In October 2018, Aimee’s mom inspired her to use her autoimmune life experiences and learned knowledge paired with her love for others to launch the Autoimmune Sisters instagram account. In October 2019, this website was launched to provide resources via our Autoimmune Disease pages, a blog of Autoimmune Posts written by our incredible team of women with autoimmune disease and an Autoimmune Sisters-approved Wellness Directory.
He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.Micah 6:8
