Motivation and Inspiration:

  • The Ugly Dress is a metphor for chronic illness. The theme of our work is, “If you have to wear an ugly dress, learn to accessorize.” “Accessories” are attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors embedded in our life management strategies that allow us to live healthy, happy lives in spite of illness.
