Monday, January 28th is the 4TH ANNUAL SMAS AWARENESS DAY AKA "PURPLE DAY"!
Please wear purple in support of people like me who have struggled or are struggling with this illness. More than anything though, wear this color as a way to shout to the world that even in the worst days of doubt and sickness, God is always there holding His child's hand.
WHY? Because 1 in 3 cases isn't properly diagnosed... until autopsy. SMAS is recognized by the Canadian Rare Disease Foundation but not by the US National Organization of Rare Disorders. SMAS is one of the rarest disorders in the world, but 0.013% is NOT too few to save! "When Jesus heard it he said, 'This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it'" (John 11:4).
With God...we will beat the odds!
