When this started to grow a strong fan base, a friend of mine asked if I had heard of the blog 65 red roses, a blog that would chronicle the young life of Ms. Eva Markvoort who lived life fighting for every breath thanks to cystic fibrosis. Recently, an article in my local newspaper revealed another blog that I thought would be worth sharing. Derek K. Miller wrote a blog for 10 years and in the most recent of entries would focus on his courageous battle with cancer.

Both began blogging their health experiences.

Why do I share this?

I share this with you all because I feel it important as a blogger to live as authentically as I can through my blog, and because the blogs represented above were fine examples of this, I felt compelled to share.

My hope

My hope is that although I am living a rich and full life with no serious health issues that there is something that allows you to find your own sense of inspiration from my blog. I find reading such blogs as Eva’s and Derek’s inspirational because they seem so real so raw like you are chatting with an old friend, I only hope the same for my readers also.

I thank you for reading this sober post I hope you will comment and share your thoughts as well as view the blogs I have linked to! They are both a good read! This post is dedicated to the of memory of Eva Markvoort and Derek K. Miller

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
