Exciting news! Thomas Marshall Does It All has been nominated for a 2012 WEGO Health Activist Award.
Thomas Marshall Does It All was nominated for Best in Show: Blog
This is awarded to someone who exemplifies the use of blogging to raise awareness and make connections.
The Nomination #HAAwards - Best in Show: Blog Nominee - Jessica is a tireless mother and advocate for her son, Thomas, and other children with special needs. She touches everyone with her personal stories, whether they are stories of struggle or triumph. You can see into her heart and her love of her family, and Thomas. I look forward to reading her posts throughout the week! They help me to understand and feel compassion for others who have struggles different from my own. How does Tom feel about all this?
First he was excited!
Then he felt bashful. All this excitement...
What are the WEGO Health Activist Awards? The WEGO Health Activist Awards were created to embody the mission of WEGO Health: to empower Health Activists. We connect with so many inspiring Health Activists who raise awareness, share information, support their communities, and much more - often without recognition.
We wanted to celebrate those who have made a difference and thus, the Awards were born. We've since found that these Awards are one of the best ways to introduce new Health Activists and have community members say "Thank You" to the leaders they love.
