Who is Madhu Vyas?

Madhu Vyas, 65 years old, was born and brought up in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. Madhu is a trained Sitarist but chose to be a homemaker (34 years). Proud mother of 2 amazing children.

In her late 50s, she suffered bone problems and pains. She was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, which is an autoimmune disease affecting connective tissue like bones. Her treatment which involved regular medication was started immediately.

Eventually, Madhu started feeling suffocated and shortness of breath.

After consulting many doctors and struggling for years was diagnosed with Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) due to which her lungs were negatively affected.

Walking even within the home became difficult and there were multiple episodes of hospitalization for exacerbations.

Since 2017, Madhu has been on oxygen therapy (24 hours a day). Doctors have prescribed her to use oxygen support even while walking, sleeping, eating, bathing, everything! She started feeling dependent and inadequate. The pain of breathlessness and the after-effects of low oxygen in the body overpowered her life.

Moreover, Madhu suddenly lost her husband in the year 2018. He was a great pillar of strength and her primary caregiver. Between frequent hospital visits and the loss of her better half. She lost all hope in life.

With the grace of the Almighty, her willpower, dedication, and her children’s support, she somehow managed to bounce back. She worked upon herself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. With a consistent and never-give-up attitude, she improved her quality of life along with her family.

Currently, she efficiently manages her health challenges and lives a good quality and fulfilling life. She has immense compassion and understanding for others going through a similar situation to her.

This inspired her to initiate the Breathing Warrior Movement.

Madhu visualizes a world with good quality & purposeful life with respect, dignity, and love for everyone irrespective of their medical/health conditions.

No physical incapacity can limit the power of the human spirit.
