Has your life turned out different than what you thought it would be? Are you facing circumstances that seem overwhelming with no end in sight, that at times leaves you feeling defeated and alone?
I’m Mika Bradford and like many of you, my life has taken twists and turns I never expected. In my early twenties, I found myself facing life changing circumstances when my second son Jacob, was diagnosed with autism. I was told there was little known about autism and that I should begin looking for long-term placement and care for him as he most likely would never speak or live independently. I was twenty-six, married with three children and my life was disrupted and forever changed. My story of ups and downs, victories and defeat does not end there.
For over two decades I’ve searched for answers, hope and help, and through this process found real answers to real questions, connecting the dots of health conditions, nutrition, diagnostic and laboratory tests that directly improved the quality of Jacob’s life! If you or someone you love, has had their life turned upside down by the diagnosis of an acute or chronic illness, is now caring for elderly parents, a child diagnosed with a disability or is struggling with addiction or the loss of a significant relationship then join me as we connect the dots to information, help, and resources that can change your life!
