The #chronicallyawesome foundation is the ONLY foundation in the nation to meet the needs of people with any chronic illness through it’s cutting edge online support programs, arts therapy and creative story telling.

Julianna Shapiro started the #chronicallyawesome movement in 2009 when she began to use the Twitter # (hashtag) to self-identify, empower herself and inspire men and women across the nation. Julianna, and now the Foundation, have reached thousands of patients across the nation with its #chronicallyawesome twitter tag, Google Hangout Support Group, Blogging Community, and Chronic Chronicles podcasts. All this was achieved with no infrastructure and outside support.  It is a true grassroots movement founded by, run by and designed for members of the chronically awesome community.

Now, with the #chronicallyawesome foundation, the #chronicallyawesome community will reach out and provide services to anyone who needs support and an avenue to express themselves and their lives.

The Foundation is operating under Fractured Atlas’ Fiscal Sponsorship program.  For more information, visit  our “About Fractured Atlas page.”
