The Phoenix Zine

The Phoenix Zine is where Amy Mathers (Holly’s sister) blogs about issues relevant to people living with chronic illness. It provides a space to exchange thoughts, experiences and support to help you embrace your phoenix.

The phoenix is a mythological bird reborn from its own ashes when it dies. Dealing with chronic illness means rising from the ashes of the life you were ideally going to have, and having the courage to build a new life both sensitive to your medical needs and honouring to the fact you are not your illness.
