Brand Manager, Victoria Reese discusses life with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and how she built community in a space where there once was none.
In this episode, we talk about the journey to diagnosis in a system where the pain black women endure is often overlooked. We also talk about how Victoria cultivated a community of black women who were not seeing themselves in the materials provided to people with MS; growing #weareillmatic from just a campaign to now a larger non profit, We Are Ill, with a mission to redefine what sick looks like.
