Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome Awareness.



Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome (CVS) is not very well known.

 A lot of people suffer for years without a diagnosis because not many doctors know of it. 

We were very lucky to be at an amazing hospital that knows about CVS and after examining Kate, their first thought was that she had CVS. Now just over a year later, we are one test away from our diagnosis.

This Thursday, Grey's Anatomy will air an episode featuring CVS! 

"The episode will be about an older gentleman 
who repeatedly comes into the ER with the same episode 
and symptoms. Through a pediatric doctor’s experience, 
the episodes get properly identified as CVS. His quality of life has been severely impacted by his CVS and Migraines and hopefully his life going forward can get better now that 
he has an action plan."

This is very exciting for the CVS community as we are hoping it will help shed light on this subject and make people more aware of this very real illness. 

Chandra Wilson, the spokesperson for CVS, will be directing the episode! 

She will also be on "The Talk"(on CBS) on Thursday Nov. 15th to talk about the Grey's Anatomy episode.

I hope you will watch it with me and help spread the word!
