YOUR HEALTH STORY MATTERS

How sharing your story can help others looking for hope

“I just want people to know how much I love this site. It meant so much to me to read the stories!!!!” 

“These communities have saved me. Seriously.” 

“Hello, I am new here and so happy to know there is somewhere I can go that people will understand…”

These are just a few examples of the kind of messages Inspire receives from our members on a daily basis. Across communities and conditions, people on Inspire are finding hope, inspiration, and information in the stories that you share.
