Here I catch up with Juliana Fetherman, 24, who was inspired by her brother to help those with special needs make friends.

So many of us have been feeling extremely isolated during this pandemic. My guest, Juliana Fetherman knows that feeling alone on a daily basis is common for some. Her brother, Michael has both autism and ADHD, and struggles with the interpersonal skills necessary for forming friendships and even holding conversations. Juliana realized she wanted to create something to help him and others with special needs form friendships. She created a new app called Making Authentic Friendships, or MAF. Listen in and hear how a sister's love for her brother is helping spread kindness throughout the world. Hugs, Lorri

About Lorri Carey

On Friday the 13th, February 2004 at the age of 37, I was told I have ALS. I’m dying from ALS, yet I’m so encouraged to live life to the fullest. I’ve been inspired by so much to stay focused on the positive. I’m dying to tell you about what gives me strength, makes me smile and keeps me hopeful – in hopes of inspiring you too!
