Teresa Hill-Putnam

When Teresa’s life was first turned upside down by a myasthenia gravis diagnosis, she had a lot of life to disrupt. She was a dance instructor, the owner of a thriving business and the mother of three young children. Now preparing to help her youngest daughter launch her own performing arts career, Teresa reflects on her MG journey and how it has affected her family and challenged essential ideas she holds of herself as a mother and artist.

"You feel kind of like you’re a hypochondriac, but it’s all real."
