My Story
As the 2015 Ambassador, Anne has shared her remarkable story to not only spread awareness but also to let other patients know that they are not alone!

I was hospitalized with extreme vertigo and nausea, so severe I couldn’t even walk five steps to get to the telephone for help. I was initially diagnosed with labyrinthitis, an inner ear infection.

Hospital neurologists assured me that I would fully recover and be back to normal in a matter of weeks. Fast forward 10 years, and suffering from imbalance, cognitive difficulties, severe fatigue, neck pain, and excruciating headaches continues.

It took many months for doctors to diagnose me with a chronic vestibular disorder that forced me into retirement. I was a successful writer and communications professional and thoroughly enjoyed my job. 

I am a long term cancer survivor and am supremely grateful for my life,” says Anne. “Today I am working on being a vestibular disorder survivor. It may not be life threatening, but this damn disorder can sure kill your spirit if you let it.

Anne has shared her story on this year's Balance Awareness Week Video. We hope you will take a few minutes to view it.

Anne was also featured in our Spring 2014 On the Level newsletter. Read her full story here.

I am forever thankful to VEDA for the wonderful resources and support they provided me during difficult times. I am honored to be a part of this campaign, this growing organization.

I hope that you will consider supporting me by making a donation today so VEDA can continue to serve more people like myself.
