Yes that feature image is of cupcakes- funfetti cupcakes to be exact. Baked with love by our Content Curation Manager Rebekah to celebrate!
On June 22, 2015 Patient Worthy was launched to help bridge the gap between the rare disease community, and relevant information and news. Before our one year birthday, we were named one of PM360’s 2015 Innovators and won Gold for Consumer Website. On Friday, PW Published its one thousandth post!
“Excellent website for those with #RareDisease patientworthy.com” #Rare #Gastroparesis #iiwk15 #InvisibleFight @PatientWorthy –Melissa VanHouten (@melissaarvh)
If we are not learning to live with a chronic illness or rare disease ourselves, we are loving or working with someone who is.
Since inception, our mission has been to find, create, share and promote content worthy of patients. Through education, awareness and a touch of humor, we aim to help people live with their chronic conditions and not just through them.

To date we have had over 50 patients reach out to share their experience and journeys with us. We would not have grown as quickly as we have if it wasn’t for all of you! So Cowabunga team Patient Worthy!
