Ken McKim

Patient Leader

My wife has Crohn's disease. Over the past few years I have come to realize that there are an increasing number of people who look upon the chronically ill unfavorably. This inspired me to make my first video, a recording of my 32-minute live presentation called "The Slow Death of Compassion for the Chronically Ill" which highlights the challenges that the chronically ill face every day. Then, to explain what different kinds of chronic pain feel like, I created the "Feel This Pain" series, touching on subjects like RSD/CRPS, Crohn's, Fibromyalgia, Cluster Headaches and others. My goal is to help society regain its compassion for those who suffer every day through no fault of their own.
