S1E137 - The Dynamic Duo - an interview with Olivia and Holiday Goodreau
Olivia first got sick with Lyme disease when she was 7 and was misdiagnosed with Wilson's disease
Olivia and Holiday Goodreau are the dynamic mother-daughter team from Denver Colorado that co-founded the LivLyme Foundation and the Tick Tracker App. The Goodreau family’s Lyme disease journey began when Olivia was bitten by a tick at the age of 7. Olivia’s classic Lyme disease symptoms were misdiagnosed by 51 doctors over 18 months. Since her diagnosis, Olivia has become one of the Lyme disease community’s most aggressive advocates resulting in her meeting with Governors, Senators, a President and world leaders. She has also partnered with some of the Lyme community’s most famous doctors including Dr. Neil Spector and Dr. Richard Horowitz.
