Celebrities You Didn’t Know Are Battling Medical Conditions
People who live in tick-infested areas are slowly waking up to the dangers of Lyme disease, but the long-term consequences of an infection are still unknown to many. Pop singer Avril Lavigne learned about Lyme the hard way when she was diagnosed in 2014 with a severe case of the disease. The illness left her bedridden for months, severely fatigued and lightheaded. The disease went undiagnosed for so long that the standard medical approaches to treatment did nothing for her. She’s been slowly working her way back to health, and in the meantime she’s starting to speak out about her experience. Lyme advocacy is also now a part of her charitible work as well.
