So, ladies, that’s the question…#HowBoldAreYou? I saw this campaign from Chico’s in my O Magazine and I LOVED it. A great marketing campaign has the ability to make you think about how it relates to yourself. For me looking at that hashtag I instantly thought of my advocacy work.
For me being BOLD is being vulnerable and brave not about my age, but about how I advocate for my son with Down syndrome. How vulnerable I am when I share our story, our struggles. How brave and BOLD I am when I walk into those IEP meetings at his school to stand up for his right to a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). To be included both in school and in our community. His right to be valued!
For me being BOLD is sharing about why having a “side-hustle” is not bad, but brave! Because keeping my family healthy and building a life of financial freedom from the doctor, specialist and therapy bills that come with having a child with a disability is SMART.
So when I joined Plexus and started understanding the importance of “gut health” and seeing how it’s changing the lives of my family members, I became BOLD and vulnerable in sharing our health journey. Because I hope my story can help someone else be BOLD, brave and vulnerable in their advocacy and health journey.
As you may or may not know, there are so many issues that can come with a Down syndrome diagnosis like:
- poor diet
- lack of exercise
- along with hypothyroidism
- and many other diseases.
My son struggles with all of these. I struggle with hyperthyroidism, IBS, lack of sleep and weight loss like my husband. Now we take products that help restore good microbes for balanced gut health that optimize our health.
