Quadruplets all have Lyme disease

A family of 10-year-old quadruplets in Kamloops, is dealing with more devastating news about the health of their children.

Two of the boys were diagnosed with Lyme disease earlier this year and now tests show the other boy and girl also have the disease.

Their mother, Deborah Hrychiw, says ever since Isaac and Judah were diagnosed after a holiday in the Shuswap region she wanted to get the expensive testing procedure done for her other two children.

Now her suspicions have been confirmed. with both Rose and Eli testing positive for the disease, although she says Eli's immune system has been able to fight off many of the symptoms.

Hrychiw says Rose will have to start the same intensive treatments that Isaac and Judah are getting at a clinic in Palm Harbor, Fla.

She says the boys are halfway through the treatment, and it's already showing results.
