Lyme spirochetes

For those who have been infected with Lyme we all owe a debt of gratitude to Willy Burgdorfer. His discovery of the spirochete in ticks paved the way for a cause of Lyme and for treatments.

I was talking with Eriksgirl and I was unsure if I would want my name to be associated with a bacteria/pathogen as an honer. She said at least it was not ebola and I was thinking at least it is not Lou Gehrig’s disease. 🙁
