Skye Miu Steppe

Patient Leader

At 12 years old I was diagnosed with Fibrous Dysplasia in the entire right side of my face and skull, I spent years embarrassed of myself because of my chronic illness. I was bullied for my facial deformity, scars, surgeries and was told I was faking and lying about my illness and the pain that my FD causes me. To date, I have had three facial reconstructive surgeries, two bone grafts, and one cadaver bone. I spend my time creating awareness videos, writing articles and running my own nonprofit, FD Warriors Inc. I encourage others to speak out about their daily struggles through my own website and social media pages. I have Fibrous Dysplasia, but it no longer defines . who I am.
