TRUTHCURES® is a momroots organization.
TRUTHCURES was founded by moms who not only have watched our children suffer, but have battled the long-term effects of Lyme disease ourselves. We believe everyone has a right to valid diagnosis, valid treatments, and dignity, above all.
As a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we appreciate your generous support.
"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root."
~Henry David Thoreau
Laura Hovind, CEO & Executive Director
Laura founded TRUTHCURES to fill the need for a Lyme advocacy organization focused on science and activism. She believes victims need hard facts from the historical literature and current research to make truly informed decisions about their health and where to focus their advocacy efforts. Laura has been sick ever since a tick bite she acquired in suburban Chicago in 1995. Despite her health struggles, she managed to earn a second degree and pursue a career in apparel product development, design and merchandising.
Amy Kissinger, Director
Amy has devoted her life and career to service to others. Since 2001 she has served in leadership roles for the Washington County and Morgan County (OH) Boards of Developmental Disabilities. She has been an elected Council Member and a Civil Service Commissioner, and currently serves on the Board of Education in her hometown of Cambridge, OH. She is a founding member of the Cambridge Police Department Citizens Academy Advisory Board and volunteers for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Sick since a tick bite while pregnant, she wants to help others avoid the devastation of Lyme disease.
Kathy Nodolf, Director
While teaching health and physical education for 32 years, Kathy was always passionate about leading and facilitating many support groups and activities. She served in advisory roles in the Student Assistance Program for Drug and Alcohol Abuse, Student Council, National Honor Society, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, as well as coaching many sports. In retirement she has become quite politically active, working in a bipartisan effort to end Citizens United and as a member of her area bipartisan Women’s Network. After losing her son to Lyme disease, Kathy's passion has become advancing the vision and mission of TRUTHCURES.
