Aerial Mendez

Patient Leader

Hello world! I'm Aerial, I love helping people, making them happy and helping them know they are not alone in life. I deal with chronic pain and illness daily along with certain mental health issues that make doing simple tasks difficult in life. Being sick is hard and hard on your mental health, but with people out there to talk to and knowing that they have similar issues with health problems, it makes life more bearable because you get to know you are not alone. I want to show the world that people who are sick can still do great things and overcome challenges in life and still do fun things and learn. I hope spreading awareness will help others see we are more than our disabilities!
