A badass mom!

Loren's Badass Chick

Arlene's Daughter

This week's Badass Chick is Arlene Jette, a badass mom who is working tirelessly to care for her daughter. 

 

At the age of one and a half, Arlene's daughter was diagnosed with a rare lung disease that only affects one in every one million people. For the past eight years, Arlene has been ensuring that her daughter receives the best care possible in an effort to figure out what will work best for her longterm health. 

 

In the mean time, Arlene's faced some rough challenges, like being locked out of her job and losing her health care coverage. But what I love about Arlene is that she's got the most positive attitude and actually considers being locked out a blessing in disguise, since she's been able to spend much more time with her daughter and the rest of her family. 

 

Arlene also lives by some pretty great rules: take a few minutes every single day to focus on yourself and to check in with your feelings. By simply walking, reading a self-help book or just checking in on her emotions, Arlene is able to quell the worry and the doubt that can so easily creep in. It also allows her to be more fulfilled and take better care of her family. A win-win, if you ask me!
