Best Kept Secret Best in Show: Blog Best in Show: Twitter Advocating for Another


Rookie of the Year

Ross is an amazing support for those living with chronic pain. His blog details his live living with CRPS and other conditions which cause him pain. It's a breath of fresh air and always takes some positive swing on the hardships of his conditions. He's always willing to reach out and give support on twitter as well. He's an all around wonderful guy

Ross has been an incredible supporter, friend, and encouragement to so many people within the #ChronicPain community. There is no way we will ever be able to repay him for the fearless advocacy he shows day in and day out.

Ross is truly one of the kindest people I know. He is a tireless advocate for CRPS and chronic pain conditions while providing emotional support for his loved-ones at home. Even his presence online shows a man with compassion and true empathy, and it shines through the chronic illness community like a beacon. Ross truly makes the world better.  — Gabrielle

Ross is a great person, advocate, supporter and friend! His support and positive attitude go a long way in helping so many people feel appreciated and cared for.  — Barby
