As you know, June is National HHT Awareness Month and June 23, 2012 was the 1st Global Awareness Day! Many individuals have been sharing their HHT Awareness stories on the HHT Foundation's Facebook page.
Here are a few news stories that have aired on local television or printed in the newspaper:
A'Lisa Hamilton - Local Family Shares Scary and Bloody Disorder
Krystal Pearce - Living with HHT
L. Wayne "Doc" Hanks - Local Family Raising Awareness About Blood Disorder
Keith Scouten - Lighting the Niagara Falls in Blue and Red on June 30th
We are grateful to the Patient Association in Argentina for posting the Global Awareness Day Logo on their Facebook page and promoting awareness activities.
The HHT Canada Association has arranged for the CN Tower to be lit in blue and red on June 29th. You can read the Press Release for this event or visit their newly created website, www.hhtcanada.com, and Facebook Page.
As June comes to a close, we'd love to hear what you have done or plan to do in the month's to come. Contact Cathleen Kinnear at the HHT Foundation International office.
HHT Awareness is not a one time activity, it is a lifetime event.
Join us in this fight!
