Avril Lavigne Shares an Update on Lyme Disease Battle: 'On My Way to Good Health'

By
Avril Lavigne is in high spirits as she continues her battle with Lyme disease.
The 30-year-old singer shared an Instagram photo from a doctor’s office visit on Tuesday, writing, "This journey continues ..... Just reach up, don't give up until you've touch the sky ..... We were all meant to fly."

Lavigne also shared a pic of vials of blood, with an uplifting message for fans: "On my way to good health #TakingCareOfMyself."

The singer told Good Morning America in July that she was about halfway through her treatment for the disease and is expected to make a full recovery. She said messages from fans helped her through the toughest times after her diagnosis.
"I sat there in my bed and watched [fan videos showing their support for her] and I cried through the whole thing and honestly I felt very loved," she said with a smile. "It sounds silly, but I really did feel my fans through the process."
The entire experience, Lavigne explained, also gave her a new outlook on her future.
"I think for me it's a second shot at life," she says. "I want to go out there and truly do what I love, so I'm so excited for life after this."
