Cookbook Helps Patients in Need

Aug 01, 2014 03:29PM

Jane Merrifield-Beecher has written The Strong Woman’s Cookbook to support patients that cannot afford medical treatment for chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome, fibromyalgia and Lyme disease.

She was a professional actress for 15 years at theatres in the Southwest, but after years of chronic fatigue, Merrifield-Beecher discovered she had Lyme disease and three co-existing bacteria that go along with it. She is a survivor who started a support group for fibromyalgia and continues to advocate research and funding for treatment and the education of doctors and the public about these mysterious and serious illnesses.

The Strong Woman’s Cookbook contains stories and recipes from women and witticisms about women in the 1890s, and all profit goes to the Lyme Association of Arizona and the Fibromyalgia Support Group of St. Pius.

The Strong Woman’s Cookbook is available at Contact Merrifield-Beecher at [email protected].
