"Every problem that the country faces is being solved in some community by some group or some individual. The question is how to get connected so that the whole nation can solve problems. A volunteer is a person who can see what others cannot see; who can feel what most do not feel. Often, such gifted persons do not think of themselves as volunteers, but as citizens — citizens in the fullest sense; partners in civilization."

President George H.W. Bush

Fighting Fibromyalgia Together

The Fibromyalgia Coalition is asking for your help! We are looking for people with fibro, their family, friends, co-workers and healthcare professionals to help bring the fibromyalgia community together through education, awareness, support and advocacy.

Fibromyalgia patients are often misunderstood, misdiagnosed, misinformed and misled. We are also often overmedicated and undernourished, caught in the revolving door of today's healthcare system with no place to turn.

We all have the power to make a difference in this world. Through volunteerism, we can find our purpose and create meaningful change.

FCI offers many ways to jump in and create change in your community! Following are a few thoughts to inspire you.

Fibro Patients, Family and Friends:

  • Hold an Awareness Day event
  • Lead a support group
  • Distribute literature at health fairs
  • Hold a fibro walk in your area
  • Other (What inspires you to serve?)

Healthcare Professionals:

  • Write articles for the FCI newsletters
  • Serve as a Medical Advisor
  • Speak at a fibromyalgia event
  • Other (What inspires you to serve?)

By giving of your time and talent, you're creating opportunities for fibromyalgia patients to receive the support they need. People from diverse backgrounds and experiences are needed to "help pave the way for a world without fibromyalgia"!

Volunteers are welcome throughout the year, so don't wait until Fibromyalgia Awareness Day or the holiday season before offering a helping hand. Let's get started!
