Lady Aorta

Lady Aorta is a result of the Aortic Dissection 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.

The reason is that many of the designs (the original flyer, the medical drawings on the flyers, the design of t-shirt, design of design- and profile-items, the logotype, the slogan) have been donated or allowed for use by this campaign – since we do not run charities, we do not sell things and we do not charge people money in any kind, to take part in our aortic awareness movement. Some items are bought under such licenses from photographers through photo sites with use of funds from donors who made donations since we go the “non-money” way to make this campaign free for anyone to take part in. Also for people who have no money to spare. Music used in our videos are used also with these same kind of limited rights for use, from the composers and musicians.

Snow Leopard (Panthera Unica) represents Aortic Awareness

The Snow Leopard (Panthera Unica) is a rare animal that has its natural habitat in parts of the mountain regions in Asia.

Snow leopards are carnivore and actively hunt their prey. The total wild population of the snow leopard is estimated at only 4,000 to 6.500 individuals. It can not roar like other big cats, like Lions or Tigers, and that makes the Snow Leopard a “silent killer”.

Aortic disease like AAA (abdominal aortic aneurysm) cause many deaths because they are usually silent until a medical emergency occurs and they either burst totally or turns into an aortic dissection. AAA is therefore often also called a “silent killer” because there are usually no obvious symptoms of the disease before it becomes acute.
