A singer/songwriter from Newton Mearns has released a single about his experience as he battles Lyme disease.

Father of two Rico Franchi is donating all proceeds from the single ‘Getting Better’ to Caudwell Lyme Disease.

The charity fights for better diagnostic testing and improved treatment options for UK sufferers.

Once a keen runner as well as a successful musician, Rico was ill for two years before doctors diagnosed his Lyme disease, after he started to experience a range of symptoms from chronic fatigue and dizziness to depression.

Now on the road to recovery, Rico hopes money raised by his single will make future diagnosis easier.
