Through our own individual experiences we have the ability to inspire others. Writing and sharing your own personal story of how you have overcome the challenges of living with a chronic illness can be a very profound experience for the storyteller and for those reading.
Read about some of our Everyday Heroes and why not consider telling us about your story.
Sharing your story could change someone's life.
