Holly LeBlanc has always had a passion for people who are hurting. At the age of 18 her life took a major detour and she was faced head on with a life altering illness that resulted with a compromised digestive system. During her recovery, doctors discovered she was living with a neurological disorder. After five years of a misdiagnosis, they determined she had Friedreich’s Ataxia or FA for short. FA is a life-shortening disability. As a result of this disease she has lost her ability to walk. Her coordination and speech are affected. With the help of her family, friends and service dog, Barkley, she is able to navigate life. Recently, Holly was also diagnosed with Stage IV cancer.
Holly made a choice long ago to be better, not bitter, in her life. She desires to give purpose to this pain.
