In the LymeLight

Freeskier Angeli VanLaanen, 26, is working on a documentary film, called "LymeLight," that follows her professional ski career and her battle with Lyme disease. The film is currently in the fundraising stage and has no debut date yet.

    This month -- May is Lyme awareness month -- VanLaanen is working to raise funds for her movie, and get the message about Lyme disease out there. "I want to create a campaign to raise awareness for Lyme disease," VanLaanen says. "The goal is to educate and inspire through sharing my experience."The documentary is not for profit, VanLaanen says. Ultimately, VanLaanen hopes to return to competitive halfpipe skiing.
