My name is Carrie and I've been blogging about chronic illness since 2009. MSW provides information for other chronically ill patients, patient support, and I engage in patient advocacy across many platforms. Your kind and generous donation is used towards site maintenance fees ($120/yr) and my medical bills which are over $1,200US a month now. My illnesses have shaped my worlds and have inspired me to support other patients. Please help me make a difference in the lives of other patients while helping to support my own medical bills and site fees.
