Hello, my name is Olivia,
and I have Lyme disease. When I was 12 years old, 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 tick bite away from getting Lyme disease.
Lyme Disease is the fastest growing vector-borne (tick-borne) infectious disease in the US
The annual incidence of Lyme Disease is now 1.5 times more than the estimated number of cases of breast cancer.
Estimated number of new cases of Lyme's Disease each year. 10 times more Americans than previously reported.
of Lyme Patients end up with long term health problems typically due to delayed diagnosis.
