If you’d also like to participate in the gratitudes this month, we’d love to hear from you! Chime in below and we’ll make sure your words are shared with your community.

Twill Care Community Managers and Moderators

Every day our members share stories of courage, resilience, and compassion.

Your stories inspire us, and for you we are grateful! Thank you for being a part of your Twill Care community and please accept our heartfelt gratitude.

Alee, Community Manager

“To me, the amount of kindness that members share with each other makes the Twill Care communities so special. Our members are so quick to give information, resources, comfort, and support—anything they can do to assist others in their own healthcare journeys—and genuinely want to help.”

“Your participation and support for other members has been incredible to see, and it really means a lot knowing people feel comfortable coming to Twill Care to share about their own experiences. You help us create a safe space for others to open up about some of the more difficult times, and encourage others in your community to share about their wins and successes as well. Thank you for making our communities what they are today!”

Val, Community Manager

“Twill Care is special to me because of the genuine care our members show to each other. Without fail, our members are right there with each other, sometimes feeling discomfort and pain or experiencing difficult emotions, and still they show up with empathy and hold each other up in their time of need. Thank you all for creating a safe space where no one is judged and everyone is accepted for who they are! Twill Care wouldn't be possible without you!”

“You are the heart of Twill Care. I don’t take lightly the fact that you put your trust in your community and I’m so grateful that you’ve given me the opportunity to support you through some of life’s harder moments. I feel very honored and privileged that you seek support and comfort through our communities, and I want to thank you for being our inspiration for all we do!”

Jules, Community Moderator

"Everyone is happy to share their own experiences of what’s helped them and how everyone is always supportive and kind.”

"I’d like to say a massive thank you to every single one of our members for being a part of our wonderful community and for always looking out for each other."

Lisa, Community Moderator

“I can feel the love and compassion in the posts and replies."

"Thank you for making this community beautiful, I am grateful to be a part of it. I send love, light and positive vibes to everyone!"

Twill Care Staff

You may not see it, but our Twill Care staff members work tirelessly behind the scenes to give you the tools, information, and tips you’re looking for to help you care for your health and well‑being.

Today, we’re bringing them front and center as they express gratitude to you, our members!

Twill Care Community Champions

Our Twill Care Community Champions are active members in our communities that we’ve partnered with to make your experience even more engaging and helpful. They’re members living with health and wellness challenges right alongside you, checking in and supporting you as you navigate your own journey.

Hear what they have to say about how being a part of the Twill Care community program and interacting with community members like you has positively impacted their lives!

SamWitt, Community Champion

“I have loved knowing that I have a reputable place to go and ask questions when a new symptom pops up or I’m trying to navigate a challenge. The experts, resources, and community of Twill have been a wonderful complement to my care team as I navigate my MS journey.”

Mookiekdw, Community Champion

“Twill has educated and helped me in so many ways while I’m on this journey of learning about psoriatic arthritis and the role it is playing in my everyday life. Some days, I welcome Auntie Psoriatic Arthritis and other days I want to just scream because my movements are limited. What I’ve learned from Twill is that I’m not on my own, and there are other medicines out there that I’ve never heard of. I love the fact that I can vent, spread joy, and just check up on people that are on the same path as me. I love the meditation options. I've truly found my Zen. Not only that, I’m very thankful for the members, doctors, and team who are more than willing to give advice with no judgment. I know that if I need to vent or, Twill is where I’m heading. Thank you Twill for all you have done for me and others. Have a super groovy holiday.”

Twill Care Healthcare Professionals

Our Healthcare Professionals are experts in their fields, and we’re happy to provide you with the opportunity to ask them questions you have when managing your health and well‑being.

You might be grateful for receiving support from these experts, and they’re just as grateful for the opportunity to provide you with the tips, tools, and resources you want and need.

Here’s what they have to say about their experience with Twill Care.

Elizabeth Eden, M.D., Women & Midlife Expert

“I feel blessed to have landed in the Twill Care community. To have the privilege to share my knowledge and expertise with this community of such supportive women is, for me, a dream come true. To be able to provide the answers to questions posed from our community members who might feel frustrated, disconnected, justifiably skeptical, or find it just too difficult to navigate the system, is simply so gratifying. And to be part of a team of managers and experts who are so incredibly caring and competent is a wonderful feeling.”

“As a gynecologist in private practice in a big city… to be able to connect to women all over the country who need and deserve a little bit of guidance without judgment and straight up, is, for me, indescribably gratifying. So thank you for allowing me to be a part of this beautiful community.”

Joel M. Gelfand, M.D., Psoriasis Expert

“Our Twill Care community members show such courage in sharing their experiences with psoriatic disease and always show such compassion in supporting members of the community. They also always ask great questions to us experts!”

“My clinical practice and research program is dedicated to improving psoriasis patient outcomes in the skin and joints while lowering the risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and mortality. The Twill community inspires me every day and reminds me how much more work we need to do to make sure everyone with psoriatic disease can achieve a durable remission in their skin and joints.”

Kim Smolderen, Ph.D., Well-Being Expert

“The Twill Care community is a safe space where people can openly share what’s going on in their lives without being judged. People feel safe to share their thoughts and provide a glimpse into their lives with others. People react in supportive and positive ways whenever members open themselves up. The fact that a lot of members are returning to provide updates and engage with others, illustrates the value that their interactions bring to them. The supportive environment is unique and something that stands out.”

“The connection with others makes it worthwhile. Learning from others through their stories, and observing that the human experience is universal, can provide insight and perspective. Twill Care offers a way for members to connect with each other and share their experiences and emotions.”

Aimee Zhang, Psy.D., Well-Being Expert

“I am inspired by how much support Twill Care community members show each other through their thoughtful posts and comments. I think it is very powerful to hear from others with similar experiences and find out that you are not alone in your struggles. I also admire how much courage it takes to be willing to share about yourself to people you have never met before, and how much humility it takes to acknowledge that you would like more support.”

“I am so grateful to be a part of the wonderful Twill Care community! I enjoy seeing members encourage each other and lift each other up. It's also helpful to read about other members' experiences and what has helped them in the past. I look forward to continuing to connect with the community and being able to offer help when I can.”
