Jessica runs a blog called Fashionably Ill and has run this blog for several years. It’s targeted not just to those with bipolar but several other autoimmune diseases that she battles everyday. She lets us know that despite the invisible illnesses or even the visible ones, we can still do things to make ourselves look good and feel good and boost our self esteem. Jessica does an amazing job and is an amazing advocate friend of mine and she not only advocates on her blog, but is a friend to others with mental illness outside the blog and can always be counted on for support when you need it!  — Christina

I've known Jessica for years and don't know anyone who suffers more on a daily basis from five chronic diseases. She doesn't complain despite countless setbacks in her health for several years. She always gets back up, goes out of her way to raise awareness about many chronic diseases that affect so many people, deserves massive respect for that.  — Edwin
