SpoonieStrong

Patient Leader

Childhood cancer survivor and chronic illness warrior, Stephanie Wilson started her blog SpoonieStrong after her 30 year journey for a diagnosis. Diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2013, Stephanie reached out for support and found the Spoonie community on Tumblr. Wanting to contribute more and foster a sense of family, SpoonieStrong was born. SpoonieStrong incorporates the many aspects of chronic illness life, while providing humor, support, advice and health information. Stephanie has been innovative in her SpoonieStrong feature posts -- starting "SpoonieStrong Selfie Saturday" which encourages Spoonies to share pictures of themselves and celebrate their accomplishments.
