ambassador program

Fight Like A Warrior's Ambassador Program was launched in January 2022 and has introduced a new cohort each year since then. Ambassadors are from around the world, have various conditions, are at different parts of their own chronic illness journeys, and come from all walks of life. They represent the diversity that can be found throughout the chronic illness community. Each ambassador was chosen because of their commitment and passion for advocacy, as well as our shared vision in supporting those battling chronic health conditions.

Our goal with the Ambassador Program is to uplift the voices of positive, influential advocates within the chronic illness community. Fight Like A Warrior provides our ambassadors with the opportunity to express their thoughts and experiences on a variety of topics through our shared platforms. With this collaboration we aim to give them the agency to authentically connect with those affected by chronic illness and allies, alike.

Applications for our Ambassador Program are currently closed, but reopen yearly. If you, or someone you know, are interested in being an ambassador we encourage you look for the announcement of when we're accepting applications on our website, social media, and newsletter. Our Deputy Director of Operations, Valerie Gacula, would be happy to address any further questions/comments. You may reach her at

why i advocate

Since I had to navigate my chronic illness journey on my own, I wanted to ensure people who are experiencing the same are seen, heard, and respected.


I’m a wife and homeschooling mom of three living with Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA) and recovering from disordered eating. My spare time is spent with my family, organizing the local children's business fair, or running my crafting business.

  • I’m a big fan of 80’s-90’s nostalgia! I watch a ton of tv shows and listen to music from these eras regularly.

  • I love crafting so much that I’ve made a business out of it!

  • I wrote an entire children’s book in one day.
