Reuters details how Lyme disease never far from thoughts of WNBA star Delle Donne
On the court, Elena Delle Donne is a favorite to win the WNBA’s MVP award this year. But Reuters detailed how her fatigue and stiffness on certain days has nothing to so with the rigors of a Women’s National Basketball Association season but with the lasting effects of Lyme disease, which she believes she contracted in 2008. Off the court, she is a spokeswoman for Lyme disease prevention and a global ambassador for the Special Olympics. Della Donne said she wants to educate the public about Lyme disease so no one has to go through the trauma she endured.
