Raising Awareness Through Celebs & PSAs

Scrub's Donald Faison is in Lupus PSAThe Lupus Foundation of America enlisted the celebritydom of Donald Faison and Sarah Chalke from NBC’s ABC’s Scrub’s cast to create a few great PSAs designed to raise awareness about the disease. This got me thinking. I would love to see some celeb PSAs for Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, Scleoderma … how much time do you have? This list could go on for a while. I would also love to see a PSA that takes a crack at educating the public about what it means to have an “invisible” disease like arthritis. A little understanding could go a long way. And maybe sometime in the near future we won’t have to do a fake limp into the mall after parking in a handicap space with our placard.

Which disease would your fantasy PSA focus on and and what would you like to see it communicate to the public? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
