Nicole Malachowski |

This is episode 9 of the Love, Hope, Lyme podcast.

When Fred Diamond decided to learn more about the Lyme disease that afflicted someone he loved, his life changed.

His popular book, "Love, Hope, Lyme: What Family Members, Partners, and Friends Who Love a Chronic Lyme Survivor Need to Know" offers those who love someone with persistent or chronic Lyme ideas and tips to support this beloved person. It also helps Lyme survivors know how to ask for support.

The e-version of the book is always free for Lyme survivors. Just reach out to Fred on Facebook or LinkedIn. The print copy can be ordered here.

On today’s podcast, Fred interviews Nicole Malachowski, former Air Force jet pilot and combat veteran, whose career was cut off when she contracted 5 tick-borne illnesses including Lyme disease.

When Fred wanted to learn more about Lyme disease, he was shocked to find how many Lyme survivors could no longer work, due to the physical and mental challenges the disease brought on. Nicole was at the highest level of her career as one of only 75 female jet pilots. Her career ended when the disease took over her life.

However, she has taken these lessons to the stage and has become a global speaker on getting past adversity. Her empathy with other chronic Lyme survivors makes her a critical role model for Lyme survivors trying to get their careers and lives to where they want them to be.

Listen to her insights on how to grow while managing and treating this disease.
