As we prep for the new ChronicBabe site, we're shutting down the bits.
It was nice while it lasted! But the new stream-lined ChronicBabe.com won't have news items per se - although Editrix Jenni will be writing about newsworthy stuff. Just wanted you to know that we haven't forgotten about this feature...we're just letting it rest. Thanks!

The mission of ChronicBabe is to help young women with chronic illness be their best...to be Babes! We believe that empowerment can be the strongest medicine - that women who feel in control of their lives, despite their health issues, can achieve anything they put their minds to. Our mission doesn't stop with this web site; founder Jenni Prokopy uses many mediums to spread the ChronicBabe message, including public speaking, articles in consumer and trade magazines, radio and TV appearances, and more.
Join us in our mission to improve the lives of young women living with chronic illness. For more information on how you can help, contact us directly:
