Ep#55 Living with a Rare Disease: Making the Impossible Possible | Sarah Bolton | Empowering Family Health
Sarah Bolton is a resilience coach and rare disease advocate. Prior to becoming a coach, she worked as a cosmetologist and enjoyed helping people feel beautiful and confident in their own bodies. She was diagnosed with a rare disease called Myasthenia gravis. Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a chronic autoimmune disorder in which antibodies destroy the communication between nerves and muscle, resulting in weakness of the skeletal muscles. Myasthenia gravis affects the voluntary muscles of the body, especially those that control the eyes, mouth, throat and limbs.Sarah quickly realized that her career working in the salon was unsustainable because of the frequent episodes of MG muscle weakness, especially in her hands.Sarah worked with a coach prior to her diagnosis and saw the positive impact coaching had on her own life. So she decided to become a coach herself. Now, Sarah loves working with women in leadership roles as well as other folks living with invisible/chronic illnesses. In partnering with her clients, Sarah helps folks shift their focus away from how they are limited, tune into their own creativity, reinvent their relationships with their bodies so that they are in tune with what they need, and create their lives based on what they CAN do despite the challenges.
