The Facebook page which publicised and organised Red Shoe Day to remember people who have lost their lives to Lyme Disease and other invisible illnesses gained the support of nearly 1000 people. Many people from around the world posted photographs of themselves and their families wearing their red shoes (or slippers, socks, or even red toenails); evidence that awareness of Lyme Disease, related diseases, and the severity of them is growing around the world. Hopefully this will lead to greater awareness in the medical community too, and result in faster, more effective treatment in the early stages - most importantly, hopefully it will prevent further deaths in the future.
One of the most poignant images posted on Red Shoe Day's facebook page is the one I want to share below. I don't think the photograph needs any explanation or description, I think this emotive image of empty shoes perfectly represents the reason for Red Shoe Day.
