What’s your purple awareness ribbon cause? There are many worth fighting for, and Health Promotions Now will help you raise awareness no matter what your purple ribbon cause is. Here are a few of the most common ones:
Crohn’s Disease Awareness
A type of inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s involves chronic inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract. The disease, which most often crops up in individuals between the ages of 20 and 30, has symptoms such as diarrhea and abdominal pain, and it can be life-threatening in some cases.
Cystic Fibrosis Awareness
A chronic disease affecting the digestive system and lungs, cystic fibrosis is inherited and is present in 30,000 Americans. It is caused by a defective gene, and it’s a protein product that leads to the body producing abnormally thick and sticky mucus. As a result, the pancreas becomes obstructed and the lungs clogged. Sixty years ago, few children with the disease survived long enough to attend grade school, but many people with the disease today live into their 30s, 40s and beyond, says the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Advances in treatments thanks to awareness being raised about cystic fibrosis are in part responsible for those with the disease living longer on average today.
The Alzheimer’s Association reports that over five million individuals in the United States currently suffer from Alzheimer’s. One in three senior citizens passes away with either Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia, making it the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.
