KS - Tick-borne Bourbon Virus new, deadly mystery
Newly discovered tick-borne 'Bourbon Virus' is behind mysterious death of Kansas man
John Seested, 68, was admitted to University of Kansas hospital in June with symptoms similar to those of tick-borne diseases
But tests for known illnesses came back negative shortly before he went into multiple organ failure and died
Researchers from the CDC and University of Kansas discovered the disease was tick borne, dubbing it the Bourbon Virus
No vaccine currently exists for the virus, though researchers say they're working on how to combat it
I DJ'd a 4th of July party at a Bourbon Co. lake once and survived a tick bite; but that was centuries ago.

Wonder if Bourbon will be part of the cure or vaccine? Or at least relax you ahead of the cure or vaccine??!!"If you are lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it."
