Plan to wear pink. The FCS Foundation chose the color pink to represent the lighter than normal color of blood when it has a high amount of fat in it. Plan to wear pink on November 6th.
Raising FCS awareness is an on-going initiative. Here are some other ways you can keep the conversation going.
- Connect to others living with FCS by following the FCS Foundation Facebook page.
