Carrie Kellenberger

Patient Leader

I've been a chronic illness advocate since 2009. I'm a Canadian expat living in Taiwan with Ankylosing Spondylitis, Fibromyalgia, and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, among other health issues. I write about my illnesses and advocacy work on many health sites, including my site, My Several Worlds, a Best Blog for Fibromyalgia in 2018. I am a patient leader and captain of The Walking Spondies for Walk Your AS Off. I'm also a Founding Director for Walk AS One, a 501c3 non-profit in the US. Living life passionately with limitations from chronic illness takes more than many of us might have to give. My illnesses have shaped my worlds and have inspired me to support others in similar situations.
