Today has been an incredibly exciting day for health advocates, but especially so for IBD and ostomy advocates! The 4th Annual WEGO Health Activist Award winners have been announced, and IBD advocates did extremely well!
I’m so happy to announce that I was given an award for “Best Kept Secret“!
Along with my award, Sara from Inflamed & Untamed and Megan “The Front Butt YouTuber” also won in other categories: Hilarious Activist Award and Best in Show: YouTube. Sara even walked away with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her many years of raising awareness and advocacy.
Big congrats to them both!
I want to thank all my supporters and fellow advocates – believe me, your praise, stories and encouragement have been the driving force for my advocacy, and there’s no way I could do this without your support.
A special thanks to Victoria Marie, co-founder of the #getyourbellyout campaign and founder of the Colitis and ME blog for her nomination. She’s a dear friend and fellow advocate, and I owe a large part of my success to her.
