Comment Of The Day March 15, 2010
Today we kicked off the “What Autoimmune Awareness” series means to me. We are inviting our community to submit their stories about what awareness means to them, to be published throughout the month of March. We hope you do submit 200 words, 500 words, or 50 words; whatever it means to you, we want to hear it. Send your words in, express yourself. Put your disease out into the world where it belongs.
Today’s post: What Awareness Means To Me, Sarah Downing: National Autoimmune Diseases Awareness Month, March 2010 was fantastic. If you haven’t read it, please do. Sarah is a Hashimoto’s patient. She is the Editor of Research and Awareness for Dear Thyroid. Her column “Flying with Broken Wings” is soaring to new heights. If you haven’t read it, get to clickin’.

Being the community we are, we have every confidence, you will welcome her with open glands.
