    What expertise do you have on a particular disease, disorder, or condition? Weekly Topic Inspiration

    The more people I meet, the more I realize that we have all been touched by some disease, disorder, or condition (sometimes directly, sometimes through a close friend or family member). Have you learned anything about a particular condition through firsthand experience that would be useful to other people? If so, share it as part of this week’s Weekly Topic Inspiration challenge.

    Very good question. I unfortunately, have experience in a few different diseases. LOL  From cancer to children's diseases to diabetics..you name it, it's around. I do think every family has experienced cancer somewhere. I have yet to find a family who has not, and that is unfortunate. 

    I have several hubs on cancer and some on childrens diseases. All from personal experiences (again, unfortunately)
