As concerns surrounding Rat Lungworm persist on Maui, we had an opportunity to speak one-on-one with Tricia Mynar, a preschool teacher, who believes she contracted the illness from eating a salad at a Big Island restaurant.

She speaks with Maui Now’s Malika Dudley about the journey she has been on, shares the ups and downs, and answers some of your Facebook questions.

**Maui Now’s Wendy Osher and Nicole Schenfled have been following this story. For more information see the articles listed below.**
