Important Announcement

We’re Ticked Off and We’ve Done Something About It!

The Waite-Kane Foundation has disbanded its’ organization and teamed up with the Howard Young Foundation and The Tick-Borne Illness Center at Howard Young Hospital in Woodruff, Wisconsin. 


  • In 2010-2011 the CDC research logged confirmed cases (rash) and probable cases (clinical diagnosis) leading to the conclusion in 2012 that the number of actual cases of Lyme disease is 10-12 times the number reported. 
  • Because Wisconsin is #1 in the upper mid-west for number of cases of Lyme disease and 4th in nation through the help of The Howard Young Foundation THE TICK-BORNE ILLNESS CENTER of EXCELLENCE at Howard Young Hospital in Woodruff, WI exists. The Tick Center opened its’ door to the first patient on September 24, 2019. 
  • The Tick Center is a place where people can come to get properly diagnosed and treated for Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses. The Tick Center is a leader in practicing medicine in the era of big data offering clinical services in the following areas: Tick Borne Illness, General Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases, Diet and Nutrition Consultation and Immunology

The Waite Kane Foundation is thankful to all the people who have contributed to our efforts to raise awareness about Lyme disease in memory of our daughter, sister, mom and wife Jenn Waite-Kane. Jenn lost her 12-year battle with Lyme disease at the age of 42 leaving a world that is different and more educated about Tick-borne illnesses because she lived.
