  1. Hello, So happy I found your blog! Filled with good information and inspiration for people with chronic illness and their carers too. I wondered if you have heard of a new resource called EazyHold? I believe it may be of interest to your readers. It’s for children and adults who have conditions which make it difficult to hold utensils, toothbrushes, pens…even toys, which with the holiday season upon us are so important for all special needs kiddos and their parents who need gift options too. I would be honored if you would take a peek at our website at eazyhold.com and/or Facebook.com/eazyhold and let me know what you think of our new product? I along with my two sisters designed it for the chronic arthritis in our own hands… and now schools, hospitals and therapy centers are beginning to learn of it too. Thank you, Kerry Mellin
