but what if you can't sweat?
The inability to sweat is just one of the symptoms
people with Fabry Disease suffer from.
This April we're raising awareness about this rare disease.
Break a sweat for Fabry.
Get up, run, play, dance, work out. Whatever gets you going.
Capture your energy.
Let us see you break a sweat.
Use the hashtag #BreakASweatForFabry and add some sweat emojis 😅
Tag your friends and
challenge them to #BreakASweatForFabry
For every diagnosed Fabry patient,
there are 10 more who don't know
about their condition. Yet.
Fabry disease is a rare, genetic condition which is estimated to affect around 1 in 100,000 people.
Fabry patients lack an enzyme that's supposed to break down certain fats in the body.
As a result these fats continue to build up in body cells, causing damage to organs.
This leads to a range of symptoms, which vary from one person to another.
Take the challenge.
Get your sweat on, take a picture, and share it.
