All proceeds from the HESA store purchases go to projects such as symposium, raising awareness in the medical communities and the hopes for further research on Hashimoto's Encephalopathy and other forms of autoimmune encephalitis.


the FACES of HE



Maddy Boehme

Diagnosed 2014

Since her sophomore year of high school, Maddy began to experience strange symptoms. An honor student and active with her friends these symptoms kept her from the typical enjoyments of her teenage years. At 19 and a freshman in college, she pushed on with difficulty. After getting her diagnosis, the HE had been taking everything out of her affecting every aspect of her life. Finally,  getting infusions, her health improved. Still fighting symptoms she began speaking about her experience at many different places advocating about  Hashimoto's Encephalopathy. Maddy has volunteers for HESA, she and her family work hard to support HESA in so many ways helping other HE survivors as well as in other AE and rare disease communities.
