I was honored last year when Say It Forward shared my video regarding my fight against Lyme disease. I am excited to share with each of you what I’ve been pouring my heart and soul into lately. My vision to further raise awareness for Lyme disease has come to life in this Mission To Remission™ logo. There are five hidden elements in this logo that represent what the Lyme community is all about.
FAITH: Complete trust or confidence in someone or something
Our faith carries us through the most difficult days when the pain takes over and prevents us from living life. We lean on each other for support and guidance. We have an unspoken trust within this community that allows us to openly share our painful experiences with strangers throughout the United States and world.
HOPE: A feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen
We share these hardships courageously hoping to make a difference. We want to end the suffering from the devastating results of this disease. We want others after us to be diagnosed in a timely manner to avoid a lifetime of health problems. We want to help our fellow warriors determine their next move in this endless intense game of chess. We want drastic changes made within the medical industry (i.e. disease recognition, accurate testing, updated treatment guidelines, insurance coverage, education expansion).
LOVE: A person or thing that one loves
We have a close-knit bond due to our unconditional love for one another. We believe in each other with the utmost compassion, empathy, and respect. The love within this community reminds us we are not alone in this fight. While we suffer daily, we still manage to motivate, encourage, and inspire others around us. Our love fuels us with strength and determination reminding us to continue putting one foot in front of the other.
MISSION: An important goal or purpose that is accompanied by strong conviction
Even when the ground of our battle slightly calms down, we still thrive forward to raise awareness on a disease that’s far too often misdiagnosed and misunderstood by many. This community fights for our voices to be heard no matter how much pain we endure. While our goal is to accomplish remission, we also understand the significance in educating others around us.
REMISSION: A diminution of the seriousness or intensity of disease or pain; a temporary recovery
We are warriors. We are brave. We are courageous. We are faithful. We are hopeful. We are lovable. We are on a Mission To Remission™! We will not give up! Our voices will be heard, changes will be made and we will overcome this fight!
I am excited to start selling products to help continue the conversation on Lyme disease and raise further awareness. Sending love, strength and healing to all you warriors! 💚Brandi
