VIDEO: Illness and Isolation

In eighth grade, Ali Mitrovich was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Less than four years after her diagnosis, Ali coordinated “In the Lyme Light,” a fashion show, which raised nearly $7,000 and helped educate the audience about the dangers of this invisible illness.

In her Tedx talk, Ali asks, how does disease and illness lead to social isolation and further suffering? She shares what she learned about the isolation of chronic illness from viewing the movie Wit and reading Jeniffer Nix’s essay, Finding Poetry in Illness.
