This woman right here, Mary Kelly O’Connor, is my hero. She saved my life and the lives of countless others. After suffering from Cushing’s Disease alone, she decided nobody should ever have to do it alone. So she started Cushings Help Organization, Inc., to connect Cushing’s patients so they could share information and support each other. Without that resource many of us would not be alive now. She has done this on her own time and mostly out of her own pocket. Cushing’s Help has thousands of members and has increased Cushing’s awareness so much that other Cushing’s organizations have been formed. She is the catalyst that is changing lives of Cushing’s patients around the world. Love you, Mary O!
