The Story

The Phoenix Pages began to fill the needs Amy had when she was in heart failure at the age of 25 to find a way to organize her medical information, manage her lifelong chronic illness, and still feel like a person.  She asked her counsellor sister, Holly, to help.  Together Holly and Amy developed the first version of The Phoenix Pages.  Amy used the pages in her daily life and they added more sections as needed.  Finally, The Phoenix Pages began to look like something that other people living with a chronic illness could benefit from.  Holly and Amy created explanations for each section and made The Phoenix Pages into a tool that anyone could use to manage their own illness and live their life.
