Hello, my name is Olivia
and I am 12 years old, and I have Lyme Disease. I started the LivLyme Foundation to raise money for children that cannot afford their Lyme medication and to raise money to find a cure for all of us suffering from Lyme disease. Thank you for visiting my website and remember you are just one bite away from getting Lyme disease.
Gala & Donations Raised $224k to help children afford meds and to find a cure!
