I’m not sure if I would say that I a “passionate” but there are causes that I support and that are very important to me.
Endometriosis awareness: I spent years being misdiagnosed because I did not fit the textbook case of being a White middle-aged childless career woman so when I educated myself and knew just as much as doctors back in the day, I made sure to share my experience and knowledge with those around me. I also serve as a member on an Endo Board.
Supporting cancer: I have always supported cancer research and now that my father is ill, it has become even more important to me. When the dust settles, my plan is to volunteer my time to others for respite care.
Alzheimer research: These days, every one I know is or has been hit by this horrid disease and I make monthly contributions.
If I ever get back my fiction writing mojo, I would love to incorporate the above into my stories and have readers donate to these causes.
