I'm pleased to announce I'm hosting the awesome blog carnival Patients for a Moment this month. The goal of the carnival is to "build connections within the community of people who blog about illness, disease and disability." I hope you'll all join me in supporting this important, patient-centered blog carnival that provides us with opportunities to share ideas with patients from all different backgrounds and experiences. The carnival is certainly not limited to patients, though. Anyone with an interest or background in disease or illness is encouraged to participate, including doctors, nurses, patient advocates and caregivers.

The theme of the April Patients for a Moment Carnival is: "Who are you without your disease? What makes you more than just your disease(s)? How have you adapted these aspects of your life so they're not completely overcome by your illnesses?" Feel free to address your hobbies, career, family life, volunteer work, blogging or anything else you feel makes you the unique person you are.

Submissions are due by midnight (the end of the day) on Saturday, April 14, 2012. Please send them to me by email at somebodyhealme at dianalee dot net. Include the following details:

  • Your Name (as you would like it to appear in the carnival)
  • Blog Name
  • Blog URL
  • Post Title
  • Post URL

For more information about the PFAM Carnival's submission guidelines, please visit: Submission Guidelines for Participants.

The April edition of the PFAM carnival will be posted here at Somebody Heal Me on Sunday, April 15, 2012.

If you have any questions please post a comment on this post or shoot me an email. Can't wait to see what everyone has to say on this topic!
