Red Shoe Day is an international day of remembrance for those who have lost their lives due to Lyme disease and other invisible illnesses. It is also intended to be a celebration of their lives - and perhaps just give us a moment to pause and appreciate ours.
"Red Shoe Day was established in memory of Australian Lyme (previously ME/CFS diagnosis) Patient, Theda Myint who left this earth on the 25th July 2013. It is envisaged that this day will become an annual remembrance day to remember not only Theda, but all those lost to Lyme and other invisible illnesses worldwide."

We hope that increasing awareness of Lyme borreliosis and associated diseases, including other invisible illnesses will help prevent deaths in the future.
“Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without words, and never stops at all.”
