Friends Who Are Going
Event description


As most of you know, our incredibly strong sister, Haily Quirback, has Lyme Disease. Her Lyme infection wreaked havoc on her immune system and as a result led to a Lupus diagnosis. It has been an uphill battle and although she is back on her feet, her health has been chronically affected since first becoming sick in 2012. The Lyme Disease journey for her like many others with Lyme is ongoing and therefore we want to take this opportunity to raise awareness, educate friends, families and the community and raise funds to support Haily Quirback & fellow Lyme warrior Jeremy Biren. Many treatments, medications and supplements taken by patients are not covered by OHIP or insurance for Lyme Disease and searching for a cure is COSTLY. In addition, we will be making a donation to Lyme out Loud kids Canada Foundation.

We have gathered two incredible speakers including Naturopathic Doctor Carissa Doherty and Chelsea Lye Director of Yoga and Pilates at Toronto Athletic Club who has been recently diagnosed with Lyme disease (see below for links to their bio's). We will also be raffling off incredible prizes. Keep checking this page & our FB page for event and raffle prize updates: https://www.facebook.com/Lyme-Disease-Awareness-other-invisible-illnesses-1428359610809885/

We need your help in making this event a success. Please support us by coming to the event, buying raffle tickets and/or making a donation and please please please share this event with friends and family.

Chelsea Lye Bio-

Mindfulness Meditation with Chelsea

In this 30 minute session Chelsea will provide an overview of the benefits of meditation and mindfulness

practice and take everyone through a guided meditation that she has found very useful throughout her

battle with lyme disease. Participants will be connected with the present moment, learn the notion of

impermanence and leave with another tool in their tool box that can be used for battling chronic illness

or any of life’s daily challenges!


Chelsea is a Certified STOTT Pilates Instructor, Registered Yoga Teacher and Holistic Nutritionist. She

currently teaches at the Toronto Athletic Club where she is the Director of Pilates and Yoga and also

provides in home training in the Halton Hills area. She has been teaching Pilates for over a decade, has

taught abroad in Turkey and in 2016 travelled to India for Yoga Teacher Training. After almost a decade

of bizarre neurological symptoms Chelsea’s health took a downward turn in Spring 2016 and later that

year was diagnosed with late stage lyme disease and co-infections . She has had great success since

starting treatment consisting of conventional and holistic lyme disease treatment as well as mindfulness
