In Sierra's words....
I suffer from POTS (stage 3 dysautonomia), mast cell activation syndrome, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, PTSD, and immunodeficiency. I currently model and do animal photography. I love to sing and act, but my newest project is making free port pillows for port-a-cath patients. I send them all over the world and get donations to keep the project going.
I have a service dog named Chigo. I do animal photography as well as studying animal psychology in the hopes of one day opening an animal rescue.
I love to help people. I started making port pillows to give to patients for free because I understand the need. I have been using social media to distribute them to people and I have been collecting donations to cover the costs. It helps me cope with my own illnesses because it makes me feel like I really have a purpose.
