As a way to showcase who and what we are, we decided to update our current banners. These banners will be displayed at medical conferences, family conferences, fundraisers, or any other event in which signage will add to our cause. A board member designed the three banners below and we had them printed by "A Big Difference Signs" from St. Louis. The first banner talks about the specifics of Shwachman Diamond Syndrome as a genetic syndrome. The second banner displays our logo and a wonderful collage of several patients living with SDS. Lastly, the third banner showcases the Shwachman Diamond Syndrome Foundation's mission and goals.
If you haven't checked out the newest medical articles regarding Shwachman Diamond Syndrome published in 2015, we encourage you to do so. We added 21 new articles to our list of articles to our "Research Articles" page. To date, we now have a total of 383 research articles written about Shwachman Diamond Syndrome. That number is remarkable and we are very grateful for our wonderful doctors and researchers!
On October 3, the "Wade's World" team supported Wade (a four year old SDS patient) and the Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome Foundation at the annual Be the Match Walk+Run in St. Louis. Wade's parents, Adam and Jenni, ran the 4-mile run in honor of Wade (with their best times, we might add). Joan Mowery, founder of SDSF, was also present at the Walk+Run event as she set up a table to showcase the Shwachman Diamond Syndrome Foundation within the exhibitor booths. Prior to the race, the team sold Wade's World t-shirts and collected donations to raise more than $2,000 to be donated to SDSF.
