This month has been CRAZY! So much personal stuff happening, so I apologize for not talking to you in a while. Here is a little recap of the stuff we have been able to attend in SoCal. I hope this inspires you to get out and get involved in your community or a charity that you would like to support.
I truly believe that if everyone just put out just 1% more effort then they are doing, the world would get better and better. Find a cause you are passionate about and Get Involved! You will make a difference in someone’s life – I guarantee it.
You are going to fall in love with this amazing lady. Her hemophilia story is one that has changed so much from finding out the diagnosis and how it is managed today, you will love the growth and it will inspire you to take control of your situation. She is amazing, inspiring, funny, smart and I am so thankful that hemophilia allowed me to meet her. You will learn some great life tips from listening to her on this pod.
She is inspiring as a business woman as well. She is the VP of Aida Cosmetics, which I now love – do you want to know why? Beacuse they help our community by teaming up and trying to help raise awareness for our community and their stuff looks AWESOME.
My favorite thing about Amberly is her outlook on life. She thinks so positively and you can just tell that she is a happy, aware, confident awesome lady. She truly makes a concious effort to conquer the obstacles that are thrown at her. I just love her…have I said that already? She urges all new moms, everyone actually, to do your research, ask questions, make sure you are always learning and taking charge of your own life. I know you will enjoy this pod and please leave a comment below to let us know how much!!!
Remeber to let me know if you will be joining us for dinner and some Hemo education at Roys in Pasadena on August 9th.
Another Picnic in the Park style event – but this time we are heading to the beach! As always, everyone is welcome to Hemos Unite events. The purpose of Hemos Unite is to bring everyone together in a safe environment so you can get to know each other on a personal level. We also want to know your family, friends, teachers, neighbors…anyone who wants to show their support for the community. We are here to learn about different disorders and break down the walls of judgment and ignorance. All how seek to do the same are welcome with open arms.
There are a lot of non profits and individuals that have elected to speak out or create events to help the community. MORE events and MORE programming is wonderful. I am so excited that everyone out there is focused on bring great stuff to the community, so if you have “stuff” planned, let everyone else know about it!
Hemophilia Alliance of Orange County will also be there with information, so please come out and meet your resource in Orange County!
There will be a concert that day starting at 11 am and another starting at 5 pm. The beach is in the midst of their free concert series, so be prepared for a crowded day (which is why we are getting there early) .
I met Josh last year through Facebook and are working on a nice little friendship. He is quite possibly one of the nicest people I have ever met. He is so kind and knowledgeable and willing to give of his time and energy. He and his wife are very special people in my eyes. I gotta get her on the pod, by the way – she is a firecracker. Hi E!
Josh was born in 81 is a a Severe A Hemophiliac. He lives life to the fullest every day. He has many hobbies, reptiles, snakes in particular, electronics, fire dancing, cars and the list goes on. Through his experience with his hobbies, he gives back to our community. There is a deep wisdom that someone so young is in possession of. I love it when he talks about what fear stems from when we are talking about the educational shows he does with snakes.
I am thrilled to intoduce you to Jeffrey Leiken from Evolution Mentoring. This guy is a bad ass and I absolutely love his message and how he sees relationships and LIFE. I was so excited that Novo Nordisk also saw how amazing he is and decided to bring his expertise to the hemophilia community.
