Fibromyalgia Awareness Day 2016

This post may contain affiliate links but at NO extra costs to you. For further details, please read my full disclosure policy.

May is Fibromyalgia Awareness month, and May 12th is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. This is the time of the year that people, all around the globe, raise awareness for fibromyalgia and chronic pain through fundraising events, personal stories, online campaigns, and other ways. The funds raised during this time help to further research of the illness in order to one day find a cure. Educating others about this invisible illness is vital to reaching awareness, understanding, and, eventually, a cure.

In late 2013 I decided to start chronicling my ups, downs, and in betweens of fibromyalgia in hopes of reaching out and connecting with others suffering from fibromyalgia. My mission of Being Fibro Mom is to help fibromyalgia sufferers become fibromyalgia thrivers. This is accomplished through the various resources and articles available on my site.

Each year at Being Fibro Mom, various fibromyalgia organizations (national and international), chronic illness bloggers, and national online companies come together to promote fibromyalgia awareness through personal stories, informative articles, campaigns, product awareness, and giveaways.
