Las Vegas, NV, December 22, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Jane Adams stands by the belief that all should be treated with dignity, proper care, concern, and compassion. She is an advocate of the fact that human beings should proceed with love, not fear for all. She uses her social media platform and her blog to be the voice for those who need the support. Her blog “Jane’s Journey of Peace” can be found at www.janesjourneyofpeace.wordpress.com. It is here according to Adams, that “she will guide others in how they may take a stand for the greater good,” and where she plans to “be a source of much needed support, and inspiration for all who grace her page."
Adams was raised in part by her grandparents. According to Adams, she grew up with many different kinds of animals and the neighbors referred to her family's farm as the "Adam's Zoo." She states, “this is where my love for animals began and my inclination to protect them.” She firmly maintains that she "owes much about who she is at the core of her being to her grandparents”. She is a Christian. She expresses that she “follows the scriptures to do good by all things and that Jesus Christ is her most important source of inspiration, and strength." Adams has recently moved 2000 miles from where she grew up for health reasons. She plans to continue to perpetuate good and to speak out for those who need her the most. She is a documented voice for the voiceless, as she signs many petitions for both human and animals in terms of advocating for social justice. Adams is an advocate who strongly opposes vivisection (animal testing). Her firm belief is that not one living being deserves to suffer at the hands of another. Adams states, “Animals are innocent beings deserving of love, concern, and proper care." The most recent petition she signed, according to Adams was one to stop the practice of animal testing on baby monkeys. Adams conveyed, “It (animal testing) is cruel and barbaric, these monkeys (all animals) need to be protected.” She is on social media via Facebook at B. Jane Adams; Google +, at B. Jane Adams, and on Twitter, Jane @janesjourneyofpeace.
Adams suffers from an illness called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a lack of sufficient collagen production. There are many today suffering from Ehlers-Danlos, and the severity differs from person to person. Their "mascot" is a zebra, keeping in mind “no 2 zebras have the same stripes,” much like no two people suffering from Ehlers-Danlos have the same severity of the illness. The illness presents itself in different ways. Since those suffering from this have inadequate collagen, thus inadequate proclivity to healing, different secondary illnesses can come about in each person. Adams states, “It (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) has put a strain on her where at times, where housework can at times seem as if it’s an extraordinary task.” According to various medical educational platforms and to Adams from her understanding and experience, those who are diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome suffer differently and many have plenty of obstacles to overcome. One person with this illness is not like another, in that the secondary illnesses which present themselves are a reason for that.
Adams is also an advocate and source of support for anyone afflicted with any rare illness who reaches out to her. Technically speaking, it was stated that Adams first became permanently disabled in 1997 at the age of 33, due to afflictions relating as a result of her illness. This has not stopped her from perpetuating good, and using her voice to stand up not just for herself, but for others. It is evident to her current following, as a general opinion from social media interaction that she is in fact “able” and inspiring in her ability to use her voice and optimism to do her part to change the world for the better. She wants to be known as “a positive, strong force of good in this world, who will continue to stand up to be an example of compassion and to advocate for the rights of anyone suffering or currently oppressed.”
