The WEGO Health Awards  were created to celebrate those who tirelessly support the mission of WEGO Health to empower the patient voice.  With 16 award categories, the WEGO Health awards are the only awards across all conditions and platforms, that recognize the over 100 thousand inspiring Patient Leaders who raise awareness, share information and support their communities but often without recognition.

I want to thank those who nominated me and thought enough of my advocacy/awareness work to think of me for these awards. It means so much to be nominated because though I don’t do what I do in order to get anything from it; I appreciate being recognized for the work that I do. It means that the work that I do voluntarily to help the several communities that I am involved with, is not going unnoticed. Thank you so much for that.

I feel that I deserve the “Best in Show Blog” award because my blog, ‘Tears of Truth”, has become a large network and a plethora of information for patients who live with various illnesses that especially cause chronic pain. There are many resources and so much information here to address patients with various needs. I feel that I also deserve the “Best in Show Facebook” because I serve several different patient communities who live with chronic pain from various illnesses. I have created 6 chronic pain support groups and 2 ASL groups that support Deaf/Hard of Hearing community (including myself, as I am HoH). I try very hard to work closely with several different non-profits and I do not ask for anything in return. These awards, even just being nominated gives me that feeling of being appreciated.

This year, the 16 WEGO Health Award winners will be honored at an in-person celebration in Octoer, co-hosted by the Society of Participator Medicine at the Connected Health Conference. It is very important to me and I would really love to attentd this event to collaborate with industry leaders. Also, I would truly love to meet all of the people who I’ve been working with and talking with all of these years, since 2010 or so, when I first became a WEGO Patient Leader.

I’m now looking toward YOU, my incredibly supportive network to help endorse me for these two awards.  There are two easy ways to endorse me, (*Wordpress does not allow me to put a badge on this blog. Therefore the link is on the column to the upper right side of this blog (on a computer)…or you can easily choose the method below)….that will only take seconds of  your time, I promise! (I would love to be endorsed in both categories because they are equally important.

If I have ever supported you, made you laugh, given you inspiration  or cheered you on to keep fighting – please consider taking just a few seconds to endorse me for these awards. Thank you in advance, from my heart.

It’s WEGO Health awards Time Again!


Hello Luvs,

I’ve missed writing to you with that salutation! I’ve been writing so many of my posts as articles for the Ntl. Pain Report, that I’ve not had much chance to get close and personal with you!

I posted my newest American Sign Language video for you because June is PTSD Awareness Month.  This is the last day of June 2017, and I wanted the song “Concrete Angel” done in ASL to be posted for you.  It was to honor the time of year for PTSD Awareness and all of the abused children and people of the world! I don’t know if you’ve read any of my private posts or more posts towards the beginning of this blog? That’s where I have my posts about me being abused.  If you’d like to read about my journey and possibly the parts that are private, please just comment or message me and I’ll send you the password so that you can read all of the private posts!

I also want to let you know that this year once again, I’ve been nominated for a WEGO health award. I’m always very honored to be nominated. The only reason that I didn’t participate last year was due to the rule of having to ask people to vote for me daily on Social media. This year that’s not a requirement, so I will possibly ask you just a couple of times, to vote for me this year. Mostly I’m asking and very excited that We’ve been nominated for “Best in Show BLOG”!! I’m so excited about this because it’s about this blog and being nominated for an award! I’ve posted the link to vote for me on the menu to the right and I’ll post it here now again.  If you could find it in your heart and if you have a moment to vote; also if you enjoy this blog, please vote for this blog at:  https://awards.wegohealth.com/nominees and you may look for me by photo, name “Suzanne Stewart” or my Twitter handle @RASEforCRPS.  Thank you so much !! Also please feel free to share my nomination so that others may also vote for this blog! 

I won’t ask you again to vote for us, on my blog. I may post on twitter or Facebook and ask people to vote a couple of times. I’m grateful for anything! Again I bow to you and say “thank you!” 

Sincerely,

Suzanne Stewart
