Logan McCulloch’s Bio
Logan McCulloch contracted Lyme Disease on a camping trip to Mammoth Cave National Park in 2011. One morning he woke up to find more that 20 tiny deer tick nymphs. It became clear he became infected though he was not properly diagnosed until November. With the resources and information provided by the Lyme disease internet community, he found his way to the nearest Lyme Literate Medical Doctor (LLMD) in a neighboring state.
He began intensive treatment that helped him recover “a good part” of his health, though challenges and deficits remained. In response, Logan made a choice that many people might find surprising: to undertake a six-month hike of the Appalachian Trail, in the name of Lyme disease awareness. He began hiking south from Mt. Katadin in July 2013. He sold his home and left his career as an executive at the Red Cross.
During that hike he started the Lyme Warrior Movement, dedicated to Sharing inspirational stories and encouraging collaboration on shared goals and objectives.McCullock says, “I believe deeply in the unlimited nature of human potential.”
