I learned about GWG on Social Media a few years ago.
I have wanted to do something with GWG for a long while now. I love what all the organization does for patients.
When I saw the needing volunteer posts- I had to try. I really liked the thought about helping out with the FB group.
I do quite a bit of volunteer work with my local CCF chapter. I also run my own IBD support group locally. I paint rocks that raise awareness for IBD, and hide/gift them. I help patients online, and people also connect me with patients to help them with their journey. I’m home majority of the time taking care of my health. I’m very passionate about helping others like me. I’m thankful that I can do volunteer work now. I wasn’t able to when I was working. My husband is very supportive of my volunteer work, and wants me to be able to stay at home to focus on my health. I like spending time with family and my fur babies. I also enjoy bird watching, and being in nature.
