Lizzie Wilkinson is an artist who suffered a major stroke that severely impacted her speech and ability to use her hands, as well as other symptoms.

Over the last 2 years, @mslizzies.art focused on rehabilitating her hands by teaching herself how to draw, write and paint post-stroke, so she could get back to making art.

"I did everything I could think of as a replacement for physical therapy, and after a while it became apparent that Art WAS my physical therapy.

I've had to adapt a lot over the last 2 years - especially when it comes to my process. I've had to learn to be okay with less than perfection, and that it's okay to change your process to work for you, even if you've had that same process for years."

Swipe to see her journey from pre-stroke, stroke-recovery, to now ❤️ #MakerSpotlight

Debbie Friedlander has been creating and donating breast cancer pumpkins to breast cancer warriors, nonprofits and luncheons for the last 7 years.

Breast cancer has deeply touched her life in many ways. Her mother was just 29 when she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. Additionally, her sister died of breast cancer at 41 and her grandmother had postmenopausal breast cancer.

After testing positive for the BRCA1 gene, Debbie was considered high-risk for breast cancer. She chose to have a prophylactic double mastectomy, making her a breast cancer "pre-vivor".

"Each pumpkin I make is truly unique and made with love. I have made it my mission to not only raise awareness to breast cancer, but also lift people's spirits with my pumpkins in the process." #MakerSpotlight
