About Me


I’m Michelle, I’m a special needs mom living with adrenal insufficiency. 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.
