Dear readers,

Chiari Awareness is important to everyone at the International Chiari Association (ICA). 

That is why I will be going on the first-ever Chiari Awareness Tour from Sept. 8-15.

During that time, I will visit six states in eight days and do the following: represent the ICA, spread Chiari Awareness and meet those with Chiari and the people that care about them.
