Melissa Hogan

Tagline: Lawyer by profession. Writer by passion. Advocate by necessity.

Biography: I've always been a writer, whether it was legal briefs, songs, or blogs to inform or inspire our rare disease community. I seek to encourage parents who are wrestling with the challenges of rare disease, special needs, or just the day-to-day questions of faith. I am the author of a book about medical trauma in children as well as several medical research articles in the rare disease field, in addition to blogging and running a nonprofit - ProjectAlive.org. I live south of Nashville and enjoy country living with my husband Chris and three boys.
