Avril Lavigne

Lyme disease advocate

29 Apr, 2015

Lavigne is now a strong advocate of Lyme disease awareness, after contracting the illness that led her to become bedridden for five months.

I feel like I have a responsibility — I can’t just sit on my ass and do nothing. I need to talk about Lyme disease, because it’s real, it’s out there, it was a simple bug bite and it could happen to anybody. People need to know about it, because it’s not talked about that much and a lot of the information that’s out there is inaccurate.
