While self-quarantined for the past four weeks to protect herself from the Coronavirus, Emily has tried to find ways to both occupy herself and make a difference for others. She started making masks for family members who were still having to go to work, from a large fabric stash her cousin gave her when she moved a few years ago. It quickly escalated, and now, Emily and her daughter have sewn and given away nearly 200 masks!
Due to myositis pain and fatigue, Emily takes lots of TV binge breaks, snack breaks, and only sews a little bit a day, but knowing she is helping keep others safer as they go out into this uncertain world makes the #MyositisQuarantineLIFE a little easier.
