In July of 2017, 13-year-old Olivia was on vacation in Missouri with her family. While outside Olivia noticed a tick on her dog, Mo (short for Missouri). Olivia & her mom watched the tick start to burrow into Mo’s leg. They quickly found needle nose tweezers to properly remove the tick from Mo. As Olivia was removing the tick she asked her mom, “Is there an app that can show what ticks are around us?” That night Olivia looked online and found that currently there was no app to help track, report, and educate people about ticks. This gave Olivia the idea to create the TickTracker app to help keep everyone safe.

Olivia has suffered from chronic Lyme and co-infections since she was 6 years old. She is a Lyme advocate and the founder of The LivLyme Foundation.

LivLyme Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization supporting the work of researchers and scientists who are dedicated to finding the effective treatment for Lyme disease and ultimately finding the cure. LivLyme Foundation also provides assistance to children and their families struggling with Lyme Disease through education and funding.

We envision a world without Lyme. Working toward this goal, we will provide valuable resources to educate all, support those who are battling Lyme, and help develop the cure.

Over 350,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme disease every year in the US. This equates to over 29,000 new cases every month, 959 new cases a day, 40 new cases every hour. As the fastest spreading vector-borne (tick-borne) disease in the US, the number of new cases of Lyme is 1.5 times greater than breast cancer and 7 times greater than HIV/AIDS. 200 children get Lyme disease every day, that’s 4 school busses of children a day diagnosed with Lyme.

The cost to treat Lyme disease is in excess of $1 billion per year, or approximately $3,000 per patient per year. But, the per-patient cost of treating PTLDS (Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome) can be in the $10,000 – $100,000 range. Most insurance plans only cover treatment for the first month, leaving the patient with out of pocket expenses for medication, supplements and treatment.

Another challenge that patients face is the rising cost of medicine. Doxycycline, an antibiotic routinely prescribed for treatment of Lyme disease, has increased from $.03 per pill to over $5.00 per pill since 2014. Many patients take two of these per day. Without help, some children won’t be able to get the medication they need.

Love this idea


Only changes I’d love to see is options for other bugs known to carry Lyme since I can’t even add 2 infections since those were from a
mosquito and a spider and I was tested too and I had bands 18,23,24,31,34,39,41, and 83. This was from the mosquito. When I did the western blot it was negative completely 3x. Yet the CDC wants us to use that joke of a test meant for HIV and AIDS. They wouldn’t accept my cdc+ because it wasn’t from a tick. REALLY? Ticks are the least of our worries. Mosquitoes have killed more people than all wars combined. I’d like to see other bug options and an area for an explanation as to why you chose not to have treatment. Some can’t afford to and others passed away. Sadly. Again once I see those things I’d give this a 10

Works well for 1.0


TickTracker is a great idea. In the 1.0 version, the basic functionality is there. To make it more useful, it needs things like "center map on current location" button, only load tick reports within a certain radius of a location, and other features. I look forward to using it this summer.

Amazing idea.


I wish I had this app in September when I got bitten in Cape Cod - it would have saved me from getting Lyme. Love this idea and the foundation behind it is great also. Hope this takes off!
