Applauding: Jenna of The Feeding Edge

As you may know – we love celebrating Health Activist accomplishments! You work hard every day to do awesome things for the people in your health communities and are always raising awareness in new ways. It can be so uplifting to read a great blog post, see a new project come to fruition, and watch efforts make a difference. It’s why we do what we do – and why you should feel great about yourself.

Similarly – there’s nothing quite like seeing someone in your community get recognition for their work. A triumph for one Health Activist is a true triumph for Health Activism!

 

So today we wanted to give a shoutout to Health Activist for the AS community and advocate artiste – Jenna Visscher – for her hard work. We’re excited to share with everyone this article that features Jenna, her work, and how she’s doing big things for the AS community both on and offline.

 

The article in The Saturday Evening Post celebrates Jenna’s project to paint an apple a day (thus her community name!) to raise awareness and funds of the Spondylitis Association of America. As Jenna says in the article, “Apples symbolize that health and healing are possible despite dealing with a difficult and painful disease.”

 

It’s exciting to see Jenna (and her cool project) featured and see some facts about AS in there alongside her story to offer quick info that can open the eyes of readers who may be unaware of AS. Awareness!

 

We encourage you to check out the article to learn more and drop Jenna a tweet to let her know what you  think! Keep up the great work, Jenna!

 

If you haven’t yet – here’s a guest post Jenna wrote for the WEGO Health Blog this year. And be sure to check out her community The Feeding Edge and follow her on Twitter and Facebook.

    You rock Jenna! Thank you for all that you have done to raise awareness for the disease Ankylosing Spondylitis… A year long project which I know started well before and will in your mind never end because you are a true Ambassador for the cause! Well done…

    Congrats, Jenna!  Thanks for all your efforts to raise AS awareness.  I look forward to continue working with you in the future.  And congrats on the Apple-a-Day Art project, it’s a wonderful way to show that having a chronic illness does not have to be the end of one’s artistic creativity.
