If you’ve followed the blog long enough, then you know that I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. This rare disease affects the body’s collagen, and causes everything from poor healing— do you know how many people thought I had diabetes as a kid?— to frequent joint dislocations. As you can probably guess, it’s not a fun syndrome to live with.
Although I was born with EDS (as were my mom and brother), awareness of this syndrome is sadly lacking, so many people are diagnosed later in life, like me. The earlier EDS is caught, the less time you have to do unknown damage to your joints! After receiving my diagnosis, I realized how important it was to help raise awareness for this illness that most people have never heard of!
That’s why I’m co-hosting a giveaway for an Ehlers Danlos Syndrome awareness bundle with five other awesome bloggers!! My co-hosts are Hannah from Sunshine and Spoons, Sarah from My Stripy Life, Sara from A Zebra Writes, Jenni from 1visibl3Girl, and Mary from The Headache Heroine.
Wondering what’s in the bundle? It includes:
5 2” tall EDS ribbon decals from the Sunshine and Spoons Shop
1 EDS necklace from Kat Makes Stuff
1 heather gray EDS awareness t-shirt from the Sunshine and Spoons Shop. (Winner can choose any size from S-XXL)
3 EDS ribbon lapel pins from the Sunshine and Spoons Shop
10 Lemon Challenge cards from the Sunshine and Spoons Shop
10 EDS fact cards from the Sunshine and Spoons Shop
3 adult sized EDS bracelets from the Sunshine and Spoons Shop
11 ounce EDS Awareness mug from the Sunshine and Spoons Shop
I know what you’re thinking: sounds like a pretty great giveaway, right? I actually have a Celiac Disease Awareness mug from the Sunshine and Spoons Shop, and it’s one of my favorite mugs. Any and all of these prizes in the bundle are going to be a great conversation starter with people who don’t know about EDS!
