Fibromyalgia Pathways has partnered with the national organization National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association, a non-profit organization supporting those with fibromyalgia and other chronic pain illnesses.    This is a great organization that is working with local businesses and organizations to raise awareness and funds for integrative treatments and to educate our community on this illness.

Please join us at the State Capitol on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at 9:30 am to walk together to show our community that we are strong, determined, deserve their respect and understanding.  Look for more details as we get closer to this special event.

She will also discuss her thoroughly sourced “healthcare provider guide” that helps patients work with their doctors. 

“Most of us know what we should; it’s doing it that’s the hard part.” TAMI STACKELHOUSE, founder of International Fibromyalgia Coaching Institute, helps women with fibromyalgia break free from the prison their bodies have become, restore their strength and health, and finally live the lives they’ve just been dreaming of. 

About the Organizers

My name is Terry McSweeney, leader and organizer of the Sacramento Fibromyalgia Awareness Walk.  I also am a very proud “fibromyalgia warrior” who has learned to be my own best advocate taking control of my own medical care.  I have become a fibromyalgia adviser and lead the Sacramento Support Group.  My goal by leading this walk, raising awareness and funds is to educate and raise funds so that more people across our country can learn to be their own best self-advocates.

My co-chair is Martha Aranda who also is a “fibromyalgia warrior.”  Together with all of our walkers in 2017 we raised in cash and in-kind donations nearly $7000.  Please help us exceed that in 2018.

    There are a lot of reasons to help this walk, but one reason I find is that we all have one condition that we share. It is called the “human condition.” We all have a “caring condition” whether we find it within ourselves early on in life or later, we all care about something. This is what Terry has found himself caring about. Actually, all the leaders of all the walks have found themselves caring about this at a very deep level. So when you find yourself caring about THIS cause, please remember that the leaders are caring at a very deep and personal level for this cause with you. So dig deep and join in the fundraising and friend-finding cause of this event!
