Mickey

Patient Leader

My name is Mickey and I’m YouTuber and public speaker. I share my story of illness and how I found joy despite the pain and heartache of life. I have Classical Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and it has caused me to be dependent on feeding tubes and central lines. Despite all of that, my goal in life is to be so full of JOY it infects everyone around me!

Because she gives me hope to keep kicking my illnesses butt👊🏼  — Macie

Mickey is such a strong girl in so many ways! I can’t believe how mentally able she is to speak and teach about her disabilities publicly. And the way she physically overcomes her illness and doesn’t show how.much pain she is really in when things happen. I really think she deserves this nomination and I would vote her more than once if I could.  — Katie

She is a great person whom has been through alot. She always makes others including myself feel better while dealing with chronic health issues.  — Hope
