Episode 39: Journey in Courage: Dealing with Auto-Immune Disease w/ Jeremy Paredes
Right before the height of the pandemic, Jeremy Paredes’s eczema, an auto-immune disease, became so severe that he was rushed to the ER in Septic Shock. A chronic skin condition that Jeremy grew up with became so unbearable that he felt as though there was no hope for him to get better.
Although Jeremy’s journey with eczema still continues, he is able to manage it better thanks to the help of some Heroes of Healthcare who saved his life.
In today’s episode, we speak to Jeremy Paredes, Student at Georgia Tech and Filmmaker, who agreed to come on the show to share his experience with eczema while juggling school, sports, and his passion for film.
