Nominations

Best Team Performance Best in Show: Community Lifetime Achievement Patient Leader Hero

I nominate Ms. Milly Velez for Patient Leader Hero for her work with the Fibromyalgia community. Fibro is a very misunderstood disease with little research and support. Having support from those within the community who want to help and empower their fellow fibro-warriors makes a big difference. Her non-profit aims to promote awareness.  — Skylar

Milly has created a great space on her website and Facebook for Fibromyalgia to connect, gain support and information about fibromyalgia. It is through her Facebook Page, Fibromyalgia Care Society of America, Inc, and website that people with fibromylagia can connect and find valuable resources to help them manage their chronic illness  — Kristal

Milly at Fibromyalgia Care Society of America (FCSA) works diligently to bring Fibromyalgia advocates together to continue her Fibromyalgia Awareness Walk (Catepillar Walk) & support the FCSA Center of Excellence which is the first COE for Fibromyalgia. Milly works in collaboration with many Fibro Leaders to promote FM support & Awareness in the US  — Kristal
