I am so excited to be doing the AtoZ Challenge.  It sounds like so much fun.

This is my AtoZ Challenge reveal.  I will be doing a different chronic illness each day in April.

I thought long and hard because there are so many things that I enjoy writing a about.  But I am sure that any of you who have been reading my blog for any time at all know that my true passion is to bring awareness to these chronic diseases that children are suffering through everyday and what a day in their life is like.  So I am happy and proud to reveal my theme:  Chronic Diseases.

Each day I will have a post on my blog:  I Am Not Sick Boy.  I hope  you all enjoy it.  Thank you Tena Carr for explaining this challenge to me and encouraging me to try it out.
