February is Marfan Syndrome awareness month! In order to raise awareness I'll be posting a Marfact a day - provided by the wonderful NMF. I absolutely love looking at the profile pictures and status' of the Marfamily on Facebook. We're all so intent on getting the word out. Marfan Syndrome is not an extremely rare disorder; 1 in 5,000 is actually a pretty big number.
Have Heart for Marfan Sydrome!
Spreading the word about a condition that can be fatal especially if it's not caught and monitored. Marfan Syndrome is a condition effecting the connective tissues of the body especially in the heart, lungs, spine and eyes. Scary how something that effects 1 in 5000 people can be so unknown!
