Celebrities with fibromyalgia:
- Morgan Freeman
- Janeane Garofalo
- Michael James Hastings
- Sinead O’Connor
- Florence Nightingale
- And more!
It would be a step forward to have a celebrity with fibromyalgia talk about the illness and be the spokesperson. This would encourage more open talks about the illness and spread its awareness.
There are many people living with this chronic illness that do not talk about it due to embarrassment, lack of knowledge, or other reasons. We, the fibromyalgia community, need to encourage those to talk about it and know they have support.
