Medical students learn this adage: When you hear hoof beats look for horses, not zebras. Simply put: Most ailments are common and rare ailments are rare. Physicians are taught to look for the common rather than the uncommon. Though the advice may seem practical and innocent for the physician, it falls woefully short for the lone zebras of the world.
ARD sufferers (zebras) are often ignored by physicians, misdiagnosed, or simply chalked up as "depressed" individuals. The ARD awareness pin, designed by Karen Steward, serves as a tangible tribute to the person who suffers from adhesion related disorder. The solid black portion of the pin not only represents this medically hidden and largely ignored illness, but also represents the darkness and loneliness that surrounds the life of an ARD sufferer. The striped portion of the ribbon boldly proclaims to the world that zebras do exist!
If you are fundraising or promoting ARD awareness and in need of large quantities of the pin-or any product found at this website-contact Karen for discounts.
