In October 2018, my mom inspired me to use my autoimmune knowledge paired with my love for others to launch the Autoimmune Sisters instagram account. I had no idea that so many women were looking for community. So, over the past several months, we have designed and developed this website and membership portal to encompass the Autoimmune Sisters TRIBE; an online community for women with Autoimmune Diseases. Thank you for stopping by to learn about our team.

Madison Suttles


Crohn's Disease

Hello! My name is Madison, and I am passionate about health, fitness, and Jesus. I have had autoimmune symptoms nearly my entire life, but was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease back in 2016. I began my blog as a way to connect with, and encourage others going through similar struggles, and have now joined the Autoimmune Sisters team to continue my outreach. I can't wait to continue engaging in this community, and offering my experience with Crohn's as a resource to others on their health journeys.

I fell in love with an army soldier at 19 & 9 years later we have two beautiful girls & one on the way. Our oldest, Lillie Grace, was diagnosed with Celiac Disease at the age of two.
