Yesterday I received a Tweet informing me that I had been nominated for one of the WEGO Health Activist Awards!

I was so surprised and excited and couldn't wait to find out more! I clicked on the link provided and was directed to the WEGO Health site where I had to set up my Nomination Profile. I did this and, as most of you know already, I started spreading the word asking for support.

It sounds so corny, but it's really true - I am honored that I was nominated. Often here in cyberspace we are not really sure how much of an impact we are having in what we do; my Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Blogging, Pinterest efforts - I really am never quite sure how many people are seeing them or if I am having an impact. To have someone take the time to nominate me made me feel like I am making a difference and people are paying attention. I was so touched and appreciative.

I know I have reached out to many of you to go to the website to my Nomination Profile and Endorse me. But you can do more to help me. If you scroll down a little bit, you'll see a link that says "Add Your Nomination". If anyone feels that my efforts are deserving, it would mean the world to me if you would not only Endorse me, but also add your own Nomination. It doesn't take long at all (some family members have done it and it takes less than a minute if you know what you want to say). 

Here is the link to my WEGO Health Activist Awards Nomination Profile where you can add your own Nomination and Endorse me. I hope some who follow me will take a few moments to do this; it truly would mean the world to me.

Whether you take the time to Nominate or Endorse me, I still want to say a big THANK YOU to all who continue to encourage and support my IC Advocacy efforts. Without all of you supporting me, I could not do what I do. 


  1. I just stumbled upon your blog from twitter.. I also have an IC-blog though it is more focused on recipes. I love the view you take on your blog- real yet positive and inspiring:) Thanks for being such a bright face in the IC world. I endorsed you on that page, and I have added you to my IC blog List on my site. Thanks for all you do! :)
