Wobbly Wednesday: Raising Awareness One Cupcake at a Time

November 6th was International Nystagmus Awareness Day or more affectionately, Wobbly Wednesday. Nystagmus is an involuntary movement of the eyes which often seriously reduces vision.  For those unfamiliar with the condition, they have the impression that the person is always shaking their head as if to say, “no”.

Wobbly Wednesday

My son was diagnosed with Congenital Nystagmus when he was just an infant. I have written about our experiences previously, Raising Awareness for Nystagmus.  To help raise awareness as well as funds for research and scholarships, my son asked to bake cupcakes.

My kids love cupcakes and with the inspiration of Pinterest, they worked together to bake three delicious varieties and raised $68.  I am so very proud of their efforts!
