Six years ago this month, we first heard the word Dermatomyositis. When the doctor told us my daughter Morgan, who was 11 years old at the time, had it, I didn’t even know how to say the word, let alone know what the diagnosis meant. But our family quickly got a crash course in understanding something no one should have to understand.

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the Cleveland Clinic Patient Experience and Empathy Conference, in Cleveland, Ohio. I have to admit, while I was thrilled about the conference, I wasn't excited about the location. My only prior experience with Cleveland was a business trip, but I was pleasantly surprised by the downtown area, and the views of the sunset over Lake Erie were spectacular!

CareSync is MY Family's Health Record

For me, CareSync is so much more than a job I go to each day. It's a project built with passion to help families like mine manage the moving parts that are inevitable when taking care of an ill relative.

Getting the Diagnosis

It is a morning that I will never forget. June 18th at 8am. It came after a very long week of waiting. What originally seemed like a pesky rash had obviously become much more. Even though the doctors thought it was psoriasis, deep in my gut I knew that it was much, much more. As we waited for the biopsy results for a long 7 days, I went back and forth between convincing myself that it would be psoriasis and freaking out that it might be something much worse. When we arrived in the exam room, we were told that the biopsy results weren’t back yet. The nurse assured me that the doctor had noted that she was almost sure it was psoriasis. As we are driving away, I got a phone call to come back immediately. I knew at this moment that the news would not be good.
