All Ages

When Fibromyalgia happens at younger ages it can be frustrating and very isolating. Much of the information found online does not apply to children and young adults, or it is outdated in light of newer research. Our goal is to clear up this confusion and increase local resources by creating a school advocates program, provide mentorship and health coaching, and increase training for parents in advocacy roles.

Program Overview


Create information packets for schools, support groups, and providers.


Develop a program with school advocates, coaching, and mentorship.


Provide education and training regarding advocacy efforts.

Awareness Is Needed

We still need public awareness campaigns, treatments, and education so that no matter the age of diagnosis you are treated with compassion and find a team of health professionals that will guide you towards wellness. We are looking to expand this program to include school and youth advocates, college campus events, health coaching for the individual and their family, workshops, and other supportive services.
