As you know by now, I strive to get proclamations passed each year by the Governors in states that hold a place in my heart. This year, I got to work early and now have official documents in hand from three states: Nevada, Ohio, and Oregon. Nevada’s Governor Sandoval, in my home state, passed the proclamation making May 2013 Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Awareness Month for the fourth year in a row. Ohio’s Governor Kasich passed our EDS Awareness Proclamation for the third year in a row, in the state I now reside. And, for the first time ever, Governor Kitzhaber of Oregon passed the EDS Awareness Proclamation in the beautiful Pacific Northwest! I dedicate the Oregon EDS Awareness Proclamation to my EDS bestie who lives in Oregon, Shellie, and her beautiful family. Tomorrow, I will post info on what you can do locally to help spread awareness and what activities you can organize or participate in where you live. Hope you all are well and having a low pain day!
