Lyme Disease & Celebrity Impact

Since being diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease in 2014, I’ve learned that not many people know much about the disease and I must confess, before 2014 neither did I but I’m learning. Over the past few years, however, I have noticed an uptick in awareness thanks to some brave celebrities stepping forward and sharing the personal journey with this debilitating disease.

In this post, I wanted to highlight a few celebrities who have Lyme Disease in hopes it would help to increase awareness and further educate our community.

Alec Baldwin
Justin Bieber
Kelly Osbourne
Ally Hilfiger
Ben Stiller
Ramona Singer

Shania Twain Yolanda Hadid

I’m so thankful they decided to share their stories as I feel it gives credibility to a disease that isn’t as well known and I am hopeful that even more people will have the courage to share their experiences as well.

Lyme Disease is a really hard illness to live with, especially if you’ve had it for a long time and it turns chronic. It is my hope that we will one day (soon) find a cure so those of us who suffer can get our lives back.

Thanks for your support!
