Hi, I'm Sam and I'm grateful my parents could afford to pay for my Lyme Disease and Co-Infection treatments, but I know there can be financial road blocks to getting well. Thankfully my family and our Lyme Warrior friends have created this foundation so we can help other families beat Lyme Disease with financial assistance.
If you'd like to make a donation, use the button below. Thank you for your consideration to our cause in helping others!

Announcing our 2019 Grant Recipients!
As our first year comes to a close, we are are so proud to have an incredible community of generous businesses, organizations and neighbors support the mission of providing financial assistance to those in need!
Thank you to everyone who financially contributed to us during 2019. These recipients are beyond grateful!
Together we WILL make a difference!!
We are beyond grateful for the support of our local Faulkner Subaru of Mechanicsburg dealership selecting us to be the beneficiary of their store's 2019 #SubaruSharetheLove event!
Our business community's financial support allows Sam's Spoons Foundation to provide much needed grants to those in PA who cannot afford the out of pocket expenses incurred due to chronic diseases from a tick bite. Beyond antibiotics, almost all other forms of treatment and therapy are not accepted by insurance companies, leaving many people strapped with debt or unable to pay for their care.
Last year, our first ever year of the foundation, we proudly supported a family with 3 daughters, another young girl and 2 other individuals who needed this financial support to continue with their treatments.
This year, in wake of COVID19 pandemic, we know many more people will need our help. We would not be able to provide these much needed grants without the generous donations from businesses and individuals.
Thank you doesn't seem adequate for this incredible donation of $23,997.00!!!!
Sam's Spoons works with different sponsors to secure permethrin treated socks, which are distributed to children in area schools. If you are interested in sponsoring a specific grade level of a school district, contact us for more information.
From a teacher/parent and daughter:
Lyme disease can ruin your entire summer and your life, so it’s important that we do everything we can to prevent it.
From Sam's Spoons:
I want to provide lots of fun, outdoor activities for my child. I appreciate that the school district also provides those opportunities for her, but I worry constantly about the ticks and Lyme disease.
It gave me peace of mind to know that my child had the tick socks to help protect her.
These socks allowed students to enjoy the wilderness with less worry on the parents’ end!
