Circle of Sisters- Musings of a NYC dermatologist

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 Mom’s Story, which contains inspirational thoughts which were born from her struggle with her daughter Kelly’s 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. Blackmon’s book will go to The Kelly Fund for Lupus, Inc.,  which supports charitable, scientific and educational endeavors.  To learn more visits www.thekellyfundforlupus.org .
