Keisha Greaves, diagnosed with Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD) at the age of 24, is living her life on her own terms. Admittedly, it took her some time to come to terms with her diagnosis but after having done so it allowed her to refocus and move forward in the pursuit of her career dreams in the fashion industry.
Born and raised in Cambridge, Massachussetts, Keisha graduated from Framingham State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design and Merchandising. She went on to obtain her Master’s degree in Business Management from Cambridge College.
During this time, while pursuing a higher education she noticed certain oddities in her balance and in her ability to perform certain physical tasks. After undergoing numerous medical tests to determine the cause, she finally received the LGMD diagnosis. Determined not to let LGMD deter her from her goals, Keisha adapted and learned new ways to continue on her path in the fashion industry.
Now a fashion designer, Keisha has her own adaptive wear clothing line called Girls Chronically Rock. She is also a motivational speaker and has been recognized by Massachussetts Governor Charlie Baker for her efforts in having September 30th proclaimed as Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Day.
