Lauren Minicozzi: I Am Not My Illness.
By Monique Medved
I met Lauren two years ago and she is someone who has had to overcome a lot of health issues in the two years I have known her. Her battle with Lyme disease after being diagnosed at the age of 23 has led Lauren down some dark places, but through her many ups and downs it has also lead her to find her true purpose in life which is to educate people about Lyme disease and help young people see that a body does not define you. Now a published author (and self proclaimed comedian) she shares her story of the highest of highs and lowest of lows. FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM: @finallyfoundcardsFOLLOW LAUREN: @laurenminicozzi
