Episode 324: LymeLight Foundation – an interview with Phyllis Bedford


Phyllis Bedford is the founder of LymeLight Foundation, a not-for-profit whose mission is to provide grants which enable eligible children and young adults with Lyme disease to receive proper treatment and medication as well as to raise awareness about Lyme disease.

Ms. Bedford is a graduate of UC Berkeley with a degree in Political Economics. She uses her God-given talents to help the chronic Lyme disease community and she’s given over $8,000,000 to 1,150 Lyme patients since starting LymeLight.

Ms. Bedford, her husband, and two daughters all have Lyme disease. She’s a congenital Lyme disease advocate and gave a presentation about it at the LymeMind Conference.

As a mother, Ms. Bedford is passionate about helping other parents advocate for their children and she wants all parents to trust their gut and never give up when it comes to their children’s health.
