Avril Lavigne donates $60K to children with Lyme disease
Singer Avril Lavigne, who was diagnosed with Lyme disease over a year ago, has been raising funds to help others facing the illness. Her charity, The Avril Lavigne Foundation, recently donated more than $60,000 to the Lymelight Foundation, which provides treatment grants to children with Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.
Kudos to Avril Lavigne and to the Lymelight Foundation, for their work to help improve the lives of these suffering children.
Here’s a video posted by the Lymelight Foundation in response to Avril’s donation.

Well done Avril.
Bio Resonance and ozone are probably the best treatments for Lyme.

Thanks to Avril. I gave birth to five children infecting them all with Lyme. I am parenting a grand daughter that got bit and infected at 4. Her pediatrician at the time told her parents that 2 weeks treatment was enough. It wasn’t. She’s preparing to treat again. I and my adult children continue to be sick. I am looking into opening a clinic for Lyme and co-infections here in Maine. Something’s got to give….thanks again Avril. It seems that those of us infected have to do the work of helping others and funding a cure. It’s daunting when you’re ill and poor , So I am grateful to those with funds who help out!
