Julie Cerrone

Patient Leader

Just because it's a bad day doesn't mean you have a bad life! Living with a chronic illness can be hard, but with a little support from #spoonie friends, inspiration and motivation to make lifestyle changes, you can live your best life! You deserve it! I'm a holistic health coach, living with an autoimmune disease (psoriatic arthritis), avascular necrosis (left knee), complex regional pain syndrome and have had depression, anxiety and melanoma in the past. Others helped me along my health care journey and now I feel honored to be able to give back.

I am nominating Julie Cerrone because she is constantly promoting advocacy for those suffering with chronic illnesses. Whether is be giving tips to help others be healthier and eat well, to calling out Airlines and big businesses for wrong treatment to those with disabilities. Julie will be a voice for all of us for years to come!  — Summer
