What is Idiopathic Angioedema Day?
IAE Day was created by The Life Without A Fork Advocacy Group, Inc. on 23 June 2014 to celebrate the largest number and least recognized sufferers of all cases of angioedema, idiopathic angioedema, also socio-medically designated as, #The80Percent.
A community event sponsored by, Life Without A Fork, Inc., we are acknowledging, celebrating and honoring those of us who are living with and dying from Idiopathic Angioedema! People with all forms of this condition as well as the overlapping conditions of mast-cell activation disorders, urticaria and anaphylaxis are absolutely welcome and encouraged to participate.
Made with loving care each year personally by Vanessa Williams, we more than welcome our swell community and supporters to participate in our “Annual e-Quilt for Idiopathic Angioedema Day! 100 Voices! 100 Likes! 100 Shares!” It takes Vanessa approximately 40+ hours to make each e-Quilt the unique piece of art that is a result of her dedication to creating continued hope and beautiful memories for years to come.
It takes a village to enhance Vanessa’s vision with each individual’s contributions to the e-Quilt and, once completed, sharing the wonderful piece of art that they have helped in creating on this designated day of 23 June in honor of us, #The80Percent!
May this day forever be a reminder that survivors of this rare, life-threatening, condition deserve to be seen, heard, respected, and properly treated in their respective social, medical, and big pharma communities, that our fallen soldiers should be remembered for their struggle as well as the courageous efforts it took for them to keep going until being called, “Home” and, #MayYourSwellsForeverBeMinimalAtWorst.
