May is Ichthyosis Awareness Month: A guest post by Kitty, May 07, 2020 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1296)

Many people get up in the  morning, do their hair, fix their face, dress and they’re set for the day.


But for some people w/ ichthyosis, grooming may need to be re-visited throughout the day to hydrate and moisturize. It isn’t about vanity, it’s about necessity.


Fortunately, for teachers and other school personnel, FIRST is at the ready with information that will guide them through caring for their student with ichthyosis.

And my granddaughters–Princess A and Princess J-E–have always had excellent care, from their bus driver, teachers, and to the school nurse.


That’s a great comfort for their Mawmie Kitty.

Please visit the FIRST web site to learn more about ichthyosis and to make a donation that can help affected families:

P.S.  Thanks to my good friend Kitty for her heartfelt sharing this opportunity for us to make ourselves more aware of ichthyosis!  I have once again made a modest donation to the wonderful research and awareness that FIRST provides to families,  the medical profession, and the educational community at large.  If you feel so moved to also donate, every donation level is welcome and helps so much!  Bless you!

And also here below is the direct donation link to the FIRST web site:

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
