About Me


I’m Michelle. I’m passionate about raising my little humans, patient advocacy, fighting cancer and chronic illness. I’m out to live life to the fullest and carpe all the diems.

I have a hereditary condition called MEN2A, which has caused cancer, pheochromocytomas, and has led to my adrenal insufficiency. I am adapting to steroid dependent life day by day while trying to live a fulfilling life and raising a family. My daughter has this illness as well, and everything I do is to blaze a trail for her.
