Kristen Kirk

Patient Leader

I’m a Fibromyalgia patient, fighting daily to balance those effects on my life. I define myself in many ways, but fibro is always an undercurrent. My hope is to inspire others, battling invisible illness, to live lives of courage and kindness. Sharing tools for a mindful life allows me to show others struggling with chronic pain how to live to their fullest. Travel is my passion and an important part of my self-care plan. I'm fighting chronic illness one adventure at a time.
