     NatCapLyme Board Member Dies from Lyme Disease at 44

    Lexington, KY USA
    By Mac McDonald, BA, MA, CCE
    Editor Lymeblog News

    WASHINGTON, DC – NatCapLyme (National Capital Lyme and Tick-Borne Disease Association) Lucy Miller passed away at home due to complications from Lyme disease on April 12, 2015.


    Miller had been a board member for the past 5 years and was also group leader for the NatCapLyme Blue Ridge, VA chapter.


    “Despite her debilitating illness, it would be hard to find a more passionate, loyal and dedicated Lyme advocate than Lucy and her passing is an incredible loss to our community,” said Monte Skall, NatCapLyme’s executive director.

    Lucy Miller estimated that her life with Lyme and other tick-borne infections began when she was a teenager. Following her diagnosis, Lucy's goal was to attain a level of health at which she was capable of assisting others who suffer from Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. 

    She said she believed that, "Timely and reliable information is absolutely essential for regaining and sustaining health." 

    She also believed that, "The personal exchange of the support group atmosphere is an unmatched resource of help for those living with a chronic illness."

    NatCapLyme has established an annual memorial fund in her name to support initiatives associated with the prevention of and education about Lyme and tick-borne diseases.

    Lucy held a BA in Art History from ...


    Note: In honor of Lucy and her passion for helping others, there will be a memorial tribute as part of the events associated with the 5th Annual Loudoun Lyme 10K/5K/1K Run/Walk on May 17, 2015, at Brambleton Plaza in Loudoun County, Virginia.

     Obituaries: Lyme disease patients mourn passing of well known doctor

    ObituariesSikeston mourns passing of well known doctor
    Southeast Missourian, Sikeston, MO
    Tuesday, June 23, 2009
    By Scott Welton ~ Standard Democrat


    SIKESTON, Mo. -- Family, friends, former patients -- an entire community -- are mourning the loss while celebrating the life of Dr. Ed Masters today.

    Masters, 63, died Sunday at Southeast Missouri Hospital in Cape Girardeau.

    "It's a loss to the world," said Paul Walters of Alton, Ill., a former patient of Masters making the three-hour drive for today's visitation. "He was an amazing person."

    Rusty Newton of Advance, Masters' sister, described Masters as "a renowned and beloved family physician."

    "He loved being a doctor," she said. "Solving complicated medical cases was the challenge he relished most."

    One of the biggest challenges Masters faced was the one he is best remembered for.

    "He spent the better part of his medical career researching, documenting and treating tick-borne diseases and was internationally known for his work with Lyme disease," Newton said.

    "It should be called Masters disease," said Walters, who is among the many treated by Masters for Lyme-like diseases. "Ed Masters is the one who isolated it."

    Doctors from all over the country would refer their patients to Masters advising he was "the one man who could help them," Newton said. "People would call to try to get an appointment to see him and couldn't get in."

    Some managed to track Newton down at her former home in Kansas City and plead with her to ask her brother to schedule an appointment for them. "And he did on many, many occasions," she said.

    Newton recalled how when some patients were too weak to make the drive down here, Masters would drive to ...
