WEGO Health Awards Nominations

One early morning in June, I woke up to the buzz of my phone, and let’s be honest, probably to my buzzing bladder telling me to take a pee!

To my surprise, it was an email notifying me that 

I had just been nominated for a 2020 WEGO Health Award 

for the pelvic health advocacy work I do on The Happy Pelvis blog and Instagram!

You can check out my pelvic pain journey + story in this blog post.

I’m so honoured and incredibly grateful to be nominated for these multiple categories:

Best in Show: Instagram

Advocating of Another

What the community is saying:

“Michelle is an amazing, patient and genuine advocate. She is constantly working with her love of art to bring awareness to Endometriosis! I couldn’t be prouder to call her a friend! ”

If I have ever helped or supported you in some way, I would be honoured to get endorsed by you!

Being an advocate takes a lot of effort and hard work, especially when you live with chronic pelvic pain and multiple chronic illnesses. Despite our health setbacks, we keep pushing to spread awareness and provide helpful resources for others struggling. It’s our own personal health journey and experiences that lead us to instigate the change needed in healthcare.

That is exactly what we want to celebrate.

Thanks to the WEGO Health Awards, now we can!

Small victories, like these nominations, can give us advocates a sense of purpose and a lift to our chronically fatigued spirits. By being recognized, it allows us to know that our efforts are being seen and are appreciated.
