Help Me Reach My Goal!

 Help me reach my goal!!

I set out to raise $10,000 in support of Turner Syndrome awareness and I asked a few friends to join me by making a card that they love to be donated to the auction.  Actually, it was much more that just a few friends, it was a network of designers!  Card Designers from around the world rallied behind me to support my ambitious efforts, but I still need your help to reach my lofty fundraising goal.

The Card Heroes Auction was held over the 4th of July weekend and because it was such a success, I opened it up again to run through July 31st.  New items have been added to the auction including cards and scrapbooking and card making supplies, some are Creative Memories products that I am donating.  Every dollar goes to this great cause!  We want everyone to learn more about Turner Syndrome and you can help by sharing the Instagram link:  @mulchlady6

I have been busy settling the July 4th auction and mailing out cards to the lucky winners.  I am very grateful to everyone who supported the event.  Thank you everyone for your outpouring of generosity, love and learning about Turner Syndrome and helping to spread awareness by sharing information through your networks.  Many of the Card Designers are especially awesome to have posted about the event on their social media pages asking others to learn something about Turner Syndrome and also ask their family, fans and friends to support the cause by purchasing a card!

The event has been extended to July 31st and the winners will be announced on August 1st.  Take a look, make a bid and support the cause!

Thank you!

"It's A Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness 3rd Annual Blog Hop and Challenge for February 2021

Hello Blogging Friends!!

Welcome to the 3rd Annual "It's A Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop and Challenge for February 2021!!


This year we are doing things a little differently.  We've decided to change the Blog Hop to a Blog Hop and Card Challenge so that more people can participate.  The purpose of the Blog Hop and Challenge is to bring Awareness of Turner Syndrome to as many people as possible in hopes of getting the medical field to do MORE research on how Turner Syndrome affects girls and women throughout their lifetimes! 


Turner Syndrome was first described in 1938 by Dr. Henry Turner, but chromosomal abnormalities were not discovered until 1960.  Dr. Turner was an endocrinologist from Oklahoma City who discovered TS when a group of women he was treating for dwarfism didn't respond to treatments.  For comparison, Autism was first described in 1943 and Down Syndrome in 1959.  Yet, which of these conditions are household names?  Unfortunately, Turner Syndrome is the odd one out in this case.  With a prevalence of 1 in 2000, TS may be less common, but it does not mean the individuals who are impacted are any less important.


82 years later and we are still organizing a grassroots effort with a goal to raise awareness!  We have a vision for what the future will look like for TS which includes research, comprehensive access to care, and systemic supports.


Turner Syndrome is a genetic disorder where a female is born missing all or part of her second X chromosome leaving her with life-long medical issues and learning disabilities. This condition occurs one in 2,000 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!



You can read about our Journey with TS if you click on the tab above that says Lori & Julie's Turner Syndrome Journey


Twenty-two caring Sponsors and Twelve DT Members are offering prizes to commenters and they are helping bring Turner Syndrome Awareness to the Public. For details on how you might win any of these fabulous prizes, please see Lori's TS home page. Thanks for learning About Turner Syndrome
