A couple of months ago, I wrote an email to Perez Hilton, the celebrity blogging gossip queen. I was hoping to convince him to do a post on EDS, since his readership has been reported around 280 million a month, with 13.5 million being unique readers. I figured this would be an amazing way to spread the word. Perez also has a soft spot for animal rights, so I knew we had a few things in common to start a conversation. I never heard back from him or his helpers, so I figured he wasn’t interested. I don’t know if someone else convinced him, or if I had a hand in this, but either way…we just got an EDS blog post on a site with almost 300 million readers!! Oh my goodness! This is fabulous news for EDS awareness! I hope this helps shed more light on our genetic illness and also helps us raise money for our EDS treatments. I raise my cup of tea to Perez!
