I plan to do the Cushing's Awareness Challenge again. Last year's info is here: http://cushie-blogger.blogspot.com/2016/03/fifth-annual-cushings-awareness.html

That page is getting very slow loading, so I've moved my own posts to a new blog at https://cushieblogger.com 

As always, anyone who wants to join me can share their blog URL with me and I'll add it to the links on the right side, so whenever a new post comes up, it will show up automatically.

If the blogs are on WordPress, I try to reblog them all to get even more exposure on the blog, on Twitter and here on Facebook at Cushings Help Organization, Inc

 

The Cushing’s Awareness Challenge is almost upon us again!
 
Do you blog? Want to get started?
 
Since April 8 is Cushing’s Awareness Day, several people got their heads together to create the Sixth Annual Cushing’s Awareness Blogging Challenge.
 
All you have to do is blog about something Cushing’s related for the 30 days of April.
 
There will also be a logo for your blog to show you’ve participated.
 
Please let me know the URL to your blog in the comments area of this post, on the Facebook page, in one of the Facebook Groups, on the message boards or an email  and I will list it on CushieBloggers ( http://cushie-blogger.blogspot.com/ )
 
The more people who participate, the more the word will get out about Cushing’s.
