Welcome to The Awareness Expo the number one awareness gift and merchandise on the Internet
My name is May, In early 2000 I began waking up with severe pain throughout my body. Weeks passed, the pain persisted and I constantly felt fatigued, so I decided to go to the doctor. After months went by and a countless number of tests, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, a painful disorder that can be treated, but not cured. Over time I was given several medications to treat the pain, but nothing gave me relief.
I continued to see different medical specialists in hopes of answers to why my pain wasn’t manageable with the various treatments I had tried. In 2003 I was also diagnosed with Gout and then Lupus…another treatable yet incurable disease, and then once again in 2006 I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis, for a running total of 3 incurable chronic pain diseases. What did this mean? More trial and error medications to try and make my pain…my life “manageable”.
One of my biggest struggles was dealing with a multitude of issues every day that no one understood since, from the outside I looked normal and healthy, but inside I was in constant agony. In a quest to uncover answers to my personal health issues, I turned to the internet and began researching the diseases and came across others stories and suggestions. I found comfort knowing that I wasn’t alone in my feelings of frustration, others were suffering from these invisible illnesses and more.
My personal health struggles are what gave me the idea for The Awareness Expo. I wanted a way to spread the word and share story with something symbolic, so I created products that can be worn and visible to others…a symbol that doesn’t have to mean something to everybody, but to somebody could mean everything!
My vision is that others can either relate to and/or support those of us who suffer from these life threatening and debilitating diseases. In turn, a portion of the proceeds from each item sold is being donated to various areas of research in hopes of uncovering a cure.
