About Patrice Sterling

Patrice Sterling wants to help make your caregiving experience better. She is an Advocate Mom, certified empowerment coach, and an influential care strategist. From exasperated mom to empowered caregiver, speaker, and mentor, her perseverance and determination have inspired many to find their voices. Faith and family fuel her and caring for her only son, born with Sickle Cell Disease, (SCD) drives her passion for pediatric advocacy often encouraging other parents to “challenge the experts and never give up.”


Patrice’s calling to advocate for children was birthed out of her personal need to speak up for her child. Her superpower is taking what she has learned, about SCD, over a 20-year span, to equip families and caregivers with tools to impact the care of their young warriors.


She is the best-selling author of Taking My Life Back: A Family’s Story of Triumph from Transplant to Transformation, and the founder of Patrice Sterling Unlimited, LLC, which strives to put the care back into caregiving. She loves God, enjoys spending time with her husband and children, leading Praise and Worship at church, and family game nights.

Patrice has served on both the Pediatric Patient and Family Advisory Council and the Patient Care Delivery Committee for one of the largest Non-profit Health Care Systems in the United States.
