Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks and showing our love to the ones we appreciate the most. Even after one week holiday, we are still feeling especially thankful for our lovely brand ambassadors! Our Mighty Well community is really something special, giving every spoonie an outlet to know they are not alone and a constant reminder they are stronger than their diagnoses. We wanted to take a moment to put our Mighty Well ambassadors in the spotlight as they are such an inspiration to all. Here’s a look at some of the things our ambassadors are Mighty Grateful for!
“Although my year has been extremely rocky and I’ve lost hope a couple times, I’m forever grateful for the amount of support, love, and kindness I’ve received. Without the chronic illness community and close ones, I don’t know how I would have made it through the year like I did.”
“This year I’m thankful for my family for supporting me through tough times. I’m thankful for my health holding up enough to be able to have gone on my gap year trip and to have been able to start college and start a new chapter of my life. I’m thankful for all of the new friends that I’ve made and that I hope to grow closer to”
“I’m soooo grateful for my feeding tube. I wasn’t sure I would be able to go to university but my feeding tube gave me the ability to go to university and be able to pursue my dream career. And my mighty well backpack makes it even easier to go to classes and be a seemingly normal university student”
“I am ever thankful for friends who understand both the challenges of living with a rare disease and the importance of the Great British Bake Off. Additionally, it is wonderful to have people on my medical team who truly listen and are willing to learn. Last (but not least), I am thankful for cuddles with my furry friend!
“I’m Mighty Thankful for my family and friends who stick by me. A year ago today, I was in the hospital fighting for my life, I didn’t know what to expect but my family was there right by my side supporting and cheering me on as I made my way through an unknown time. I am sooo thankful to be able to be home with my family and friends this year”
I’m thankful to God, he wakes me up every morning and blesses me. I’m also thankful for my family. Especially my mom, sister, grandpa, and I can’t forget about my dogs. They are my support and I’m who I am because of them. Lastly, I’m thankful for the people who follow me on my platforms, because they give me something to fight for and remind that I need to be a voice for others.
