Why is June HHT Awareness Month so important? What does raising Awareness have to do with finding a cure? Everything!
Raising Awareness of HHT with both the public and the medical/scientific community leads to faster diagnosis, early treatment, and increased attention to our causes. Awareness accelerates our mission to find a cure for this disease that touches all of our lives, and the lives of those we love.
“We had a beautiful, perfectly healthy, normal 20-year-old. She was driven. She was in school to become a homicide detective. One minute she was there and the next, she was gone. With no warning. This disease can change your life in a matter of minutes. I will never be the same person that I was. But I will make something beautiful out of this tragedy. It is my goal, my mission. Maybe the reason this happened to us is so that we could do something about it. So we can make sure people know about this disease, to inspire more people to get tested and to get diagnosed for HHT. This doesn’t have to happen to another family.”
– Susan Wallace
