Tammy Gillett is an RN, mother and pet owner who has suffered from Lyme Disease multiple times since 1981 and currently in treatment for chronic Lyme Disease after being misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia 5 years ago. Determined to do something more to help protect her family from tick bites, she handmade sticky mitts and was shocked at how many ticks she found crawling on her family's clothing and her dog Bella. Her invention the Tick Catcher™ finds those elusive, tiny ticks that are so easy to miss when doing a tick check. Tammy wants to share her solution with others, so they can do more to protect their families from suffering from a tick born illness. We happily donate a portion of the sales to Lyme Disease and tick born illness research and education.
Tick borne illness is spreading across our country and around the world.
My invention Tick Catcher, a sticky mitt, finds and traps ticks, thus reducing the risk of tick carried diseases.
I am an RN on a mission to educate others on the seriousness of tick borne illnesses and the importance of searching for ticks, as recommended by the CDC. I personally have suffered with Lyme Disease twice which left me with partial vision loss and color blindness. I am currently being treated for chronic lyme now which is physically, emotionally and financially difficult! I was misdiagnosed with Fibromyalgia FIVE years ago. I created the Tick Catcher, to protect my family and now I am sharing my solution with others. Less tick bites really does decrease your chance of infection. Please see my blog on ways to further protest yourself. We also donate % of the proceeds to Lyme education, research and funds that help people pay for testing.
Lyme disease and other tick carried illnesses are easy to get and hard to treat. It needs to be treated n the first month after infection and even then 25% of those who receive antibiotics aren't completely cured. The tests are inaccurate.
