What is your favorite quote?

"You are a tough cookie and you can get through anything" from my friend Alex Treglazoff

What is your philosophy on life and living with chronic disease?

Live in gratitude, focus on what you can do instead of what you can't and take care of yourself without feeling guilty.

Who inspires you and why?

I am inspired by the people I meet in various support groups who are determined to live a productive, happy and fulfilled life despite being labeled with a scary diagnosis.

What would your advice be to someone just beginning on a chronic disease journey?

Reach out to others who are dealing with similar circumstances, continue to look for things to be grateful for and do things that support your physical, spiritual, emotional and mental health.


Hi, I'm Jeannie and I've been living with interstitial lung disease and pulmonary hypertension for quite some time. I am interested in meeting others who try to live their best life despite chronic/life threatening illness.
