WEGO Health Patient Leader: Ronny Allan – Living with Neuroendocrine Cancer

Who are WEGO Health?

WEGO Health is a mission-driven company dedicated to transforming healthcare by harnessing the experience, skills and insights of patient leaders.  They are a network of over 100,000 patient leaders from all types of illnesses and conditions.  I’m proud to be one of them.  

In June 2021, Health Union, the leader in building online health solutions for people living with chronic conditions, announced that it has acquired WEGO Health, the world’s largest network of patient leaders – advocates, community leaders, creators and influencers. Combining Health Union’s targeted scale and depth in the condition experience with WEGO Health’s breadth of patient leaders in nearly all health conditions, Health Union aims to change the face of social health, connecting people in meaningful and innovative ways. The WEGO brand name will continue as normal.  Read more below.

My WEGO Award History

In 2016, I was nominated for 6 awards, selected as a finalist for 2 of those (Blog and Community) and then won the Best in Show Community award.  Listen to my WEGO Finalist podcast in 2016 – click here

I was introduced to podcasting at this point and took part in one as part of the award celebrations.  Listen to that here

In 2017, I was nominated for 3 awards, Blog, Patient Hero and Lifetime Achievement.  I actually made the final of all 3 – unsuccessful but proud to have gotten so far in 3 different categories. 

In 2018, I was nominated for 5 awards and made to the final in the Blog category.  This is not only another great opportunity for me as a blogger and health activist but also a further opportunity for Neuroendocrine Cancer awareness.  After 3 successful finals in the Best in Show Blog category, I finally won over the judges and was declared the winner.  This was a real turning point for my work and shortly after that win, my blog views reached 1 million.  I wrote about that for WEGO.  Read that piece in here

After this award I wrote an article for WEGO Health when my blog reached 1 million hits – read about that here

2019 and 2020. I declined any nominations coming out of the awards; it was a personal choice due to an overload of commitments.

2021.  The story continues with a dozen nominations and a finalist in Blog and Lifetime Achievement.  Announcing the 10th Annual WEGO Health Awards Finalists – WEGO Health

The judges have yet to decide, and an update will follow

 

Why awards generate awareness

There’s a number of reasons why awards generate awareness.  I said from day 1, my tactics were to generate awareness in new audiences.  Sharing my story in new places does this.  It’s also a chance to take up speaking and other opportunities in new places.  I was totally blown away by a message from Jack Barrette, CEO of WEGO.  I think really sums up the benefits for Neuroendocrine Cancer.
