Each year for her birthday, Avril Lavigne turns to her fans to help others in need—this year, she's asking for help to fight Lyme Disease. Now in recovery after being diagnosed for Lyme Disease, Lavigne is running a campaign on Prizeo through her Avril Lavigne Foundation.

Since Lavigne is voicing the Snow White character in the upcoming film 'Charming,' she's giving her fans the chance to be part of the movie. The goal of the campaign is to raise a total of $60,000, which will be given to those who cannot afford care for Lyme Disease treatment.

Unfortunately this disease and many chronic illnesses don't get the public attention they should, but a familiar celebrity face is certainly helpful in mobilizing a devoted following to rise to action.
