Our Healthgist query to find women who live with a chronic disease(s) both surprises and inspires.

Surprising, as there are thousands of unseen chronic illnesses that don’t have obvious physical disfigurement or signs that show outwardly.

And inspiring, as thousands of women have turned their potentially disabling disease state into a positive force and energy for themselves and others.

We received stories from all over the nation and also from Canada and New Zealand (the power of connectivity).

Women from all backgrounds and walks of life shared their stories of the dreaded diagnosis, the detailed struggles and eventual triumph of turning things for the good.

The following women’s’ stories are being featured for the echoing shared themes through their journeys and for the simple fact that they are all the most inspiring Healthgist gals.

Meet our heroines:
