Do we really need to stand for this???

Yes!!! Off course!!! Fibro is with us!!It's a Fibro frog!!!

All know that OA is the most common arthritis affecting so many peoples in US, but who holds the second position. It's Fibromyalgia-the second most common ailment affecting the musculoskeletal system disease.  It is estimated by American College of Rheumatology in 2004 that approximately 1 in 50 Americans is estimated to have fibromyalgia.

  1. Awareness is really a best thing done!!! My GF has M.E and I’m standing for her and for all those who have this type of chronic illness.

  2. From about 12 years I’m fighting along with doctors against F.M.

  3. My father is 68 year old, He has Fibro. He is really week and can’t do her own work. Still we want to join the event.

  4. When I mom went through the initial testing it showed that she had Epstein Barr Virus, then Chronic Fatigue and then diagnosed with ME/Fibromyalgia.

  5. Nobody knows I they feel, only the people that are sick, know my feeling of living with Fibro.

  6. We all were standing on this day. Just for the people who have this disease.

  7. I just want to say that even a small contribution will make a huge difference.
