Triggered first by a near-fatal car accident that sent her 100-lb body flying from a crosswalk and later by a painful Lupus diagnosis, Melissa became stuck in a season of brokenness. She not only learned how to nourish her broken body with the help of food, herbs, and a gastronomically-gifted Italian grandmother but her broken heart and crushed spirit. As the founder of LupusChick, a non-profit supporting those with autoimmune diseases, she offers guiding principles, personal stories, and recipes that support whole-life thriving. With the depth, smarts, and spiritual advice beloved by her dedicated followers, Marisa shows us how faith, passion, and persistence
can radically change lives.
