Luke Moore replied:

Thank you Lacrosse Photography :)

I came across this, and re-posted it here: Brandon Lacrosse, is battling Lyme Disease. This is his 15 minute mini-documentary: http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/brandon-lacrosse.html?tab=press http://vimeo.com/23712896

Thank you very much Joseph! Thanks for taking a look and posting up that link.

Luke, You have done a great service by educating us about Lyme Disease. Of course I had heard of it, but had no idea of its effects. I will keep coming back to your site. Keep the faith, man. F/V

Luke Moore replied:

Thank you Anne-Elizabeth! I'm glad you were able learn a little bit more :) Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words.

Luke, this "Ribbon" Series is outstanding work and a great concept with which to raise the overall awareness factor amongst not only the members of FAA but out amongst the general population. Sadly though, my friend you are right in what you say... the Medical Industry and the Insurance Companies are focussed on the business aspect and if a particular disease does not have a "High" enough public profile, then for them there is no money to be made in researching a cure for that disease. The result being that it never receives the funding necessary to find a cure., I am glad that I was in some small way able to promote this Series as best I could..... Blair

Luke Moore replied:

It's amazing how it all actually works and how it is supposed to work ;) The least we can do is raise some more awareness about a couple of diseases. Thank you very much Blair, for your thoughts and your help :)

I know this is near and dear to your heart; I commend and applaud you for continuing to promote awareness of this debilitating disease... it is indeed difficult to share these personal hardships in such a public manner; I admire you so much! f/v

Luke Moore replied:

Thank you B! I hoping I can shed some light on this disease and maybe increase some awareness. I feel it is rewarding to take my experiences and my frustrations, etc. and put them into a piece of artwork. Really appreciate your support and your time/effort with commenting.

Luke, it takes a very strong, courageous and special person to to lay ones personal issues on the table for all to see. You are such a man and I admire you for so doing. The image and in this instance especially the words you have written to accompany it, make this very powerful work. .This is a wonderful and fitting tribute to those who are suffers of Lyme Disease. Like AD this disease does not have a high profile amongst the general public and you are to be commended for doing this to not only pay tribute to those who have fought or are, like you, fighting the disease but to increase public awareness of the disease itself.. My compliments to you Luke..... vote, fav, tweet SU FB and +1

Luke Moore replied:

Absolutely right Blair...Lyme Disease does not get the recognition that it deserves sometimes. It has remained a very controversial disease, which in the end only hurts the patients. On the other hand, I realize that the medical industry and insurance and all of that is just a business like any other business. It's a very awkward and frustrating situation. I really appreciate your effort to think about and write this detailed comment above :) Thank you very much.
