International Alagille Syndrome Awareness Day – January 24, 2020

Awareness Day Toolkit

Alagille Syndrome is a rare disease, an autosomal dominant, genetic disorder associated with liver, heart, eye and skeletal abnormalities, facial features and more. ALGS Warriors may have any combination or severity of these symptoms, making ALGS one of the most difficult rare diseases to diagnose and treat.

January 24, 2020 International Alagille Syndrome Awareness Day is a day to bring Alagille Syndrome to the forefront, celebrate our ALGS families and increase knowledge with physicians, scientists and in our communities! Together we can use our voices to help everyone become #ALGSAware!

Below you will find helpful tools for spreading awareness including social media posts, downloadable graphics and other printable resources. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for even more shareable information – @ALGSAlliance.

The ALGSAwareness Ribbon

The Alagille Syndrome Alliance awareness ribbon for ALGS reflects the significantly complex and uniquely varying severity of the disease throughout our ALGS community. This ribbon recognizes those affected by just a few organ systems and those affected by all organ systems. It is our hope that we can unite, relate and empower everyone dealing with ALGS, either mild or severe,and bring together those with significant organ representation who may not focus on ALGS as a whole but rather the organ system most affected.

We want our ALGS heart families, ALGS liver families, kidney families, and vascular families struggling through their diagnoses to know we are here fighting for them. We want to impress on our community that Alagille Syndrome cannot be treated as one single problem. Together, we can fight to find the cure through researching each organ system and supporting families who relate more to one significantly affected symptom.

TheAlagille Syndrome awareness ribbon is meant to encourage our ALGS families, scientists, researchers, and donors and show the world that we cannot be separated by symptom but rather united by uniqueness.

YELLOW – for the liver and digestive system.
RED – for the heart and circulatory system.
GREEN – for the kidneys and renal system.
BLUE – for the lungs and pulmonary system.
PURPLE – for the brain and vascular system.
CREAM/PEARL – for the skeletal system.

As Alagille Syndrome affects so many systems, we want to spread the word to other communities. Our research could help others with quicker diagnosis and access to better treatments. If you are a part of any organizations or groups serving the communities of any of these systems, please share our information. Together, we can find better treatments and a cure for ALGS and other associated diseases!
