John Caudwell

Founder & Chairman

John Caudwell, a prominent British entrepreneur and philanthropist, found out in 2015 that fifteen members of his family have Lyme disease as well as a range of co-infections.

John was shocked by the stories he heard from members of the public suffering from Lyme, and vowed to start a new charity to improve awareness and knowledge amongst the general public and the medical profession.

As chairman of Caudwell LymeCo, he spearheads the charity’s awareness raising work by making television and media appearances to tell his story.
