APS Awareness Month ~ Day 25: Do you wear some sort of Medical Alert ID Jewelry? What does it say on it? It is recommended that people who are on oral anticoagulants such as Coumadin or Warfarin wear a medical alert ID. The #APSFA recommends MedicAlert Foundation because they are well known and offer 24/7 access to your medical information. This is important because in the event of an emergency you may not be able to communicate. *not a sponsored post, we just believe in the products!* Please share some comments below about your ID if you wear one and don't forget to share this graphic on all social media platforms with hashtags #APSWARENESS and #GOBURGUNDY APS Awareness Month ~ Day 26: Today's message is a simple one. #APS and #Lupus are sometimes referred to as "sister" diseases. 50% of people who have Lupus are also believed to have APS. Are you one of the 50%? Please be sure to keep sharing these graphics on your social media accounts! It's really helping to get the word out and is great to see people working together globally to bring awareness to APS! Don't forget the hashtags #APSAWARENESS and #GOBURGUNDY when you share! And come back tomorrow for a new graphic!
