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:
