My hope is that we are able to build a support network of strong, positive thinking young chronically ill women who do not define themselves by their illness or limitations and choose to make a difference in the world we live in. Sick Chicks will be a place to showcase our abilities, passions, uniqueness and strengths with the hope of inspiring others. Below is just a preview. Our community is strong!

I’ve been in and out of many hospitals and it’s not fun. This organization, Love Packages, which is run by teens, sends out personalized care packages to make hospital stays feel more comfortable and homey. This could be something really big for the chronically ill community. Right now Love Packages is raising money to bring more smiles to patients' faces.

Educate about Ushers
I am a teenage girl in a little town in the state of South Carolina going through high school with a eye disease known as Ushers Syndrome. Ushers Sydnrome is a rare disease that affects both eyes and ears. I am here to make a change for the world and to reach out to others about impairments.

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.
