The Diva´s Weekly Challenge # 151: Sting Theory: Möbius Syndrome Awareness Day
Möbius Syndrome Awareness Day is an event which is celebrated globally each year on January 24th- the birth date of Professor Paul Julius Möbius, the doctor who first diagnosed the Möbius Syndrome in 1888. The aim of Möbius Syndrome Awareness Day is to raise awareness about this rare condition and to educate others about it.
Möbius syndrome is a rare neurological disorder that is present at birth. It primarily affects the 6th and 7th cranial nerves, leaving those with the condition unable to move their faces (they can’t smile, frown, suck, grimace or blink their eyes) and unable to move their eyes laterally.
For more information on Möbius Syndrome and Möbius Syndrome Awareness Day please visit http://www.moebiussyndrome.com/ and Möbius-Syndrom Deutschland e.V. (“Lachen mit dem Herzen”; German Website).
To raise awareness for this disorder is this week's Challenge. I decided to use the Möbius Syndrome Foundation's logo for my work. The logo is so beautiful and I like it so much.
