Today is Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Day in Darke County

Rose (and Doc McStuffins) are thinking of Corynna
and her family today.
Last week the Darke County Commissioners proclaimed today, Monday, November 25th to be "Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Day" in honor of Corynna Strawser, a local teen who has been living with the effects of the disease.

The community has grown together around this strong, creative, and courageous young woman, and today that is being demonstrated in full force.

In partnership with Cavalier Clothing and Spirit Medical Transport, Corynna's support circle has made T Shirts available and have been selling them over the past few weeks for friends and supporters (many of them strangers to the Strawser family) to wear today to help raise awareness to this awful disease.

If you haven't purchased yours yet, Cavalier Clothing still has some available in their store on Broadway. Grab one, put it on, and snap a photo to post on the Courage for Corynna Facebook page. Group photos are also planned on the circle at 5:30pm to be framed and given to Corynna.

And again, keep the Strawser family in your thoughts and prayers as they continue down this very difficult path.
