PRP — On the Bright Side of the Dark Side


Editor’s Note:

With a battle cry of “Stay positive, no matter what!”, Rose Fowers (Show Low, AZ) began her PRP journey in October, 2018 at the age of 74 with the onset of symptoms. She joined the PRP Facebook Support Group in November during PRP Awareness Month and has been an active participant ever since.

On Valentines Day (February 14, 2019), with her tongue pressed firmly against the inside of her cheek, she offered the following insights in a post to the 1,481 other PRP Facebookers:

“I have not had to shave my legs and underarms in months.”

✽  The day Rose shaves her legs and underarms will be celebrated as a “Healing Milestone”.

“I have not had to use deodorant in months.”

✽  The day she uses deodorant will be celebrated as a “Healing Milestone”.

“I have not had to drive anywhere thanks to my husband.”

✽  The day she grabs the car keys from her husband and drives where she wants will be celebrated as a “Healing Milestone”.
