EB Blog Award

I'm so happy to say that my blog has been chosen for an award for being a resource to nurses at registerednurse.org.  This is awesome news to me, as spreading awareness is so important to me.  Now people across the country who are nurses, or seeking a nursing career- can read about EB, be aware, be prepared, and pass this information on to other nurses as well.  I think it is so important (no matter how rare EB is) for healthcare professionals to know what goes on in the lives of these children and their families.  I'm honored to have been chosen.  I received the following e-mail:

Dear Courtney,

Congratulations! Sarah here, and your blog, "EB"ing a Mommy, is an essential part of our resources!

As a website dedicated to help those consider a career as a registered nurse, we only provide the best information available.  Whether it's a resource that helps you understand a particular disease, or how to best interact with an Angelman's Syndrome patient, we provide them for those seeking to obtain this information.  This is why we've featured your blog, as it is one of the best to teach our readers.

You can see your blog and others at: 

Please check it out if you have a chance.  There are also a number of other blogs featured to educate future/current nurses about EB.  Thanks and have a great week!
