Angela Urbano

President of Blount’s Disease Strong Foundation

Angela is a mother to four children and an advocate for Blount’s Disease. Her advocacy efforts led the State of Kansas to approve a State Proclamation for Blount’s Disease Awareness Day. She also contributes as a writer for The Mighty website in honor of her daughter and special needs son. When her daughter was diagnosed at 18 months, old she felt alone with little support. Research lacks on this condition and Angela took action to make sure other parents across the world don’t have to face these challenges alone.
