Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome Awareness Day

Today, I'm blogging for a cause that is not very well known, but everyone should be aware of. It's called Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome (APS). APS is an autoimmune disorder in which the body recognizes certain normal components of blood and/or cell membranes as foreign substances and produces antibodies against them. A wonderful woman I know named Ginger is affected and it breaks my heart to hear when she is unable to be her normal self when she gets sick. Click on the image below to read more about it.

We need to start finding cures for illnesses rather than just treating them!!
