Amber Blackburn - The World Sees Normal

Patient Leader

Patient Advocate, Chronic Illness Blogger and Founder of Facebook Support Group. I am an RN by trade but over the last few years I have transistioned into a role that I feel I was always meant to do! I have only been officially diagnosed with Lupus for 6 years however looking back my first big flare was probably when I was a teenager. Beaides Lupus I also suffer from a laundry list of other conditions, so I can relate to many. I feel like my most important role in life is to spread awareness, advocate for those who can’t and provide support for those who need it.
