Cast a vote to help save Rose


The mother of Rose Schwarz is once again asking for the community’s help to save her daughter, this time through casting a vote for Rose at

Tani Schwarz said her 27-year-old daughter is still suffering from the effects of Lyme disease, despite the family’s belief it was cured via stem cell treatment therapy in Mexico in 2014.

“A few months after returning from that second trip to Mexico, Rose was retested by Igenex labs. The result was negative and we were hopeful that the worst was over and she would now start feeling better,” Tani said.

“Unfortunately that was not the case and I have since learned that false negatives are very common in serum Lyme tests because of the spirochetes’ ability to hide in organs and tissues and so no antibodies show up in the blood.”

Over the last year and a half Rose’s health has continued to decline.

“Not only is Rose’s physical health continuing to worsen, but her mental health has become affected as well. She is suffering severe anxiety, depression and memory loss,” Tani said.

“She has lost interest in everything she used to enjoy like drawing, reading, crafts, video games. She can’t even focus long enough to watch a TV show. Her personality has completely changed these past six months and she knows it. She says she feels like ‘Rose is gone.’ It is so sad to watch my daughter fade away and not even know how to relate to her anymore because she is no longer the same person.”

Tani’s now pinning her hopes for a cure for Rose on a new form of therapy – BX Protocol.

The therapy claims to restore cell function and is being pitched as a possible cure for everything from Lyme disease to cancer.

Tani noted the BX Protocol treatment is costly so she was thrilled to find a contest that, based on votes and a submitted essay, offered the winner a year’s worth of treatment valued at $16,995.

“This contest has given us hope again that there may be a future for Rose,” Tani said.

She asks the public to vote for #18 Rose S. via to help improve their chances of winning.
