Health knowledge made personal
My name is Catrina, I am a stay at home mom to 3 children. My days consist of taking care of my children, but online where everyone has the ability to connect and share information I have the obligation to spread the word of a rare disorder called Hirschsprungs Disease. My son who is now 3 has struggled with this rare disorder of the intestines since he was born. I am here to educate anyone who is willing to learn about this disorder. If HD goes undiagnosed and untreated it can lead to death, some children have died from misdianosis and from complications from HD itself. Since I am one of the blessed mothers who lucked upon some wonderful surgeons who were educated about HD, I feel it is my duty to help others.
