A Chronic Voice

Patient Leader

My name is Sheryl, and I look like your average human being. You’d probably not give a second glance should our paths cross on the street. But my body is in a bit of a mess. I have had a mini stroke at 14, multiple blood clots in the lungs and legs, a faulty heart rhythm, a gore-tex band for a heart valve, seizures, scars all over my body from various surgeries, and have never had a break from Lupus in over a decade, just to name a few. By sharing my experiences, I hope to reach out to those who are suffering to let them know that it is okay to feel depressed, sad or frustrated. Let us simply get through it together one day at a time, and if need be, one second at a time.

Sheryl was one of the first chronic illness writers I found online in Asia. She is active across many platforms and does a great job of educating her readers about her own illnesses. She also offers a strong support network for other patients with chronic illnesses by creating opportunities for us to share our stories on her site. Sheryl is a hero!  — name

Her blog & social media are consistently active with great articles, support, spreading awareness, and active interaction with others on social media. The nature of the blog and her articles in particular exude a positive perspective that's both inviting, comforting, relieving, and inspiring - all incredibly difficult things to sustain as she does!  — Patrick

AChronicVoice is always on top of her tweets and provides very insightful, informative, inspirational and relatable content!  — Effie
