As we wind down the week we have some great speakers for you. Naomi Kingery will be sharing her journey with diabetes from a “tween,” through teens, college and career. Pam Farrel shares about communication in a marriage and how it really are the little things that can matter the most. And then Kelly Young (@rawarrior as many of you know her) shares about the frustrations we sometimes feel when the media or doctors and such sugar-coat our illness. (“Why can’t you go run a marathon now that you are taking that medication–like the girl on the commercial?)
At 5 PM pacific I have prepared a 30-minute video for you as our closing seminar as I share about the week, what I hope you have taken away from it and more. I even have a little video giving you a tour of my office so you can see the “home-base” of Invisible Illness Awareness Week. And guess who interviews me? My husband!
A few things worth noting:
First, just a reminder that all of the videos will stay here--so come listen to them anytime. Or if you listened to one this week, and you are now trying to put things into place that the speaker suggested, remember it’s still here to come back and listen to again if you need refreshed.
Secondly, yes, we will have all the audio files available on a flash drive. We will have this available to order in our store soon (they should arrive early October.)
And lastly, this has all been a work of my heart. I am exhausted (smile) and can barely type today I am so sore, but it was worth it. If you are in the position to give any financial gift, please know it will help us cover the costs of this event. We have not received any donations or any funds whatsoever to pay for this. I have done as much of the work as I can such as the website, social media, and all of the videos. And I am a full-time volunteer. So, if you are able, know how much it means to me.
I hope you will join us today. Our Friday speakers have waited anxiously to have their seminars broadcast, so make sure to drop by at some point today.
