I am very excited tonight that I will be participating in my very first Google Hangout on Air this evening!!
I’ve been doing some dabbling in Google+ lately and have realized how great the site is and how much you can do with it. There I met Frank Garufi, Jr. who is a strong voice for the Crohn’s and colitis community. He has an amazing story that you should read. His son, Domenic, was born with Crohn’s disease and has lived with it for all 7 years of his life. You can read his whole story on Frank’s Google+ site for The Crohn’s Colitis Effect. I know how difficult it was to be 13 and dealing with these symptoms. I can’t imagine living with it from day 1. He’s a very strong little boy.
I had my first hangout with Frank a few weeks ago and got a chance to talk with him (basically) face-to-face. His mission now is to raise awareness for these diseases which will hopefully lead to more research for a cure. He’s been a great contact to make in the IBD world.
And tonight, I will be doing a live interview with Frank on Google hangouts! You can find more information at this link. It will be 8:30 this evening. I’m really looking forward to being able to talk about my experience in this new forum. I’ll look forward to seeing you all then!
