This is seriously getting ridiculous. Earlier, I was trying to find a stencil to make hypotonia awareness shirts (there's only one place that sells them and they take a crazy amount of time to ship). I could barely find anything so I looked for black and white coloring sheets to color in and hang up around my room and put in the fronts of my binders. Almost all I found was autism awareness and breast cancer awareness stuff. At my school, they have a huge football game for breast cancer and make a big deal about breast cancer awareness month. Same deal for autism awareness. The (not so) hilarious part is that everyone knows what breast cancer and autism are, and they each have their own month, while no one knows what hypotonia is, and it doesn't even have its own day! So ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for breast cancer, autism, and everything else awareness (I sat outside the cafeteria for two weeks trying to get people to donate money for autism awareness for goodness sake). I just think that such a big deal is made out of this stuff that people forget other conditions exist like, say, I don't know... HYPOTONIA! Even the "rare" diseases and conditions get more attention than hypotonia. Again, no offense, I am just saying that stuff like this deserves attention as well. Hypotonia at least deserves its own awareness day! Also, there's not much stuff out there to promote awareness! There's only one image of the awareness ribbon (it's on the homepage), one person who sells stuff with the ribbon, and only one place that sells shirts with the ribbons. This absolutely nuts. I'm gonna do everything in my power to change this. I don't care if I'm just a 13 year old, I don't care if the adults or everyone else for that matter doesn't listen, I WILL MAKE THEM LISTEN! Someday, there will be hypotonia awareness day, week, or even month! There will be a great variety of products with the ribbon, many images of the awareness ribbon out there, and everybody will know what hypotonia is. Whether this is in months, years, or centuries, it WILL happen. Someday people will figure out that hypotonia matters too!
I'm a 15 year old who loves singing, reading, writing, and campaigning for hypotonia awareness.
