Patient Leader Hero

Dawn is a brave soul & fearless leader who has accomplished MUCH in the past 5 years alone. She was one of the 1st patient advocates I ever followed on Twitter & remember participating in her founded "Spoonie Chat" as often as I could. I was 16ish at the time & adjusting to life with juvenile arthritis was lonely. To this day, we remain friends. <3  — Kenzie
