Columbus, OH (May 3rd, 2013)—  Council Member Tyson will be sponsoring a resolution recognizing May 12th as National Fibromyalgia  Awareness Day. On Monday May 6th, at Columbus City Hall in downtown Columbus, Ohio beginning at 5PM; Dr. Kevin Hackshaw and E. Michelle Lee, Radio Show host of the Exceptions To The Rules Radio Show on TalktainmentRadio and a sufferer of FMS will accept the proclamation on behalf of the National Fibromyalgia Association, Ohio State University’s Kevin Hackshaw, M.D. Associate Professor of Medicine, Fellowship Director, Rheumatology; The Ohio State University College of Medicine, the Exceptions To The Rules, and other groups around our country who have joined together to promote fibromyalgia awareness and support—including improved education, diagnosis, research, and treatment.

Lee, has designed the “Exceptions- Get Over IT Challenge” and is using her local and national platform to help educate, motivate, and provide resources including but not limited to diet, exercise, and HOPE Motivation for FMS and Chronic Pain Sufferers; especially entrepreneurs and small business owners who do not have health care insurance like herself. 

She will travel throughout the city, state, and country to disseminate FMS education and attend public awareness events.  This “Get Over IT Challenge”, program,  will provide guidance from medical professionals, nutritionist, exercise- certified and/or degreed trainers, and tons of motivational methods needed to withstand the effects and side-effects of FMS. Lee said, “This program and many others rely upon our ability to promote awareness having such credentials as a recognized day City Wide, State Wide, and Nationwide”. She plans to approach the House and Senate of Ohio next.

Ms. Lee has been a sufferer of FMS for more than twenty years and has sustained nearly 20 major surgeries due in part to FMS and its associated ailments.  As a trained researcher she has compiled years of recorded journaling, enlisted the support of OSU’s Dr. Kevin Hackshaw, National Fibromyalgia Association, National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association, Victory Fitness Centers, and a multitude of local and national business owners who suffer from FMS and/or have a product or service that may help ease the pain of FMS so that we can be more productive citizens at home, work, and play by learning how to cope with FMS and chronic pain.

E Michelle Lee quotes, “If you knew how dark my world was, you would wonder how I shine so brightly.” (2011 E.M. Lee)

When confirmed to receive this Proclamation for FMS , Ms Lee quoted the mission of the NFA and gave a call to action,

 We must strive to continually make health practitioners aware of our plight. It is only with this recognition that we will be successful in securing research funds to pinpoint the causes of fibromyalgia, and start toward finding a cure.  Lee encourages sufferers and families with those who suffer to get involved.

Give Back 2 Pay Forward, just do what you can. Contact US ASAP- Come to Columbus City Hall this Monday at 4:30 PM and Stand With Us to say THANK YOU to: Council Member Tyson and Columbus City Council for this breakthrough for our Fibromyalgia Community!

Lee, shares that many who are effected by FMS may not know what to do or where to turn for help.  FMS carries a high risk percentage of those who commit suicide when they can’t get help for the pain. She plans to continue with the “Exceptions Get Over IT Challenge” as her main source of help and relief for her and those whom she supports and encourages to live beyond the pain; always having and sharing HOPE for a cure.
