And remember, so that you don't have to choose between doing good in the world and buying a handmade gift to show a loved one that you care, through February of 2018, 75% of your purchase at Miniature Monkey Creations will be donated to the National Organization for Rare Disorders.
This donation is a personal one for me, as multiple rare diseases brought me to the world of crochet. So far this month I've talked more about my undifferentiated connective tissue disorder, which has been flared up recently and affected my ability to make amigurumi like my beloved monkeys. But my major diagnosis is paroxysmal hemicrania, a rare and severe chronic headache disorder. This is the disease which forced me to stop working and into a more sedentary lifestyle. I am unable to take the one drug known to treat it due to side effects, and my case is triggered by head and neck movements as simple as looking before crossing the street or watching out the bus window for my stop. If you're interested, you can read more about this diagnosis at https://www.ninds.nih.gov/Disorders/All-Disorders/Paroxysmal-Hemicrania-Information-Page
I'm telling you about my diagnoses not for pity, but to educate you about some of the thousands of rare diseases that people like me live with. Because so few people live with each rare disease, there is less research, and few if any treatment options. Learn more about rare diseases at http://rarediseaseday.us/about/what-is-a-rare-disease/
