BENEFITING: NATIONAL FIBROMYALGIA ASSOCIATION
I've come to the realization that not many people know what fibromyalgia is and I want to change that starting today! It's often called the "invisible illness" because like many say "you don't look sick" but you most definitely feel it! When I was diagnosed last year and began explaining to my friends and family, I realized a lot of people had never even heard about it. Especially not in the hispanic community. I wanted to join an organization or foundation in order to spread awareness and increase funding on fibromyalgia research because there is so much more that is yet to be figured out about this illness. Hell, even auto correct says it doesn't exist! I know my journey will be long but I will make it my number one priority to help bring fibromyalgia awareness so that people suffering from this invisible illness can have more resources, treatments, support groups and why not maybe even a cure!
