Jen Hardy remembers spending time sitting on the couch thinking about how difficult it is to parent while chronically ill, and looking online for ways to make it easier. There are online support groups and guides for everything, so she was surprised with how little support she found for women who want to parent with positivity while sick. This is what inspired her to create a website for moms like her.
"This started as a way for me to connect with other moms like me, but after I started writing blog posts, more and more people were telling me to get this out, and share it with as many people as possible. I never planned to turn into a book."
Jen Hardy is an avid collector of eclectic diseases, and mystifier of physicians. She is married to her knight in shining armor, and a Mom to 7 children, ages 5-27. She has spent over two decades perfecting the art of improving the way homes are managed when a parent has chronic illness.
Jen is creating a worldwide support system for moms struggling with chronic illness, pain, depression, and anxiety. She has learned how to not only exist, but LIVE again, and her goal is to share her secret with the millions of moms around the world who feel like they have no hope. If she can do it, you can do it too!
