The Yes We Can Van

I had the pleasure of meeting one of my newer Facebook friends yesterday.  Her name is Carole Brown, she's originally from the UK, buts now calls the USA home.

Carole is currently traveling across the United States in her "Yes We Can Van". It's a vintage 1970's VW camper van.  

The main purpose to raise awareness  about Myasthenia Gravis (MG). MG is a rare under diagnosed auto-immune neuro-muscular disease that causes severe muscle weakness, currently there is no cure.  Anyone can be affected by MG, it knows no age, race, or ethnicity. 

Carole's mom lived with MG, it has become her life's mission to tell others what MG is and how it affects people's lives. She is currently traveling along the southern states en route to California.  She plans to visit MG chapter meetings and visit with others whose lives have been affected by MG.

  Wishing you safe travels my friend!


  1. How fun that you got to meet your FB friend. Her van is great! I bet you had a lot to talk about since you suffer from the same illness as her mom.

    Happy Saturday dear friend!

  2. YAY!!! I am so thrilled to be even a tiny part of this...I love it! Can't wait to meet both of you!
