When you are battling an illness or a family member is, times can be stressful and challenging. Patient Perspective is committed to supporting, advocating ,and to aid those in need by encouraging everyone to share their story. Emma Widmar is determined to share her rare disease journey, with determination to change the way society views and values the patients experience.
Emma has faced adversity because of her chronic rare diseases. She has learned that a diagnosis does not limit her, but allows her the ability to be an advocate. Emma learned quickly through her experiences as a patient that her perspective is often overlooked. By creating, Patient Perspective, she hopes to encourage others to share their story so the world may become educated on healthcare driven by the voice of patients.
“Do not wait to be healthy to do something wonderful, this story of yours will lead you to find your passion. It is those who face hardship and see beauty within the hardship that make the most out of life” said the founder. She has realized that through the darkest times, the brightest light is to be discovered. Patient Perspective is not only her opportunity to enrich others, but it is yours too. Through advocacy and empowerment her mission is possible.
