Mildred “Milly” Velez is the founder of the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America. Milly was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2007 and struggled with her search for answers for years. After years of enduring misguided and prejudiced medical care, she founded the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America in 2015. The Fibromyalgia Care Society of America is the only entity that provides specialized programs such as fresh food delivery and virtual assistance to the fibromyalgia community.
An estimated 4-12 million+ people are living with fibromyalgia with little to no information or resources. In response to the lack of adequate education, treatment, and support for those living with Fibromyalgia, Milly and the FCSA came up with these services:
The Virtual Coordinated Care Program brings care, supportive services and telehealth directly to the person who may be homebound due to fibromyalgia or who may not always be able to travel to us given the complexities of living with fibromyalgia. This program provides an advantage as they are able to roll out services much quicker on a State Level vs. Cities/Counties.
