Many of our favorite entertainers have been opening up about coping with invisible diseases. Selena Gomez just revealed she had to receive a kidney transplant due to her lupus, Lady Gaga recently opened up about her fibromyalgia, and Bella Hadid frequently discusses her Lyme disease.
Now, Shania Twain is opening up about Lyme Disease on "60 Minutes Australia."
She hit the scene again in 2011 with new music, and even went on tour in 2015.
She stays committed to her music, but still respects her limits. When she began to feel ill on tour, she canceled some of the dates, but promised fans she'd be back soon.
Now she's back, and we couldn't be happier for her! Plus, it's invaluable when a star opens up about a little-known disease.
People with invisible diseases often have to deal with the stigma that they don't "look sick." Their illnesses and pain often get trivialized. By speaking out about her Lyme Disease, Twain is bringing awareness to an issue many people don't know about or understand.
Glad to have you back, Twain!
