September is Chiari Malformation Awareness Month
Awareness causes throughout the year are a great way to educate others, and to honor those we love who live with and battle conditions/disorders/diseases recognized each month.
Smith Decals celebrates September as this month brings awareness to Chiari Malformation. Chiari has shook our family to the core and has brought great change to the Smith Decals family, as Paige had brain decompression surgery in 2013.
Chiari Malformation is a serious neurological disorder where the bottom part of the brain, the cerebellum, descends out of the skull and crowds the spinal cord, putting pressure on both the brain and spine and causing many symptoms. [souce]
