Community Helps Woman Fight Lyme Disease

The great outdoors were a daily passion for 44-year-old Renee Avis until she contracted Lyme disease. Although she believes she was bitten by a tick carrying the disease in 2008, she was not diagnosed right await and now parts of her body are permanently damaged. Now, people from all over the South Bay have stepped up with donations and fundraisers to help cover medical costs. Gordon Tokumatsu reports from Hermosa Beach for NBC4 News at 5 p.m. on Sept. 17, 2013.
