imageA little about the Dysautonomia Support Network:

imageThe Dysautonomia Support Network is a U.S. based 501 (c) (3), non-profit organization providing support, resources, education and advocacy for patients affected by the many forms of Dysautonomia and related conditions such as Connective Tissue Disorders, Mast Cell Activation Disorders, Chiari Malformation and Gastric Motility Disorders.

Volunteers are trained to help patients through every stage of their journey, from diagnosis to advocacy. THey promote a positive but realistic environment and a sense of community in our national and state chapters.

What is Dysautonomia? Well, here’s the short answer:

Dysautonomia (or autonomic neuropathy) is a term for various conditions in which the autonomic nervous system (ANS) does not work correctly. Dysautonomia is a type of neuropathy affecting the nerves that carry information from the brain and spinal cord to the heart, bladder, intestines, sweat glands, pupils, and blood vessels.

There is no cure. There are only a few treatment options available. Very few  doctors have an understanding of this illness and even fewer specialize. It took me 10+ years of seeing countless doctors before I was diagnosed and another 10 years before I found doctors who  are actually able to work, treat, and manage my illness.

I hope you grab one of these great shirts as your donation will help spread awareness. Help educate doctors and patients alike. Help research new treatments and look for a cure.
