Without the Power of Pain Foundation and the things Barby and Ken have created I would not be getting the treatment and be with the doctors that I am with. She has motivated me and made me realize even with a chronic disease, life is worth living to the fulliest. She is a true hero, motivator and inspiration. Thank you Barby!  — Barby

She is an amazing woman leading a movement to help a community fighting for a cure.  — Barby

I nominate Barby Ingle, because she goes Above & Beyond to raise Awareness for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy "RSD". Myself & my 15 year old daughter who also suffers with RSD had the pleasure of meeting Barby Ingle at the Quench The Fire Run 2013. Barby Ingle was very kind to us. My daughter was having pain that day & meeting Barby made my daughter smile.  — Sophie

Barby is a true hero, fighting daily to keep patients fighting chronic neuropathic pain disorders on the path to living a life of happiness and success.

Barby is the one of the most active Facebook users I know. She has 5000 friends and takes pride in sharing things of importance along with feel good things. She takes time to care about and respond to those that are having difficult times. Barby just wants to give her knowledge and experience to those that will listen and take what she has to offer to help themselves. Facebook has allowed Barby to bring awareness to the pain condition called RSD and how she has found remission from this painful condition. Congratulations to Barby for a job well done and to keep up the great work.  — Barby

I am nominating Barby because she's a cheerleader of health.

Barby has been living with RSD since 2002. Barby & her family created the Power of Pain Foundation in 2006 & now they are know as the International Pain Foundation.

Barby is amazing on Facebook and other social media platforms. She uses her personal profile as a hub for conversation and community. She is a master at using the opportunity to reach more people than most are able and teach them about chronic pain challenges and tools to have better daily living. She shows us all how facebook is used for good.  — Ken

Barby posts blogs on chronic pain and life issues on her blog and so many check in to see what she has to say. She knows the value of sharing her story and how it makes a difference in her life and others to do so. She also encourages others to share their story. The more we share the more we learn. She has great info, awareness and life goals.  — Ken

Barby became an advocate for herself and others because of it taking about 3 years and 43 providers before the right provider was able to help. On average it takes 6 providers to get chronic pain issues correctly diagnosed & even more to get proper treatment. What do you do in the meantime, many like myself follow Barby's voice to change the system

Barby is great at key phrasing and getting her points across in short amazing 140 charter messages. From Motivation Monday to sharing links to important research studies she connects with others and raises awareness just by tweeting. She knows to keep it varied in message from informative to motivational and loves doing topic specific twitter chats

Barby is great at sharing through graphics and photos the challenges and life experiences through Instagram. From telling her story, sharing others stories, events in the pain community to exploring tips and tools for better living, Barby does a great job putting a logical extension onto the visual medium to connect the chronic pain community!

As an official YouTube partner, Barby has combined a bit of offline activism w her online videos. She covers education, awareness, social events, live broadcasts, and even iPainPOP projects. She has the 'nerve to be heard' and seen and encourages others to use this platform in a way that recognizes the chronic pain community in valuable life tools.

Barby never fails to keep up on ideas, tips and tricks through Pinterest. From spotlighting the NERVEmber project, one of her greatest accomplishments, to general chronic pain information, the iPain Featurettes, and more, Barby covers it. The sentimental reminders, research, specific disease condition information, She helps paint the world ORANGE!
