Bernadette Saddik is a student at Santa Clara University double majoring in Mechanical and Bioengineering. She was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease and co-infections in August 2012. She can be seen on the Santa Clara University campus with an IV bag, but is determined not to let the debilitating symptoms of her chronic illness commandeer her life.
She is the Co-Founder of The Glass Ball Foundation: an organization that is dedicated to providing solutions-centric financial support to those in chronic pain.
Bernadette looks forward to becoming healthy again and resuming the activities that she loves, including ocean kayaking, tennis, playing bass guitar, and contributing to her health blog.
