Blood banks still accepting blood from Lyme patients

 . . . a Lyme Disease patient in Arkansas is raising awareness about the fact that she, and other Lyme Disease patients, can still give blood.

According to the CDC, Lyme disease is one of the fastest-growing infectious diseases in the United States. The CDC also reports that Lyme disease can live in blood that is stored for donation.

Even still, patients in Arkansas say they can still donate blood, despite the risk of passing it to others.
