Acne Can Become Life Altering


When I was growing up, I remember having acne breakouts and doing everything in my power to hide my pimples and blemishes so that others wouldn’t see them. I recall thinking that having one pimple and a tiny blemish was the end of the world. Then I would see my friends that were indeed dealing with cases of acne that were far worse than my one pimple. At one point I did everything I could to remove all of my freckles from my face due to the teasing I endured because of having hundred’s of freckles covering my face. Eventually, I grew to love my freckles, however, I know that is never the case for those who actually suffer from severe acne and they never grow to love their unwanted acne!

Wouldn’t it be amazing if those who are afflicted with acne breakouts discovered what was causing them and were able to cure them? Hopefully, the featured video accompanying this article can shed some light of possible causes.

Health Support and Awareness Advocate with a lifelong dream of being an educator, Vanessa was well along the path towards realizing her goal, having completed an Associate of Arts in Natural Science, Associate of Science in Social Science, Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, and her Master’s of Education, Adult Educators and Administrators. Close to the culmination of the education required to reach her goal of a teaching career geared towards K-12, Vanessa had to make a difficult decision. She asked herself, “Do I continue on with my dream of being a teacher or focus on saving mothers and babies by helping to discover a cause and cure for Hyperemesis Gravidarum?” Vanessa was a volunteering for the Hyperemesis Education and Research Foundation [HER] when she realized there were limited options available when fundraising as a volunteer. The Packs decided to create their own foundation, one that would support all organizations seeking to discover a cause and cure for HG. The Packs held the first ever HG walk on October 20, 2007, A Walk to Remember: HG Walk America, raising awareness in the community and gaining much-needed support for those suffering from the disorder. Proceeds of the walk were donated to the HER Foundation. During the completion of Vanessa’s Masters in 2012, the Ayden Rae Foundation was born. After the birth and survival of the Ayden Rae Foundation, Vanessa and her family grew to understand that there was a greater need for more awareness and support for all diseases/conditions/disorders/syndromes and together they plan to spread awareness about every disease/condition/disorder/syndrome they are made aware of and help connect those who suffer from those diseases; discover that they are not alone and find the resources available for them. It is vital that we all do our part to help eradicate all disease, so families are no longer suffering. It is noteworthy to point out that the worst disease on the planet that most in the world overlook is aging and death! Remember to always be willing to learn more about things you aren't aware of and show compassion for those who are afflicted; awareness and support is key for all of us ❤
