WEGO Heath Award
It is exciting to be nominated for the WEGO Health Best in Show – Blog & Rookie of the Year Awards in the 2018 WEGO Health Awards.
WEGO Health is a mission-driven company connecting healthcare with the experience, skills, and insights of patient leaders. They are the world’s largest network of patient leaders, working across virtually all health conditions and topics. Click here to learn more about their Patient Leader Network.
The WEGO Health Awards are created to celebrate those who tirelessly support the mission of WEGO Health: to empower the patient voice.
With 16 award categories, the WEGO Health Awards are the only awards across all conditions and platforms, that recognise the over 100 thousand inspiring Patient Leaders who raise awareness, share information, and support their communities – but often without recognition.
Thank you to Heather (of Dinosaurs, donkeys and MS) who nominated me for this award. This is the start of my second year blogging and I thought it could take a long time for my voice to be heard among all the fantastic blogs about Multiple Sclerosis and Chronic Illness. July 2017 was when I started and in July 2018 I reached a milestone of 1,000 monthly views of this blog. This award is another milestone as it signifies that my community recognises what I am doing.
In this time I have shared how I have learned to live my life with gratitude for all that I have, choosing to put in second place thinking about what I have lost. It is difficult. But it does bring peace into my life. It is my aspiration the readers of this blog will see my journey and it will help them.
This year, the 16 WEGO Health Award winners will be honoured at an in-person celebration in October co-hosted by the Society of Participatory Medicine at the Connected Health Conference. I’m now looking to my incredibly supportive network to help endorse me for this award. There are two easy ways to endorse that only take seconds of your time!
