Patient Leader

I am a retired Optometric tech thanks to many skeletal issues -I am patient leader ,blogger,author, founder of fb group Avascular Necrosis/Osteonecrosis Support Int'l and I use my diagnosis's to educate, motivate,and to encourage - I advocate for Osteoarthritis, Spondylolisthesis -Osteonecrosis, Hypothyroidism , Hashimoto's Disease.& Adrenal Fatigue Factor V Leiden After being diagnosed with Osteonecrosis in 2014 I found very little information on it . I made a commitment then I would raise awareness so anyone diagnosed would never feel afraid of the unknown as I did. I also for 25 years been a Domestic Violence Advocate Thank you for your support
