We who are affected by aortic dissections (patients, families, friends, the loved one left behind if someone has died in this disease) – we all need to help to communicate important things, like the new knowledge that also persons with no trace of connective tissue diseases, can carry genetic mutations that causes aortic dissection.

One way to do this is to get active on the global Aortic Dissection Awareness Day September 19. Then we can benefit of creating interest around our rare disease, by going out in many cities, to many hopitals, in many countries, all over the globe on the same day.
