Here’s Why You Should Start a Blog If You Haven’t Yet

You know what’s awesome? Blogs.

They’re a great medium for people to:

  • get out their thoughts in writing
  • educate the public
  • teach something about which they’re passionate
  • rant about politics (although, my roommate says I really shouldn’t do that)
  • …really, ANYTHING

Since writing for Patient Worthy, I’ve come across a lot of blogs written by people living with a chronic disease or caring for someone who has a chronic disease.

LOTS of moms, I’ve noticed, keep up with blogs… like this one, called Get Well Clark. 

The posts are written by the parents of a little boy named Clark, who is living with mild hemophiliaDyskeratosis Congenita, and aplastic anemiaall of which are rare.

I mean, what are the chances? But I guess everything happens for a reason?

Clark’s parents hope the site will help spread awareness about his rare disease and keep their family members informed, for instance, about the stem cell transplant he had that cured him of his aplastic anemia.

And if cute kids tug at your heart strings, then prepare for an overload of cuteness! Clark is incredibly adorable.

You can’t help but wanna pitch in and help the little guy. In fact, his parents have provided resources and links inside the blog so you can do just that.

So, if you’re looking for help, information about aplastic anemia, or just need some inspiration, check out Clark’s blog.

Not only does he have experience living with three–count ’em, THREE–rare diseases, he’s fighting them like a champ, which stands as a testament to how great his family is!

Lady Kehveen Abernathy

Lady Kehveen Abernathy, of noble birth (or so she’d like to believe), is what many would call a youthful “old soul.” As a self-proclaimed “caregiver to the world,” impassioned about life, triumph, and all things beauty, Lady Kehveen strives to love others, seek understanding, and most importantly, spread awareness. But don’t let her sweet demeanor deceive you. Dressed to the nines over corset and petticoat, she’s made it her mission to defend the innocent and fight all things evil on this Earth. And being no stranger to chronic disease, she knows exactly where to start.
