    Weʼve raised £3,415 to help Katerina for Urgent Treatment in fighting Chronic Lyme Disease!

    Wirral, United Kingdom

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    For a number of years Katerina Diakou, 17 years, has been poorly with Chronic Lyme Disease and this page is designed to raise awareness and generate the much needed funds which Katerina desperately requires for her treatment.

    Chronic Lyme disease is a bacterial illness from the spread of Borrelia burgdorferi in tick insect bites. This debilitating condition at present has no cure and we desperately need your help for new treatment for our Katerina.

    There is an unpublicised epidemic of people living with Lyme Disease in this country; and there is currently no treatment readily available on the National Health Service to help those who are suffering. The struggle is real. Therefore many patients have to go privately to seek answers.

    Katerina suffers from fevers, swollen lymph nodes, chronic fatigue, chronic muscular pain and lethargy. Neurological effects include constant migraines, memory problems, difficulty concentrating and sensitivity to light. Furthermore in Katerina’s case the disease has also attacked her vital organs such as the heart and she has developed Carditis (inflammation of the heart) which has caused her to have Tachycardia (Heart rate exceeds normal resting rate) and sadly specialists have found a leak in her mitral valve all caused from this devastating disease.

    The family have spent thousands and thousands of pounds traveling the world seeking answers from an abundance of specialists in experimenting with various treatments, countless supplements, medication and specific diets. The last few years have been full of sacrifices, sleepless nights, tears, heartache and desperation in the Diakou family.

    On Saturday 9th September 2017 Pete Roti is attempting ‘Tough Mudder’ (10-12 miles, 20+ obstacles in the mud) at Cholmondeley Castle, Cheshire in the hope to raise awareness and needed funds for Katerina's treatment of this debilitating disease.

    So please donate as much as you can!

      (cont.)...This is not my first attempt at treating my disease but I'm hoping this will be the answer. It is not easy but I'm taking it day by day. My family and I want to thank Pete Roti so much for surprising me with the generous offer of raising money to help me with my treatment and chosen to support me. Now this is my turn to help and support him during his Tough Mudder run which he is completing on Saturday 9th September 2017!

      Message from Katerina Diakou: This is an update. I am on my 3rd week of my new intensive treatment in Cyprus which I'm hoping will help control my symptoms which effects me on a daily basis as there is no cure to my disease. People aren't aware of the effects this one disease can have on a person, so I just wanted to raise awareness as I have been suffering in silence for several years. This disease doesn't just effect me it also effects my sisters and my parents who have helped and supported me throughout my entire journey...
