A few months back I received a message from one of my readers "Afternoon Napper," they told me about the Stanford Medicine X Seminar and that they were looking for "ePatients." I decided I would apply to be one of their ePatients and see what happens....
Friday night I found out I was selected to participate in this years Medicine X program. After a very lengthy process I was one of the few applicants chosen to come out to Stanford University and be an patient advocate for the amputee community. The reason I was chosen is because of this blog. Thanks to my readers and the amazing support you all have given me, I now get to go represent other amputees. I'm still not sure exactly what I'll be doing yet, but I'm excited and honored none-the-less.
I'm still waiting to hear back from the selection committee to see if I have qualified for a scholarship to attend, if not I may have to have a fund raiser to help with the cost of travel and hotel stays. It's only 3 days, but I'm not even sure how much it would cost to fly from Louisville to Palo Alto. I'm getting ahead of myself, so for now I will end tonight with just saying I'm beyond blessed and just want to thank all of you for all the support you've shown and the amazing opportunities I've had because of it. Look forward to updating you about more details as they become available.
