#LoveYourGloves #RaynaudsAwarenessMonth

Posted By HMSA Social Media Coordinator,

As we mentioned this morning on our Marfan syndrome post, February is also Raynaud’s awareness month, so here’s a timely reminder to ‪#‎LoveYourGloves‬ from our Social Media Coordinator Kim, who knows ALL about keeping warm since she works on the ice.

She’s sporting four layers to keep her core temperature up and those mittens are over a pair of thermal gloves!

So, how are you lot handling the cold(ish) snap? Everyone prepared for colder weather if it comes? Has anyone already succumbed to chilblains, and what are your top tips for managing them?

Logo misuse – Copyright law

Posted By HMSA Social Media Coordinator,

Earlier this week we brought to your attention the importance of checking that fundraisers using our name are in fact authorised to do so after an incident in which some of our supporters ‘donated’ money to an individual (not known to us) who neither passed on the funds raised, nor sent out the items promised.
Today we find it necessary to remind you that while use of petition websites to raise awareness of the hypermobility syndromes is your right and an admirable goal, using the HMSA website, logo and intellectual property without our consent violates copyright law and can in fact have a negative impact on the work we’re doing with medical professionals and representatives of the health services to promote awareness and secure more effective treatment for patients with the syndromes. We are always willing to consider supporting a campaign or help with the creation of a petition, please contact us on if you’d like our assistance.
Please note that while we appreciate that the intent is to help our cause, unauthorised use of our name can in fact damage it, so for these and other legal reasons we cannot allow use of our property without authorisation and will be forced to take action where appropriate when our material is used improperly.

#MarfansAwareness #KnowTheSigns

Posted By HMSA Social Media Coordinator,

Monday morning and a big shout out to our Marfan members, our friends on the other side of the pond are shouting ‪#‎MarfanAwareness‬ in an effort to make sure that the general public ‪#‎KnowTheSigns‬.

It’s going to be a busy month – between their campaign, Raynaud’s awareness month (more on that later, nippy out there – got your gloves?) and the Hypermobility Syndromes Awareness Week at the end of the month we’ve lots on.

How’s your February looking?
