Living with Multiple Sclerosis, a disease of the central nervous system, is not a walk in the park and often results in a lot of discouragement and hopelessness. Dawnmarie Deshaies, the founder and CEO of Dawnmarie Healthy and Fit, is one who has battled against Multiple Sclerosis almost all her life. While the journey to get to where she is right now has been quite challenging, she has found a way to use her physical challenges to build a community that seeks to inspire support and spark hope for others like her.
Realizing that Multiple Sclerosis does not define her dreams and her future, she mustered the courage to establish Dawnmarie Healthy and Fit as a global wellness brand that aims to provide guides to achieving good health, self-care, mindfulness, restoration, and positivity. With a dedicated team of volunteers and members who are more than willing to support the programs, Dawnmarie is successfully helping others like her live victorious and productive lives despite their condition.
“For years I lived and suffered from a chronic autoimmune disease that impacted my life in so many different ways and almost died. Through my personal journey, I learned I had to become the number one advocate of my own personal life through learning about this destructive disease, unseen PhantoMS, I have been living with my entire life. I needed to take control of my personal health journey and share what I learned along the way,” Dawnmarie Healthy and Fit founder explains.
In the community, members fully realize that they are not alone in battling multiple sclerosis and that there are many out there who also go through the same ordeal with their families. By providing members with helpful data, practical content that they can reflect on, tips on how to make the most out of there situation, and an opportunity to meet a support group, Dawnmarie Healthy and Fit is achieving its main goal to make a lasting positive impact on the lives of so many people living with the illness.
“Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in the multiple sclerosis and autoimmune communities, we are continuing to build our organization to provide pathways to wellness using active lifestyle, personalized fitness, positive thinking, motivational coaching, and healthy eating choices. Through podcasts, virtual learning and coaching, authored books, becoming part of a community with like objectives, we strive to help you realize the potential you want to achieve,” she adds.
Dawnmarie’s positive attitude and determination to live her life to the fullest despite what she has to live with are instrumental in her inner healing and boosting her emotional well-being. She is known to reach out to people who also go through the same things she does and offers encouragement. She believes that by extending love, support, and compassion, she is able to make a difference in their lives. Establishing Dawnmarie Healthy and Fit is her way of reaching out to more people who are living in the dark, not knowing that there is a way they can live exceptionally fulfilling lives despite their multiple sclerosis.
As she continues to use Dawnmarie Healthy and Fit as an effective platform to speak boldly about overcoming the downsides of having multiple sclerosis, Dawnmarie is encouraging people to tap into their inner strength and fight to live out their life’s purpose without fear.
