CONTRIBUTOR

Maddie is a 22-year-old gal who has been living with chronic Lyme disease for 10 years. Through her illness, she has developed a passion for health food and cooking, painting and expressing herself in a mindful, purposeful, positive way, whether that be through singing (another passion of hers) or laughing or writing. Living not only with her own chronic illness but also alongside her father’s terminal illness, she has gained a great deal of perspective and gratitude and love.
