Wow! Thanks for this list. I didn't know so many famous people had Lyme. I wonder why none of these people never really talked about it much? Especially, Rosie O' Donnell's daughter. Rosie could have really gotten Lyme out there to the public with her talk show.

I don't know why they never talked about it. Doesn't make much sense, especially with all the publicity Michael J. Fox has gotten for his early onset Parkinson's of unexplained origin. After reading what Lyme can do to people, especially the neurological aspect of this disease, I was not surprised to see him on this list. It is terribly sad that these famous people haven't gotten much publicity with this disease. Someday soon I hope.
