Survivor

I am a chiari malformation survivor! I had no clue that a ribbon was even out there for this until my 16 year old son did his health project on this after I was diagnosed.

Dark Purple Awareness Ribbon
by: Gloria

Thank you Stacey, I have added Chiari Malformation to Dark Purple Ribbon. We wish you and your daughter all the best. I have added a definition and link so readers can understand this condition better. If you have any other comments to share with us on how your daughter is doing or about Chiari Malformation we would love to hear from you.

Definition: (Source: Mayo Clinic)
Chiari malformation (kee-AHR-ee mal-for-MAY-shun) is a condition in which brain tissue protrudes into your spinal canal. It occurs when part of your skull is abnormally small or misshapen, pressing on your brain and forcing it downward. Chiari malformation is uncommon, but improved imaging tests have led to more frequent diagnoses
