Fibro is Real: Tell insurance companies to recognize fibromyalgia as a disease


As a husband of a fibromyalgia survivor, I've seen just what fibromyalgia can do to a person and to a family. But, as amazing as it sounds to those of us affected by fibromyalgia, it is still not considered a real disease!

My name is John Obenchain and my mission:  Change this.  Prove fibromyalgia is real. That’s why I’ve come to

I’m asking for everyone touched by fibromyalgia - whether you suffer directly, whether your friend or family member suffers, whether you care for one who suffers – to please sign my petition.

Your signature will help encourage the recognition of fibromyalgia as a legitimate disease, one that must be cured. One that insurance companies must recognize and cover ALL treatments, medications and supplements for. petitions have inspired ground breaking changes.  Let’s use this power to change the way society views fibromyalgia. Let's show them #FibroIsReal.
I can’t do this alone – please help.
