Lyme pioneer suc***bs this morning
As I sit here at my computer, I cannot help but wonder when will this
all end? This morning, Lyme disease lost another great warrior, a
wonderful human being, brilliant doctor, who put his reputation on
the line for all with Lyme disease while battling himself with the
devastating illness which forced him from his beloved practice of
medicine a few years ago.
Dr John Drulle, Lyme pioneer, advocate, doctor, patient, father,
husband, board member, friend, we loved you for what you did for the
many out there who could not fight for themselves. You put your
license on the line and fought for all with this disease. You beat
the system when it attacked you, and bounced back many times to
continue that fight, all the while battling something unseen which
would prove to be more insidious than anyone could image.
The Lyme Disease Association salutes you, John Drulle, who with your
wife Dr. Emilia Eiras, founded our association many years ago as Lyme
disease Association of Central Jersey, then New Jersey, now LDA. You
were there at our side in spite of unrelenting hardship.
You were truly an inspiration, and we cry for you and your family.
May you finally rest in peace.
