Wellcome to our Aortic Disease Awareness Day – September 19 – page. April 9, 2019, The Marfan Foundation have launched a NEW WEBSITE for September 19 and the Aortic Disease Awareness Day. We recommend all our friends to visit this page. In one month from today, May 9, 2019, we will shut down this page.
The new page you find here: September 19 – The Marfan Foundation
Lady Aorta is a result of the Aortic Disease Awareness Day – September 19 campaign, and the work of a Team behind the scenes. She was originally invented by an aortic survivor in Italy named Shahrezade.
It all started as an idea for one image, and then the idea grew and Lady Aorta started getting a life of her own. Perhaps Lady Aorta can be a help for doctors and nurses, when talking to families about rare aortic diseases in the future. Especially when trying to explain for younger persons about aortic disease.
Sometimes photos and images found on internet and in medical brochures can be quite frightening. Also for adults. If you think Lady Aorta is a good thing, please help us share her to doctors, nurses and paramedics. Perhaps they can have use of her already tomorrow.
You can also download images of Lady Aorta from our download site
As all our image, they can only be used for use that does not involve money, no sales of items, no soliciting, no fundraising etc. To print them and give them for free to hospitals is one example of a great use.
