Today’s guest, Keisha Greaves, knows a thing or several about overcoming obstacles. Keisha is a motivational speaker, the founder of Girls Chronically Rock, and the Massachusetts State Ambassador for the MDA. Keisha started GCR to provide inspired fashion celebrating MD and other chronic illnesses. Keisha has been featured on GMA, The Today Show, ABC News, and several other notable news outlets.
When she was in graduate school, Keshia started noticing symptoms that something was wrong. She would randomly fall on the floor, unable to get up. After many tests, she was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and it changed her life forever. It took a while to come to terms with her diagnosis, but when she did, she started her blog Living With Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy to share her story and found a lot of support from people who read it.
She was always a lover of fashion and decided to incorporate her knowledge and expertise with her condition in 2017 to create her business Girls Chronically Rock. With her business, she sells inspirational t-shirts, home decor, masks, and more that inspire and motivate people with chronic diseases like herself. Her goal is to create an adaptive clothing collection to make her clothes more accessible to people with disabilities and make it widely available.
