75: Saving a friend's life with Kelly Mendenhall
Show Notes

From Project BFF HQ, Terri + Manya talk with Kelly Mendenhall about how friendships cannot be 50/50 all the time, and how to be a friend to someone with a disability. And she shares the story of how she literally saved a friend's life by advocating for her medical care.

This was a fabulous conversation and we know you will love it too. Kelly is a disabled author, speaker, creator, and activist fighting against medical gaslighting and bringing more joy to Spoonies everywhere, one stitch at a time.


Kelly's mission is to spread more love and joy to Spoonies* everywhere through the written word and handcrafted, lovingly made items. You can learn more about her on her website: KellyJMendenhall.com, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, or TikTok

*Note: Spoonie is a term for disabled people. You can learn more about Spoonies and The Spoon Theory HERE in an article she wrote for SpineNation.
