Did you know women are statistically more likely to be diagnosed with multiple chronic illnesses than men? Many of the diagnoses represented in the Mighty Well community are disproportionately experienced by women — including lupus, endometriosis, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Yet despite these high numbers of women experiencing chronic health setbacks, research shows that they are routinely dismissed for their symptoms and pain. The dismissive nature of our medical system creates issues with self-confidence, increased feelings of isolation, and a need for trust and community.
Thankfully, our Mighty Well Brand Ambassadors are up for the task of fighting isolation and building community! This month, we introduce you to three of our new Ambassadors all of whom intimately understand the experiences of women living with chronic illness and use their voices to support others and provide a much needed sense of community.
