Mandy Young is a self-proclaimed southern social butterfly who loves her family, friends, sweet tea, the color pink and most of all, Jesus. Her greatest joy is traveling around the country sharing her story and speaking about the challenges of body image. For her entire life Mandy has suffered from massive life threatening infections while at the same time undergoing grueling, painful and exhausting immune studies in an effort to find out why she continued to get sick. She’s been hospitalized more than a hundred times for days, weeks, even months at a time as doctors studied her and fought to keep her alive. Mandy’s mysterious medical history and exuberance for life has been featured countless times nationally on shows such as CNN’s Medical Mysteries, NBC Nightly News, the Montel Williams Show, Extra, and in countless newspapers and magazines. Whether speaking to thousands or small gatherings, Mandy feels blessed to travel the country and share the story God has given her.
