ALSP Awareness Month
Help Us Spread Awareness About ALSP
We are so excited to be one week away from ALSP Awareness Month 2022. Sisters’ Hope Foundation has exciting events, speakers and awareness planned for the entire month of March. Stay tuned for Sisters’ Hope Foundation to be Hangin’ Tough while Bridging the Gap in ALSP Awareness!
The importance of March and why it has been chosen as ALSP Awareness Month.
President & Founder, Heidi Edwards chose March as ALSP Awareness Month because it is her birthday month. “My twin sister, Holly and I always started celebrating our birthday on March 1. We celebrated for 31 days. This year I will celebrate my first birthday month without Holly. Holly lost her battle with ALSP on July 20, 2021. I know I am not celebrating alone thanks to all of you and the wonderful support from the ALSP Community.”
Our theme for ALSP Awareness Month is “Bridging the Gap in ALSP Awareness”.
When I see a bridge lit in different colors it provokes a conversation. I search for the meaning, research the location and the cause. A bridge lit in different colors is a chance to start a conversation and the beginning of bridging the gaps in ALSP Awareness. I invite you to talk about ALSP during the month of March and discuss complicated decisions that come with this diagnosis.
Every time I see pink and purple, I think about Heather and Holly and the meaning of those colors.
- Pink represents love, fun, nurturing and compassion
- Purple represents comfort
- Together they are vibrant and represent hope.
There will be 4 bridges lit in pink and purple on March 1 to launch ALSP Awareness Month.
Can you guess what state these bridges are in?
