The Mighty is a digital health community created to empower and connect people facing health challenges and disabilities.
We have over 1 million registered users and are adding a new one every 20 seconds.
Our stories and videos are viewed and shared more than 90 million times a month.
But those are just stats. This experience from a community member is what we’re really after:
“How is it that I read an essay on The Mighty and it is the only place in the world where I feel truly understood? Time and time again you speak to me through your contributors. I read this headline and it could have come from my very lips…I wanted to say thank you – words can never express how truly grateful I am to the author for sharing her story, for all Mighty contributors, and to The Mighty itself. You have changed my life. I have made a close friend who lives many miles away because of our shared pain. I gain insight everyday and I finally, finally do not feel so alone in this world. Thank you. Bless you!”
