She is a mom and a wife. She spends most of her time caring for her daughter who has Cystic Fibrosis leading her to help fundraise thousands of dollars for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Sylvia also has Lupus. She says “Having Lupus is a blessing – it gives me a reason to fight for self-love and nourishment. It gives me a reason to love green smoothies and exercise because that is what helps me maintain a medication-free lifestyle. Having a daughter with Cystic Fibrosis makes me live each and every day showing gratitude, expressing optimism & having faith. I have learned how to love even harder!”
