I’ve had several people comment about the beautiful blue beads I’ve worn around my wrist each day at the Global Genes patient advocacy summit.
However, they’d be wrong.
The significance of these beads lies in the following:
These beads are our boys.
I wanted to never forget why I’m sitting here. Why I strive for awareness. For treatments. For compassion. For understanding. For pharma companies that are about more than just the dollar.
When I felt challenged, I looked at our boys.
When I felt discouraged, I looked for their beauty.
When I felt tired, I looked for their strength.
When I felt distracted, I felt their reminder.
All I want to do is save kids.
