Marfan Syndrome Awareness Wristbands

Raise Awareness of Marfan Syndrome with Custom Bracelets

Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Month is in February, and events specific to Marfan Syndrome are often held during this time. Red or purple are often used as awareness color for Marfan Syndrome awareness. Many events take place for Marfan Syndrome Awareness Month, and custom Marfan Syndrome awareness bracelets can be a part of any event. You can choose any message for your custom silicone wristbands.

A general "Learn About Marfan Syndrome" wristband would work well for a big event, or a more personalized wristband such as "Team Wyatt—Find a Cure to Marfan Syndrome" could be used to show support for an individual.

What is Marfan Syndrome?

According to the Marfan Foundation, Marfan syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects the body's connective tissue. Connective tissue holds all the body's cells, organs and tissue together. It also plays an important role in helping the body grow and develop properly. Here are some additional facts:

  • About 1 in 5,000 people have Marfan syndrome, including men and women of all races and ethnic groups.
  • About 3 out of 4 people with Marfan syndrome inherit it, meaning they get the genetic mutation from a parent who has it. But some people with Marfan syndrome are the first in their family to have it; when this happens it is called a spontaneous mutation.
  • There is a 50 percent chance that a person with Marfan syndrome will pass along the genetic mutation each time they have a child.
  • Life threatening complications from Marfan Syndrome involve the heart and lungs.
  • Some people have a lot of Marfan features at birth or as young children – including serious conditions like aortic enlargement. Others have fewer features when they are young and don't develop aortic enlargement or other signs of Marfan syndrome until they are adults.
  • Some features of Marfan syndrome, like those affecting the heart and blood vessels, bones or joints, can get worse over time.
