My New Mission

I know many might think I am crazy but I have a mission. I don't know exactly what I am going to do yet but I know that I want and need to do something. So many people don't know much about albinism and I want to bring awareness to people.

When people make comments about Madison's eyes, hair, or skin I tell them she has albinism. I find it as an opportunity to spread information about albinism. So many people think that people with albinism have red eyes but that just isn't true, In movies they are always portrayed as evil beings or as trolls. People who have albinism are just like you and me, the only difference is they have little or no melanin and have vision problems.

I want Madison to grow up being proud of who she is and to know that she is a beautiful girl and is no different from anyone else. I want others to be more aware of albinism and if you can think of a way I can do this please share with me. I feel very strongly about this.

Also, I wanted to say this so everyone knows before more time goes by. Calling a person with albinism "albino" is a derogatory term and we would prefer Madison wasn't called this. She has albinism and is a person with albinism. Thank you for your understand

Come on and give me some ideas people!!!!!
