Congrats to our Executive Director, Melissa Talwar, for winning the Advocacy Trailblazer award for the recent Social Health Awards!
This was very much an unexpected win, but a tremendous honor. There were so many great advocates in the same category, a couple of them mentored us here at Support Fibro. Celebrating Veteran Voices For Fibromyalgia founder, Kristal Kent for her win. Great things ahead for the fibromyalgia community! Cheers to all the amazing finalist friends like Tiffany from Rise Above Epilepsy and Candace from Rare Candace. (They are honestly the biggest winners in advocacy and have been trailblazing to help the rest of us!)

The Advocacy Trailblazer category celebrates the patients and caregivers who, despite managing a health condition, manage to push the limits and pave a new path for others on how to educate, raise awareness, and support their fellow community. These are the individuals bringing innovation to advocacy.
Thank you to everyone who supported these awards and all the fibromyalgia advocates trailblazing a path forward for the community. We couldn’t do it with out!
