I am selling purple bracelets to raise awareness and funds to help people inflicted with Hidradenitis Suppurativa.
Bracelets say "I Care About Someone With Hidradenitis Suppurativa".
Bracelets cost 10 NIS (Approximately 2 USD, but with the dollar today...). Orders in Israel can be dealt with immediately, and I'm currently working on a system to handle international orders.
All proceeds go to The Hidradenitis Suppurativa Foundation which strives to improve the quality of life of those suffering from HS.

Pass it on!

Hidradenitis Suppurativa is a common, painful, debilitating, and chronic inflammatory skin disease. HS variably presents clinically with painful and chronically recurring, deep-seated follicular nodules, papules, pustules and abscesses, leading to suppuration, fibrosis, distortion, degradation and hypertrophic scarring of the skin. The etiology/pathogenesis/cause of HS is not known. HS remains a distinct and separate disease. In the past, direct comparisons of HS to sweat gland and acne diseases have delayed the planning and development of focused HS research which could discover the actual cause.

The wide, unpredictable and non-linear progression of HS may lead to significant long-term adverse effects on mental and physical health, severely reducing the quality of life. Those with HS often fail to receive appropriate, empathic recognition for a disease that is largely invisible, as it appears mostly in and around the intimate areas of their bodies.

HS is difficult to live with as it is so often resistant to therapy. Depression, frustration and anxiety are common as is withdrawal from social, work and sexual relationships due to chronic pain, restricted mobility and persistent draining lesions.
