From May 15 to June 15 it is National Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month. Tourette’s awareness is something important to me so in honor of tourette’s awareness I have designed a living locket and a tag necklace that symbolizes tourette’s awareness. Fifty percent of proceeds will go to the Tourette Syndrome Association in Bayside, New York. This is the only national, voluntary health organization for people with Tourette Syndrome. Marked by involuntary body movements and vocal sounds called tics, it is estimated that some 200,000 Americans have the disorder, with millions more manifesting associated conditions. National Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month, which was first established by TSA in 1997, provides an opportunity for the TSA, its chapters and others in the TS community to educate the public about this much misunderstood and misdiagnosed neurological condition. Remember ever piece of jewelry counts and will help spread the word!
