The Canadian pop-rocker will perform a virtual concert to raise awareness and money for the fight against Lyme disease, a personal cause for Lavigne, who has battled the debilitating illness herself.
All proceeds will go towards The Avril Lavigne Foundation and Global Lyme Alliance. “I’m so excited to invite you to join me and some VERY special guests for #FightLyme, a virtual concert to benefit the Lyme community,” she said in a statement.
“Since Lyme disease is a global pandemic but not a global priority, we need all the help we can get to eradicate Lyme. Not being able to bring my show to everyone in person this year, I thought it was a good time to have some fun while we raise funds.”
