Ehlers-Danlos in August's Chronique Spotlight

Ehlers-Danlos National FoundationWhat is Ehlers-Danlos?

Individuals with the Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) have a defect in their connective tissue, the tissue that provides support to many body parts such as the skin, muscles, ligaments, and organs. The six major types of EDS are classified according to their manifestations of signs and symptoms, such as stretching skin, unstable joints, and tissue fragility (in organs and blood vessels). Unfortunately there is no current cure for EDS so many folks live in constant pain, are disabled, or die prematurely from ruptured aneurysms.

To learn more about EDS, you can checkout the foundation's website at , contact EDNF by phone at 213-368-3800, or attend the 2008 EDS Learning Conference, July 31–August 2, 2008 in Houston, Texas.

Visit our Chronique Spotlight page. 10% of each sale that we make in the month of August will be donated to EDNF.*

Be Well!

*All over our county and around the world, there are men & women that work tirelessly to offer new drugs, cures for diseases for which there are none & hope for people everywhere whose lives are touched by illness. Chronique Couture wants to do our part too! 10% of each sale that we make will be given back to our monthly Chronique Spotlight organization. As our monthly sales grow, with the support of our customers, so will our monthly gift. As fun as it is to pimp out our Chroniqueness, the preference would always be to not need some of the items we must use to medicate or stay comfortable. Chronique Couture will focus on keeping it cute, while offering our small part to those working for cures.
