East Bay L.E.A.P.S. Monthly Meetup

  • December 19, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

At our monthly meetings, Lyme patients and their loved ones can meet to discuss the challenges faced in diagnosing, treating, and coping with Lyme disease and other tick-borne illness (including babesiosis, bartonella, and erlychiosis). In general, we do not discuss the political aspects of this controversial disease, but on occasion we take on special projects of political activism.

Come with your knowledge and compassion, a willingness to share your experience, and most importantly, to listen to others. LEAPS is a place where Lyme patients and their supporters can feel accepted in a constructive, nonjudgmental group setting and work toward healing.

Meeting Date: Third Thursday of the month.

Meeting Time: 6:00-8:00 PM

Meeting Location:
Kaiser Hospital-Oakland (Campus Map)
Mosswodd Building, Room 1130A / 1171
3505 Broadway St, Oakland (Google Map)

Parking: Underneath the Mosswood Building or on nearby side streets.  Do NOT give your keys to the valet parking attendants.  Tell them you will be staying late.

Public Transportation: Free Kaiser Shuttle Bus from Oakland BART station to Kaiser Main Hosptial (Shuttle Bus Info).  You'll need to walk a block or two from the Main Hospital Building to the Mosswood Building.  Kaiser campus map here.

    Hi Bob - hope you're better. I went but left about 6:25 because I was the only person - then Carolyn and Megan came later - we were posting each other about it. I'm not aware that anyone else came - but maybe someone did -

    Hi all,

    I would like to come to the LEAPS meeting on Thursday. My IGeneX labs and the CD 57 counts look promising, and I'm going to see a Lyme specialist on Friday.

    However, my mobility is limited, so I would either need help getting to and from the meeting, or would want to call in, if that is possible.

    Please let me know if any of you would be able / willing to help! It would involve driving me to and from the meeting and/or pushing my makeshift wheelchair from the elevators to the room (I weigh 130 pounds). I totally understand if the act of pushing me would induce unpleasant symptoms in people, though – I cannot push myself because I have injuries in my hands. I live in central Berkeley.

    Let me know! Sorry for the last-minute request.

    Best,
    Megan

      Thanks a bunch Carolyn! I really appreciate it. It's actually just a 10 pound office chair that I use like a wheelchair, because I haven't gotten a proper wheelchair yet.
