i have been researching the names and oh how this saddens me. and scares me. some people and drs just dont understand how this condition can be. i am sorry for the loss of everyone due to this illness or related conditions. in loving memory of all.....

  I do have some links to their stories on my profile......but yes, very sad....Heather was a friend of mine so it was a difficult one, not that they all were not difficult but to have someone u talk to and then lose it is hard.

Clint's mom is a member of this forum clintsmum.....and u can find a thread with her posts and same with Garion's mom, she is also a member and is making it her life's work to get all chiarians tested for sleep apnea.

Kelly was another one that was just a wonderful person and tried so hard to get awareness for chiari.....I think of her everyday, as I do Heather, and Clint, Ashtyn , Sally...her story was so sad as she was dismissed so often...I could go on...but as I said they r with me everyday <3

Thinking of putting their names on the back of my shirt to honor them during my walk!  I also have changed my facebook cover photo to a college of chirari pics, and have a pair of purple boxing gloves as my profile pic.  As soon as I get it all lined up, I will be posting daily about awareness.  I just finished the families purple ribbons so they can wear them to school and work.

  I have been posting daily and made  a promise to get awareness out to Kelly's DH...so, I do a lot of it for her, it is Kelly's Dream that Chiari awareness gets out there.

I just found out that Conquer Chiari is doing a research via online accounts. I started it today and it is basically asking about history, surgeries, medications, family, doctors, etc. No identifying info though. It's a go at your own pace kind of thing, answering questions when you can. Check it out if you are interested!
