Brooke LePage used to be a competitive swimmer in Winnipeg, but after contracting Lyme disease last year, the 12-year-old girl can barely muster the energy to get out of bed.
“I’m feeling extremely tired and I usually stay in bed all day,” said LePage. “I’ll only get up to go to the bathroom.”
LePage has been living with regular headaches, fevers, exhaustion and dizziness since December 2014.
