Patient Leader

#butitsnotmylife was created in 2015 by two best friends, Tyresa & Tiffany. The vision was to create a social platform for individuals living with autoimmune diseases & chronic pain, who continue to accomplish their goals and thrive to live their lives regardless of their disease. We first launched our blog site in October 2015 with the premiere of our first Lupus documentary "I have Lupus, but its not my life." We also held our first fundraising event in March 2016 to raise funds for the AARDA. We also began a "Heroes" series in which we recognize other advocates who raise awareness online to be an inspiration to others. Overall, we want to encourage individuals to keep on fighting!
