Today all around the world members of the Ehlers-Danlos community and their friends and family will be wearing their stripes to raise awareness of the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders.
For EDS awareness month my two youngest children were invited by their headteachers to present an assembly to the school on EDS (video coming soon). They absolutely smashed it!! And now all of their school friends and teachers have a greater understanding of hEDS, HSD and their amazing ability to paint on their smile and just be kids no matter what they are dealing with everyday.
Today, they were up early and dressed in their stripes ready to go into school. As they were greeted in the playground some of their friends had remembered about ‘Show your Stripes’ day and were wearing their stripes in support.
Lets see what money we raise for charity 😉 I’ll keep you posted.
Are you still wondering what all of this is about? Ask me why the zebra?
