Shira Strongin lives with multiple physical issues but doctors can’t seem to put their fingers on them all. She has some gene mutations that make her one-in-a-million but she’s been “undiagnosed” for years. She started a blog, writing under the pen name Sick Chick when she was just 11 years old. So many women and girls related to it that it has now become an international organization called Sick Chicks – a support network of strong, chronically ill and disabled young women who choose to make a positive difference in the world.
Offering a platform for girls to express themselves, a community for girls to connect with others, and structure to empower girls to be active in their schools or cities, The Sick Chicks is helping change lives!
Sick Chicks is hosting its first summit on August 4 at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, California. The topic will be “Sisterhood and Sexuality.” Fore more info and to purchase tickets, click here.
