OCTOBER is Dwarfism Awareness Month!
TODAY is Oct 1st… do you know what that means!? That means today is the first day of Dwarfism Awareness Month. Yes! This is a thing! And we are proud of it!!!… when I mention “WE”, I mean our community… OH! did I forget to mention that there are over 200 different types of little people and we come from all different walks of life throughout this world! Although we are rare, we are a strong community … especially here in the United States. Little People of America (LPA) has been a resource for people like myself for not only gathering critical up-to-date information but for meeting new people like me!
What’s our mission?? …
"LPA is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with dwarfism throughout their lives while celebrating with great pride Little People’s contribution to social diversity. LPA strives to bring solutions and global awareness to the prominent issues affecting individuals of short stature and their families."
Hundreds of health-related observances have been declared and are celebrated each year, like Autism Awareness Month (April), Breast Cancer Awareness (October), and the Red Ribbon Campaign (October) along with many lesser known medical conditions. It is time for LPA to celebrate our community as well!! So HERE WE ARE… OCTOBER 2015! Are you ready for it?!?!? ..Come back to my page everyday to learn a little something more about dwarfism and A LOT more about yours truly ;P
