I am honoured to say that I’ve been nominated for the WEGO Health Awards 2018!
These awards recognise patient leaders who are making an impact with their advocacy work, especially in the online community. It provides the opportunity for community members to thank and support the advocates they follow and find helpful.
As many of you know already, I work nonstop in advocating for better awareness, diagnosis and treatment of hypothyroidism and all its related health conditions and when I say that I am passionate about giving thyroid patients a voice and helping as many as possible, I really do mean it. It’s my passion and what gets me out of bed on my own tough thyroid days.
Keeping authenticity and raw honesty behind my work, I am always open about my own thyroid journey and this is what makes The Invisible Hypothyroidism so unique. I work tirelessly but never get tired of being an advocate.
I was extra pleased to be informed that I’ve been nominated for more than one award too and have now been asked by the WEGO Award organisers to turn to my community to ask you to take a second to endorse me.
Endorsements are a way to give nominees a visual show of support and so by taking a second to endorse me, you’re supporting my nomination for the award, making it more likely that I’ll then go through as a finalist. You have until the 17th August to endorse me and can endorse me for each of the awards I currently stand for.
