Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I have been sick since then. Sinus Infection, Bronchitis, blah. Day number 15 for this. I went to the doctors on Tuesday and was given meds. Hopefully they work.
My boyfriend gave a presentation in his class this past week on Chiari Malformation. I'm happy he did so; he's showing support and spreading awareness! Too bad I was sick and had to miss it. I would've loved to sit in or act as a visual aid.
Anywhoo...onto Chiari in the Media:
We want more awareness right? So far it has been on some local news stations, newspapers, tv shows like House, Private Practice, and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and Discovery Health.
(If you have anything I don't list...please post it in a comment! I'd love to see it!)
Although they may not all be the best representations of Chiari Malformation...it is at least getting the name out there. Spreading Awareness is a big deal in helping with research.
