Little Falls Woman’s Lyme Disease Went Undiagnosed For Nearly Two Decades

LITTLE FALLS, N.J. – The community is rallying around a Little Falls woman battling Lyme Disease.

At 12, Victoria Romaniello started feeling joint pain that became “excruciating and constant,” by the time she reached high school, according to a GoFundMe page created to raise money for her care.

But it took years for her to be diagnosed with Lyme Disease, and now, 18 years later, she is struggling to pay for treatment – that is not covered by her insurance.

“The disease has been in her body, untreated, for nearly 20 years. This has given the disease time to attack Victoria’s vital organs, including her heart, brain, and kidneys, and do some irreversible damage,” the page states.

“No one should have to suffer like this. All donations will help her get the treatment needed to get her healthy and into remission,” the page states.
