Our hope is that we are able to build a support network of strong young chronically ill and disabled young women who choose to make a positive difference in the world we live in. Sick Chicks is a place to showcase our abilities, passions, uniqueness and strengths with the hope of empowering others. Below is just a preview. Our community is strong!

keep hope alive through activism
"I started Emily's Fight in 2013 at just thirteen years old. It was my attempt to find solace when a serious, rare disease threatened to take everything from me. [...] As I grow up and move further past the times I once believed I would never get through, I am reminded of the fact that I am experiencing something few do. Instead of allowing this to isolate me, I've decided to make this website place of documentation and give my readers the insight I wish I had, not only about going through illness itself, but also about the mental impacts of coming out on the other end." // Emily Muller
We've got your back

"I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and Postural Orhostatic Tachycardia. I want to raise awareness about these illnesses and raise money for organizations that support the rare disease community. And because my life has been positively impacted by so many, most of all - I want to encourage everyone to give back." // Meredith Butenhoff
