June is Dravet Syndrome Awareness month and June 23rd is International Dravet Syndrome Awareness Day. This year, we are recognizing those that we have lost on our first annual Remembrance Day, June 15th.
By raising awareness of Dravet syndrome, our community can increase knowledge in the general public; improve early diagnosis; assure that patient families have the information they need to manage their loved one’s care; and reduce the feelings of isolation faced by patients and their families. This year’s theme is: Join the Fight!
We encourage you each to start thinking ahead about some of the ways you can help DSF’s efforts this June to spread the word about Dravet syndrome and the needs of our community.
- SHARE YOUR SUPPORT
Print off one of our Dravet Awareness Month signs, share a photo of yourself or your family with the sign on social media to show that you are ready to #fightdravet
