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

Because when I was first diagnosed with Crohn’s disease my doctor basically told me I have inflammatory bowel disease - that was it. I felt unheard and alone so I vowed to never let anyone else feel the same way I did when I was diagnosed.


My name is Myisha and I'm from Baltimore, Maryland in the United States. I am a wife of and mother of four. I was a WeGo Health Awards finalist in 2019 and one of WeGo Health's "Top 10 Rookies of the Year" in 2020. I was featured on MSNBC as well as CNN-Health. I am a Crohn’s and colitis task force member and community forum moderator. I’ve lobbied on Capitol Hill for step therapy and health care for all.

My favorite quote is : "if it’s not going to matter in 5 years, don’t give it 5 minutes of energy."
