Keep Shining, video above, shares my personal story and struggle with rare chronic illness, disability and recovery and is a powerful reminder to never give up...
I'm Lisa Sniderman, an award-winning San Francisco-based artist (known as Aoede), playwright, author and filmmaker. I’ve been honored with more than 85 awards for my songwriting, audiobooks, films, stage plays and books. At the heart of my mission are inspiration, healing and creativity. I foster healing to give your creative spirit wings and inspire you to share your story.
What can we do when we struggle with an illness that doesn’t go away? I’ve been there. Like many of you, I’ve navigated and battled with a rare chronic illness for more than 12 years-a progressive muscle weakness autoimmune disease called dermatomyositis (DM). My story is persevering through this darkness by obsessively turning to creativity to express and as a healing path. But my story and my life’s purpose is also becoming a light in the darkness and a muse.
In 2020, after more than 12 years battling my rare chronic illness, like many of you, I still face immense challenges continuing to create and connect with others, finding and being part of community, while homebound and having limited energy. I discovered that not only do I want to find innovative ways to continue to do these, but I'm driven to continue to be a light to others like me who struggle with chronic illness and limited energy. I created this summit to bring a diverse community together virtually to inspire, encourage and help those of us struggling with chronic illness and limited energy, loved ones and caretakers, to go from surviving to THRIVING. And it took a year of planning, as I needed to be mindful of balancing care for my own illness and limited energy, including receiving monthly infusions to deal with a flare of my DM, with recording 60 interviews and planning this summit! May something you watch, share, or participate in during the summit inspire and encourage you on your journey!
