The People Behind TMJ Hope:
I live in a historic neighborhood in Atlanta, GA, and love animals, caffeine, and technology. I was diagnosed with TMJ disorder at the age of fourteen, and have been a part of this online community for many years. My goal in creating TMJ Hope was to fill a gap that seemed to be overlooked: supporting TMJ disorder patients through their journeys and helping them to learn to thrive with TMJD. Many sites provide medical information, but few share the stories of those who have experienced it all first hand.
Ultimately, my hope is that we will become the home of a community that has learned to live beyond TMJ disorder and turn our focus to advocacy. If you would like to contact me, I promise that your suggestions, comments, and ideas will always be heard.
Candy lives in Atlanta with her musician husband, two dogs, Lucy and Chloe, and Lucy’s cat Jazz. She is a jack of all trades (former nurse, paramedic, craft queen, mom, and firefighter for a day). Here at TMJ Hope she is the official ‘take care of people’ person, content writer, and Stacy wrangler (the hardest job so far!). As the parent of a child with TMJD, Candy has a unique perspective on the daily struggles of not just TMJD patients, but of their families and caregivers.Contact Candy
