Angeli VanLaanen is one of the top female freeskiers in the world and a well-rounded athlete with expertise in all areas of her sport; this 30-minute documentary film is based on her battle with Lyme disease. Angeli’s story of misdiagnosis is all too common due to the lack of knowledge in our society and in the medical community. After her diagnosis, VanLaanen was forced to put her competitive halfpipe career on hold at the peak of her career. Motivated by her struggle, Angeli linked up with Director John Roderick to make an awareness piece sharing a raw account of her experience, “Our goal with LymeLight is to educate people about Lyme disease, where it comes from, what the symptoms are and the challenges people face reclaiming their health.”
