As you all know, EDS Awareness Month is upon us, and my goal of getting Nevada to pass a Proclamation came to fruition this May. You might not know, however, that I have a connection to Ohio, as well. Girlfriend lives in Columbus, OH and I have had my eyes on the prize of a Proclamation in that state, too. I went to work a few weeks ago and just received the great news - May is now Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Awareness Month in Ohio for 2011! Yippee! This is great news, especially since I am spending May and June in Ohio on vacation!

The text of the Proclamation is not currently on the state's website, but I will post a link when it is. It is the same text as the Nevada Proclamation. Visit here for more info on why Proclamations are so important.
