The Mighty is a story-based health community focused on improving the lives of people facing disease, disorder, mental illness and disability. More than half of Americans are facing serious health conditions or medical issues. They want more than information. They want to be inspired. The Mighty publishes real stories about real people facing real challenges.
In June 2015, I found myself one of those real people taking care of a 1 year old in the hospital as he was undergoing a bone marrow transplant in attempts to cure his rare disease. Times when Luka napped, it was just me and the beeping machines and my thoughts. I started writing those thoughts down and then realized my words could help others not feel so alone. By sharing my first article on The Mighty, "How I Trusted My Instincts Raising My Child with Rare Disease," it was really me that felt not as alone sharing our story with the world.
Today more than ever, we're dedicated to helping people with rare disease in their lives. With this partnership, we'll be able to help even more people.
We encourage you to submit a story to The Mighty and make your voice heard.
