About My Journey

My Journey, My Choices

My Journey, My Choices (My Journey) is a tool for healing when faced with long-term illness, based on the Caring Ambassadors Program’s extensive experience helping individuals with challenging health conditions to become ambassadors for their health. The program aims to assist individuals with long-term disease(s) to recognize and act upon what they can control in their healthcare journey to achieve optimal healing. My Journey uses a web-based platform to provide: Education on all aspects of healthcare; Empowerment through self-advocacy skills and knowledge; Support through linkage to reputable services and resources, and; Motivation to research, create, and track a healing journey. My Journey promotes an integrative approach to health, providing information and resources on western medicine, as well as evidence-based therapies, practices, and lifestyle modifications that contribute to holistic health and well-being. My Journey was founded based on the Caring Ambassadors’ guiding values:

Information empowers Patient engagement is necessary for optimum wellness Health is holistic
Patient-centered care is optimal care Evidence-based information is necessary for good decision making Collaboration and integration benefits all patients
