Circle of Sisters- Musings of a NYC dermatologist
- Posted on: Oct 12 2011
Aglow Dermatology had a fun-filled weekend at the WBLS Circle of Sisters expo this past weekend. In addtion to passing out information about dermatology and our services to thousands of women, and a few men, our table had visits from many of our current patients and business associates. We also had the opportunity to visit the other vendors, such as Brenda Blackmon co-anchor at My9 News in the New York City metro area. Ms. Blackmon was signing her book, A Moms Story, which contains inspirational thoughts which were born from her struggle with her daughter Kellys diagnosis of lupus. Ms Blackmon shared with me that it was a dermatologist who made the correct diagnosis after her daughter had seen many other types of doctors for a prolonged illness. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can affect the skin, as well as multiple other organs. Lupus can be minor or life-threatening. Profits from Ms. Blackmons book will go to The Kelly Fund for Lupus, Inc., which supports charitable, scientific and educational endeavors. To learn more visits www.thekellyfundforlupus.org .
