“Hello everybody! I wanted to first thank my fans for your patience and support during my battle with Lyme disease in the last two years. It is not only a difficult battle, but it is also very illuminating. It will be reflected in my new music, in my artistic processes, in my life and on a personal level,” she wrote in her social media accounts.
Lavigne said she will will bring awareness to the rare disease.
“It will always be a priority to fight and raise awareness of Lyme disease with the Avril Lavigne Foundation,” the singer added.
