First off, Happy New Year! Mindy indy is back to blogging after a break for the holidays. I've been making a lot of custom comics lately! This one is for the Familial Dysautonomia Foundation. Familial Dysautonomia (FD) is a rare genetic neurological condition that affects the sensory and autonomic nervous systems, causing severe gastrointestinal, cardiac, pulmonary, orthopedic, renal and ophthalmologic problems. The Dysautonomia Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity that supports medical treatment, research, public awareness and social services for the benefit of people afflicted with FD. The Foundation has established the world's only two FD treatment centers and is the largest single source of funding for research and treatment specifically for the benefit of people with FD.
The FD Foundation contacted me after meeting me at the Toys on the Hudson convention. They wanted a comic to brighten up their Facebook Page. The comic is educational for people not familiar with the condition, and is also something that families and people with FD can relate to. I did 3 comics so far for them, and they'll want me to do more if it gets good responses on Facebook, so please "share" and "like" the comic on their page! Thanks a bunch!
