Awareness is key

The heart is a key symbol of the month of February, not only for Valentine's Day but because it is also National Marfan Awareness Month. I think it's so important to get as much information out there as possible about this genetic disorder, especially since it affects Todd, Michael and Katie.

I read this article earlier today and found it to be very interesting and informative. Just knowing that you have the disorder is key to getting the proper treatment and being seen by the specialists that are needed. I feel extremely fortunate that our family is able to get the care that is needed for the best quality of life. I know that everyone is not so lucky.
