    English Summary/英文概要: So many young people are faced with life-changing hardships—from illness and disease to loss and calamity. What Olivia Goodreau discovers through her journey with chronic Lyme, and what she has been sharing with the world, is that inside of every predicament is also a possibility. This is the story of how Olivia turned the physical challenges and emotional hardships she had faced since she was a little girl into an engaged life of advocacy for others.

    Olivia became mysteriously sick in second grade and saw her world change forever. Activities she had loved were no longer possible. Friends she had counted on disappeared. Doctors could not figure out what was the matter or how to help her feel better. But Olivia never gave up. Eventually, she would find not only a diagnosis and a treatment, but a purpose for her life. She became committed to helping others protect themselves from tick-borne diseases and heal their chronic illness, too. She began meeting with doctors and politicians around the country, advocating for new policies, raising money to support other families struggling with Lyme, and creating apps to help others like herself.

    Olivia offers hope and inspiration to young people meeting all kinds of challenges—from the ordinary ups and downs of schoolyard bullying to the exceptional challenges of illness and despair. Olivia was determined to get better…and she did. Not only that, a great part of her healing consisted of helping others feel better, too. She shows young people what is possible when you are determined to succeed. We don’t have to accept the way things are. We can change them.
