BrightSide / Communication tool for parents with fibromyalgia


BrightSide is the first communication tool for parents with fibromyalgia and their kids.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes widespread pain and severe fatigue, that has no cure and no explainable onset. Being a parent with fibromyalgia is extremely difficult especially when it comes to communicating their state to their children.
With BrightSide, parents can establish a communication ritual with their children that will help them overcome the barrier of speaking about their disease. This will reduce stress levels associated with fibromyalgia, helping normalise the condition by shining a light on their daily life.
