People Who Have Died of Lyme Disease


Michael Cunningham

To Michael Cunningham

who died of Lyme disease on Christmas Eve

December 24, 2001, leaving his loving wife Kim

& four children under seven.

If you have a loved one who has died of a tick-borne illness

and you would like to see them on this page,

you are more than welcome. Please email

Please provide as much information as possible and any page preferences.

This site also links to Memorial Pages made by people's families or friends.

Even, if reading a newspaper, you find an article or Obituary about someone

who has died of a Tick-Borne Illness, please email the contact person so they may be included.

Many but not all of the people on this site have a Tick-Borne Illness

on their death certificate as Cause of Death.

There are, in the Lyme pages, suicides as well.

Dr. Brian Fallon of Columbia University has done a study showing that Lyme disease patients

are much more prone to depression and suicidality than other patients

with similar chronic diseases.

A disease can affect the will to live in the same way it affects joints,

tendons, hearts and eyes. On this basis of reasoning

are Lyme suicides included.

If * is found next to a name,

it means that the link is temporarily down due to site maintenance.
