Fight Like A Girl EDS 21.8 T-Shirts and Gifts

Fight Like A Girl Gifts, a specialty division of Awareness Gift Boutique, has recently introduced a new cause to its exclusive Fight Like A Girl T-shirt And Gift Collection. EDS aka Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome is a serious connective tissue disorder caused by a defect in the synthesis of collagen. This potentially life-threatening disease does not get its fair share of attention and is in dire need of awareness. Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome affects both males and females of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. Initially, the incidence rate for EDS ranged from 1 in 250,000 to 1 in 500,000 people, but these estimates were soon found to be vastly inaccurate as the disorder received further study and medical professionals became more adept at accurately diagnosing EDS.  It is imperative that the public become aware of not only what EDS but that they become educated on its signs and symptoms since earlier EDS diagnosis means earlier treatment which is critical to an EDS patient’s prognosis. Fight Like A Girl Gifts has chosen to play a role in raising the level of awareness for this little-known but medically significant disease.
