On August 7, please join us and spread the word about World PVNH Disorder Awareness DayTM

Why August 7? That is the day Ella was born. Had Ella not been part of my life, PVNH Support  & Awareness TM would never have seen the light, and families affected by PVNH and other neuronal heterotopia disorders would still be left to fend for themselves.  So, on August 7, and throughout the year, share our story and help families affected by PVNH.

On August 7, 2015, my daughter Ella would have turned76. Instead of celebrating her birthday with family, friends and birthday cake, on August 7, we honour her and the children & adults that are affected by the rare disorder called Periventricular Nodular Heterotopia (PVHN).
Please wear pink or yellow (clothes or accessory) to show your care, take a picture, post it and share it, tweet / Facebook or blog about it, and most of all – have fun on Ella’s birthday.
With your help, we will change the world of families affected by PVNH.
Please use #PVNHday, #PVNHAugust7 and/or #pinkandyellow for Facebook, Twitter  and Instragram when you tag @PVNHsupport and reference www.PVNHsupport.com when blogging.
