To be quiet will allow Deb to migrate at age 56 to be living basically in a homeless situation. She has no partner, no children, little family and very few financial resources.  What's needed is a community voice to say no, to this Foreclosure action in Lane County: Case #16CV23785. It's a 16-month stale case and likely to go to trial very soon without interactions to end the process. JP Morgan Chase has to offer and provide new final documents to be signed and end their Foreclosure actions. This is a community resource we cannot afford to lose.  Thank you kindly for you response. You may contact Deb Elder at:The Flippin Lyme FoundationPO Box 40903Eugene OR Deb Elder is fully qualified, after a 2-year process, to have her mortgage amended.The 'NEDCO Making Homes Affordable' program should be allowed to be finalized to allow Ms. Elder to retain her home in an affordable position as is noted in the environmentally damaged and humanly mishandled manner. Chase should recall this Circuit Court of Lane County claim and finalize the Loan Modification documents which were destroyed.That's the right thing to do.

Help Chronic Lyme Disease get recognized as a legitimate medical condition by the CDC

Over a year ago my mother was diagnosed with Lyme disease. At first it wasnt clear. Prior to that she was being misdiagnosed and treated for the vast array of symptoms that Lyme disease causes. Rather than treating the root of the problem (Lyme disease - borrelia burgdorferi), each symptom was treated as its own entity. One day a friend of my mothers’ suggested that my mother might have Lyme disease. She went to a specialist and it was concluded that she had Lyme. In the blink of an eye, my mother was on a plethora of different pills, oils, and creams, hearing a vast spectrum of different opinions; the holistic approach, the strictly medical one, and everything in between. Needless to say, this was driving our once peaceful family apart. There is an entire community of Chronic Lyme sufferers, whose screaming voices are drowned out by skeptics and corrupt officials. The CDC recognizing Chronic Lyme disease as an official medical condition would be a big step in the right direction of providing PROPER care to individuals suffering from Chronic Lyme Disease. To understand more about Chronic Lyme Disease and the controversy that surrounds it, check out the links below! Links: What is Chronic Lyme disease?

Petition to American Red Cross, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Food and Drug Administration, Donald Trump


Lyme Disease is a devastating disease that wreaks havoc on nearly every internal body system. It's often mis-diagnosed leaving many people without knowledge of these organisms living in their bodies. These people may so kindly donate blood because they are unaware of any such disease. The blood collection centers do test for certain diseases like, Hepatitis B, C, West Nile and AIDS. However there are no protocols in place to test the blood donations for the presence of Borrelia Burgdorferi or the 300+ co-infections. According to studies by NIH and the CDC, it is confirmed that Borrelia Burgdorferi can survive being stored in a blood bag. It has also been proven in a laboratory using mice that the Lyme bacteria can successfully be transmitted via transfusion. This is a HUGE PROBLEM!!!!!! Please sign this petition to protect our recipients of blood donations and STOP the spread of Lyme Disease. With this petition we ask three things: 1. Check the entire Nations current blood supply for contamination and dispose of any unsafe supply.  2. Add Lyme testing to the protocol when receiving donated blood.   3. Investigate the CDC, as their Lyme guidelines are seriously outdated.  Borrelia Burdorferi and it's co-infections are blood borne infectious diseases!  This needs immediate attention before one more person becomes infected. There have already been documented cases of Babesia transmission via transfusion back in 2012, however the CDC, nor any other agencies turned their so called concern into change.    Lyme Disease is a world wide Pandemic.

Petition to Donald Trump, Bill Cassidy, Louisiana State House, Ralph Abraham

Treatment, further studies, and insurance coverage for Lyme Disease patients in Louisiana.

Many people are not aware that Lyme Disease is prevalent in Louisiana. Nor, are they aware of the thousands of people that are suffering from late stage Lyme. The disease is often misdiagnosed therefore the patients are often disabled by the time it is found. The disease causes flu like symptoms, facial nerve paralysis, fainting, Lyme carditis, severe headaches and back stiffness, pain and swelling in large joints, memory loss, cognitive impairment, neuropathy, psychiatric disorders, trouble swallowing, and sezuires. The treatment is comparable to chemotherapy meaning you must get worse in order to get better. There are only two Lyme Literate Doctors in Louisiana. The insurance companies may only pay for a month worth of treatment ( a port and iv medication) which does not help late state Lyme. It is truly sad that the state of Louisiana does not recognize this to be an issue. I have had late state Lyme Disease for 4 years now and since I have found that there are many other people in Louisiana with it , paying out of pocket and going broke trying to receive the health that they once had. I've had to quit my job in order to treat for this disease. It affects every person that is involved with the patient. Please help the people in Louisiana suffering with this. It is fatal and our quality of life is horrible , often leaving us to suicidal thoughts. We need to bring awareness to our officials, healthcare providers, and insurance companies. Thank you in advance for the support.
