Follow, Share, Engage
October kicks off Vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (VEDS) Action Month — a great time to come together, spread the word and support one another. This year, our theme is “Empowering the Community.” We’ll shine a light on invaluable VEDS resources (listed below) and share useful advice from our community members.
The first step in Action Month? Join us on social media! Hit like, share, and leave comments! Help our community stay well-informed and connected. And remember to use #chargingforward4VEDS!
Having trouble knowing what to share on social? You can start by sharing our offerings. Want to make it more personal? Consider sharing a moment where you led the charge for VEDS awareness, expressing gratitude towards a medical professional who made a difference, or celebrating someone who’s been your rock. Share any part of your VEDS journey you’re comfortable with, from diagnosis to hopes for the future. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #chargingforward4VEDS and tag us @VEDSMovement on X (formerly Twitter), Facebook, and Instagram, so we can celebrate, learn, and advocate together! Together, we’ll light the way for everyone touched by VEDS, making this month full of learning, support, and team effort.
