I am an advocate for Fibromyalgia and autoimmune diseases. Having Fibromyalgia and 3 autoimmune conditions myself, and finding it difficult to get a diagnosis I wanted to help raise awareness of these conditions. I run a very active Sjogren's Syndrome page on facebook, and also a monthly newsletter keeping people up to date with the latest research and trials. I have a blog and website about autoimmune diseases which focuses on giving reliable autoimmune information. In the fibromyalgia community I provide resources to help others promote Fibromyalgia awareness including the Fibro Blogger Directory, a weekly Fibromyalgia link up and a facebook group and a daily twitter feed.
This lady puts so much effort into her Fibro Blogger Directory Facebook page with endless posts to help other Fibro Bloggers. She is an inspiration to all her members. — Barbara

I am nominating Leeroy because this blog has drawn together a community of Fibro Bloggers and helped to give us a voice too. It is because of Lee's work promoting our blog posts that we add to the site that we are building a following too. Lee also works hard providing blogging ideas for us and building a community to support new Fibro Bloggers. — Susan
She runs a extremely helpful facebook page and newsletter about Sjogren's Syndrome. She moderates it daily. I would highly recommend this page as Lee is very active in the group which keeps it positive and information focussed. She is helpful at explaining complex medical jargon so I can understand it,
