National Syringomyelia Awareness Month
Here is a little info about how the organization that started it all.
The ASAP logo was designed by founder Barbara White in 1988. The emblem was designed to represent both her home and her diagnosis. The center star denotes the State of Texas. The innermost design embodies the brain, spine, and nervous system.
The ASAP acronym signified the need for information, awareness and a cure as soon as possible. The organization was originally The American Syringomyelia Alliance Project, Inc but changed its name to include Chiari in April 2009. ASAP has always provided information on both Syringomyelia and Chiari and changed its name so that others would know.
In Memory of ASAP’s co-founders, Barbara & Don White.
