Hello, My name is Michelle! My goal in writing this blog is to help other girls with Turner Syndrome and their parents. I was diagnosed with Turner Syndrome over ten years ago. About 1 in every 2,500 girls is born with this relatively common but little understood genetic disorder involving a chromosomal abnormality. Ignorance about Turner Syndrome almost took my life, in 2013 due to adrenal failure and a rare cancer associated with Turner Syndrome. It is my goal and sincere hope that you do not have to learn the hard way like I did. Knowledge is power, and with the right knowledge you can still live a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life despite having Turner Syndrome! 🙂
Some things I love are drawing, travelling, painting, classical music, learning about health & wellness, and (of course) writing! Most importantly, I volunteer my time to help people in my community every week. Learning different languages is something I really enjoy too…my husband and I are currently learning Korean (yes I’m one of those K-Pop fans lol) as well as Thai! I live in the Seattle area with my amazing husband and our crazy cats Mittens and Socks. =^..^=
Well, now that you know a little about me, please tell me your story! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact me to request topics for future articles and posts. I would be ecstatically happy to oblige!
Much love, xoxo
