The Complicated singer has been fighting the condition for the past year and is still far from recovered, but she's keen to pass on tips, advice and information to others struggling.

The five-week Avril Lavigne Foundation campaign will raise funds and awareness for youngsters with the debilitating disease.

Lavigne has offered to hand out with a grand prize winner who takes part in the campaign. The winner will also land a speaking role in her new animated film Charming.

Lavigne says, "I'm excited that this year's campaign is supporting people with Lyme disease and helping others to better understand this issue. My fans are always so supportive and ready to give back; I look forward to coming together for an issue that's so close to me."
