Natalie van Scheltinga - The Unchargeables

Patient Leader

Natalie is the founder of The Unchargeables an online chronic illness support group. The goal of The Unchargeables is to let people know that they are not alone in their struggles and provide 24/7 emotional support. She can't do it alone though! The community is run by a small army of volunteers who make sure that the community stays active and there is always someone online to offer support. We call ourselves Chargie's. In the shop we offer a broad selection of disease specific awareness products. Shirts and other products with slogans that show on the outside how you feel inside. Every month we host a giveaway of $100 shop credit, so everybody has an equal chance to own Chargie gear.
