National Porphyria Awareness Week: April 22 - 29, 2017

National Porphyria Awareness Week: April 22 - 29, 2017

Rita Ladner set up a table at her local pharmacy (Boone's Pharmacy) to pass out porphyria brochures and porphyria fact sheets.  She also educated those with questions about this rare disease.  She had one lady come up to her who had a friend recently pass away with porphyria.  She had not heard of it again until she had spoken to Rita.  She sends her inspiration for YOU to do MORE!  Way to go, Rita!

Think about what you can do to heighten awareness!
