“If my experiences can be the guidebook for another family in similar situation, it would make it all worthwhile”
Who is a VitalGuide?
A person who has a great deal of experience caring for a health condition or disability and wants to help others going through a similar journey.
Why are VitalGuides essential to the Vitalxchange community?
VitalGuides provide guidance on how to handle challenges and other day-to-day aspects of life based on their own experiences. They are relentless and resourceful in finding solutions that work. And most importantly, they are selfless and make it their life’s mission to help others.
VitalGuides are a critical part of Vitalxchange. Not only do they provide our community guidance to navigate through life’s health challenges, they support us every step of the way, so we will never feel alone again.
