Some days you just need a reason to smile. If you suffer in illness, smiles are sometimes hard to find. You want to be positive and upbeat, but illness often zaps the spirit within. At Karen Steward and this blog, we are working to bring this illness to the forefront of medicine and public awareness. Because we know the real pain and hopelessness this illness brings and how desperately a kind word is often needed, we have decided to do some fun giveaways to brighten your days! Please register to win a Discover gift card that can be used any way you please. All you need to do is comment below and leave your email address, or, if you prefer to remain private, send your name and contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will draw the name two weeks from today and be mailing the gift out to some lucky participant!
