Upload your photo/video with your milestone and the special date you want us to remember and we will share with the thousands in the AN community during ANAwareness Week May 6-12.
There are milestones or anniversaries that people remember as a significant event noting a special achievement during the AN journey from a very personal, individual perspective. For some, a milestone can be making a tough treatment decision after months of information gathering. For others, it may be a treatment anniversary, or perhaps reaching a specific goal after treatment. Whether large or small, milestones and anniversaries are meaningful markers and are as unique as the individual.
ANA wants to feature these meaningful events on our website - help us raise awareness by sharing your milestone or anniversary today.
We hope that seeing these realistic and personal events, submitted by patients, caregivers or family members, will provide a sense that you are not alone and you will find comfort from others that have faced similar circumstances.
Together we can make a difference by encouraging others on their AN journey.
At age 33 and mom to two small children, I learned I had a 2.5cm AN. I had successful Translab surgery in May 2017. Unfortunately, I awoke from surgery with facial paralysis and struggled to get back on my feet without help. I wanted to be strong and healthy and get back to what I loved - running. I kept a positive attitude (even though there were plenty of bad days), had an amazing support system and set a goal to run my first race six months post-surgery. I completed a 10K and raised $3,000.00 for ANA!
