APS Awareness ~ Day 24: SNAPS...who has heard of this? It stands for Seronegative APS. You likely have #SNAPS if you've had a clotting event and other clinical features of #APS, however, your blood tests come back negative. Being diagnosed with SNAPS can be frustrating because it is not widely recognized. For more information check out our SNAPS links page: http://www.apsfa.org/links/links14.htm and the SNAPS paged on the APS Support UK - for people with antiphospholipid syndrome website: http://www.aps-support.org.uk/about-aps/sero-negative-aps.php Don't forget to share today's graphic on your social media sites with #APSAWARENESS 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!
