The commitment and progress the DIGITS organization has accomplished with research is truly remarkable. We are fortunate to have doctors who are willing to devote much time and knowledge to furthering our understanding of DIGITS. The medical research is not only establishing the presence of DIGITS in society but also contributing to furthering our knowledge about what DIGITS is, the effects, and treatment.
The medical research is without question needed in lives of those with DIGITS and their families, but this does not capture all of the necessities needed. There remains a need to provide a community of support for individuals with DIGITS and their families. There are many obstacles and challenges faced when struggling with this illness. The opportunity to share stories with one another is essential and especially when those listening can truly relate to that person. All of our experiences, feelings, and emotions are unique to each of us but we have one similarity, DIGITS. For many of us DIGITS has taken from our lives. Just to mention a few loses: our health, time, leisure, work, security, relationships, the life we knew, and my least favourite, spontaneity.
By continuing to vote for DIGITS, you are helping us come one step closer to being able to provide the opportunity for individuals with DIGITS and their families to come together. We will have time to share with one another about the multi-faceted aspects of life with DIGITS in a community of people who understand.
On behalf of all of us at DIGITS, we thank-you for your continued votes in the Aviva Community Fund.
