Everyone on the Mighty Well team is either a patient themselves, or has had direct lived experience as a caregiver for a loved one living with chronic illness. This is especially true for our newest team member, Mikayla Gempp! Mikayla’s whole family has been effected by chronic illness. Her mother lives with Lyme disease and Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Her brother lives with Asperger’s Syndrome and her father was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2007. Through her experience as a sister and daughter, she embodies the Mighty Well ideal of being a true Friend in the Fight!
We sat down to interview her about her and her family last month, and have shared a few highlights from that conversation below. Thank you Mikayla for sharing your family story!
