Maribel ( Warrior LifeStyle)
I am the mother of two sons, married to my high school sweetheart, advocate and blogger at Warrior LifeStyle and Maribel's Kidney Story. I started writing at a very young age. It was my outlet and how I processed through things. I would never know how much I would need it as a young adult dealing with kidney failure and chronic illness. As I began to share my life saving journey, I saw that this was not only helping me but others. I have a wide range of experience working with Sierra Donor Services, Donate Life CA and Parent Teacher Association. Each area of work I am apart of has a deep and personal connection to me. It's something I can give because of my life experience. As a socially cautious consumer I like to promote companies that celebrate life, give inspiration and bring awareness and change.
"Warrior LifeStyle is about my love and fight for life through faith, family, friends, food, fashion, fun. The definition of warrior is a brave or experienced soldier or fighter. There are many fighting for life for different reasons. My mission at Warrior LifeStyle is to offer resources and product reviews, fashion, mindset, health and wellness information and suggestions. Products and services that supports a healthy lifestyle and is fashionably timeless. This blog was created in October 2016 with the goal to collaborate and inspire all warriors to keep living the best life they can."
Maribel’s Kidney Story was created in 2006. I couldn’t believe how long the wait time for an organ transplant was (especially for minority groups) and I knew I needed to do something. My advocacy started and as I continued to research and learn, I would start sharing. As time went on I began to dig deeper and share more about the struggles and hardships. This became an online documentation of over a decade fighting chronic illness in my 20’s and 30’s all while raising a family. I realized this blog is more than my kidney sto-ry; it’s about living life against adversity and continued redemption and the healing that is necessary for me to not just survive but thrive.
