Spreading the Word about Turner Syndrome!!

Hello Blogging Friends!!


I am more determined then ever to get the word out about Turner Syndrome!!  I have been on a high since the "It's A Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop knowing that we made so many more people aware of Turner Syndrome and the many ways that it can affect girls and women lives! 


Yesterday I went to a local Scrapbooking Crop and I brought my cards and all the lovely cards that people sent me to sell for the benefit of the Turner Syndrome Foundation.  Well I stand up to explain that I am selling these cards with all the money going to the TSF and again no one there had heard of TS before except for the people that already know me!  No one asked questions as a group, but ladies came up to me during the day while I was scrapping and quietly asked me what is Turner Syndrome and then were shocked that they had never heard of it before!  Needless to say that took the wind out of my sails and has made my mission of educating the world about TS even more important!


So I am going to start planning the 2020 Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop and I am hoping that it will be bigger then this year and that we can reach so many more people!  I appreciate all of you who participated this year and especially those of you who are already on board for the 2020 Blog Hop!!  I even have some Sponsors saying they will be a Sponsor again in 2020!!


Big Hugs,

Lori

It's A Girl Thing - Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop

Hello Blogging Friends!!

We are happy you are here!


Turner Syndrome is a genetic disorder where a female is born with only one X chromosome, instead of two, leaving her with life-long medical issues and learning disabilities. This condition occurs one in 2,500 female births worldwide, but is more common among pregnancies that do not survive to full term. That is why Turner Syndrome Females are considered MIRACLES!







Nineteen caring Sponsors have partnered with us to bring Turner Syndrome Awareness to the Public. 


Eleven talented and caring designers are offering prizes on their personal blogs as well:


Each designer was asked to use a few of the official TS colors in their creations:




Because we have 42 DT members who want to support this awareness event, prizes will be awarded based on very easy criteria. Commenters will become eligible to win prizes. The more comments hoppers make, the more opportunities you have for winning. Here's what to do:

HOW TO WIN:

  1. Leave a comment on the TS Awareness Home Blog Post stating at least one thing you learned about Turner Syndrome. Our Tab titled About Turner Syndrome has a quick pictorial explanation of many of the symptoms or limitations faced by TS females.
  2. Leave a comment on one or more DT blog hop posts. 
  3. Prizes will be awarded randomly from the comments left on 19 of the DT blog hop posts + by 11 of the designers who are awarding prizes of their own. So the more posts you visit and comment on, the more likely you are to win a prize. Don't forget! You must also leave one comment on the Home Blog, too.
  4. We hope this will bring an awareness not only about Turner Syndrome in females, but that if any human being seems a bit out of the ordinary, there could be a health-related or genetic reason for it, and it would be nice to give everyone the benefit of the doubt in our daily lives.
Winners will be announced on February 15, 2019.


Let's get started! Click on a thumbnail photo below to leave a comment about their TS related creation. Then come back to this page for the next person in the blog hop line up. The design team thanks you for supporting and learning About Turner Syndrome

February is Turner Syndrome Awareness Month



Why is Awareness Month Important?
February 1 officially marks the start of Turner Syndrome Awareness Month! While it’s important to raise awareness for Turner Syndrome all year long, February is a chance to do a little more!
Everyone wants to raise awareness for a different reason because each Turner Syndrome story is so unique. Caregivers searching for ways to share a diagnosis are probably here for different reasons than a woman looking for adult resources. Or maybe you want to support someone affected by TS in your life. No matter what brought you here, it’s safe to say that we all want to raise awareness and make an impact for the future of Turner Syndrome care.
Awareness Month is so important because it is an opportunity for our community to come together. One person can make a tremendous impact, but together we can bring awareness to Turner Syndrome on a national scale!
Awareness Month 2019: Awareness in Action
This Awareness Month, we’re celebrating the power of one! If one person takes one action, the impact can be incredible! February is a special opportunity to show the world why Turner girls are amazing and why it’s important to recognize the signs of this condition that’s often misdiagnosed. Will you take a stand with us?

By participating in the "It's a Girl Thing" ~ Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop you are helping to spread information and awareness of Turner Syndrome!!  I appreciate each and every one of you who are standing with me to spread awareness!!  Thank you so very much!!

"It's a Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness Inaugural Blog Hop



Hello Everyone!!


If you have just heard about Turner Syndrome or the Turner Syndrome Awareness Inaugural Blog Hop going on the first week of February 2019 ~  I would like to welcome you to this blog! 

My daughter, Julie, was born with Turner Syndrome.  Over the years we have found that not many people know about Turner Syndrome and I have made it my mission to make the world aware of this Genetic Condition in the hopes that more research will  be done about Turner Syndrome and the life long effect it has on females!  

Why am I doing a Blog Hop in February??  Because February is Turner Syndrome Awareness Month!!


Please look around this blog!!  


Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you all a Happy Thankgsiving!!

Hello Designers!!

First I want to tell you how thankful I am that so many of you have joined me in my mission to educate the world about Turner Syndrome!!  I appreciate each and everyone of you and thank you from the bottom of my heart!  I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones!  Julie is home now through Thanksgiving and I am so happy she is here!!

If by chance any of you should have something come up that you can't be in the Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop please contact me and let me know so that I can take your name off the list.

I will be writing up a little something that you can put into your blog post, but I haven't gotten that far yet.  I am hoping to get that done by mid December.

One of the Designers was kind enough to ask about donating her cards to the Cards for Charity cards that I am selling for the Turner Syndrome Foundation.  If anyone would like to donate their card to be sold on the Cards for Charity facebook page all the money from the card sales will be donated to the Turner Syndrome Foundation here in NJ.  It is not required that you send me your card to participate, its only if you want to.  If you have any questions, please e-mail me at:  mulchlady6@gmail.  If you decide that you want to send your card in to be sold for TS then you can mail it to me at:

Lori Kobular
1119 Aster Drive
Toms River, NJ  08753

Thank you all again!!  I can't wait to see what everyone creates for this blog hop!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
Lori
