State: California
Chronic Condition: Interstitial Cystitis

My goal as an advocate is to educate and raise awareness. I want to shape future health policies, so the necessary changes can be made. It took over 10 years to be diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis and receive the help I needed. Chronic pain affects 50 million Americans. It is misunderstood and underfunded. I want to break the stigma and have a seat at the table where all our voices can be heard.
