Carnival of Compassion #20

The 20th edition of Carnival of Compassion is up at Colin’s Journal. All the patient blogs that Colin highlights have a common theme — they are all on diseases with no cure. He also includes blogs from nurses, a caregiver and some other resources.

Carnival of Compassion is a weekly roundup of the “best of” recent patient blog posts. It’s a great way to connect with others with life-changing illnesses.

If you’d like to host it on your blog sometime, read the details and send Dr. Del an e-mail message.
