Kidney Donor with Lyme Disease

I am being tested in a few weeks to be a possible kidney donor for a family member. I was diagnosed with lyme disease 10 years ago and have had no symptoms since being treated. Can i still donate a kidney after having lyme disease? I know that Lyme disease can attack kidney function, so I don't want to donate a rotten kidney and infect someone else with lyme bacteria.
