This episode is from our old podcast "The Dani and Me inspire podcast"

After becoming chronically ill almost 2 years ago Jen has been tirelessly advocating to find a diagnosis for her condition. In her “episode” we will talk about how she presents similar to stroke, always affecting her left side, her speech, loose convulsions, and her ability to function.  She has 9 benign brain tumors but Dr’s don’t think that is the issue she is dealing with now.  Her brain scans are showing ischemic issues now along with the brain tumors. She considers herself fortunate these are benign.

In her youth she was a competitive athlete, and graduated from Acadia with a business relationship management degree. She is an entrepreneur at heart.  Her husband works away half the year and she stays home with her children who are 10 and 7. She also makes time for a few hours of business consulting. 

Listen in on what grounds her, what inspires her to keep researching and advocating, and how you can incorporate the lessons of people with chronic illness learn into your own life.
