We need your help to make this year’s National EOS Awareness Week bigger than ever!
Please help us spread the word leading up to, during and beyond Australia's National EOS Awareness Week, 12-18 August 2012.
Your help today will assist us to better help you (and everyone living with or caring for someone with an EGID) into the future through raising awareness of eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders.
Below you will find several resources to download and ideas to assist you in your efforts.
Don’t forget to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us how you helped spread the word and if you want to send us photos of you celebrating National EOS Awareness Week we would love to include them on this page and in our enewsletter.
Happy National EOS Awareness Week!
and remember... this is a week where together, we can all make a difference!
Eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (EGID) occur when eosinophils (pronounced ee-oh-sin-oh-fills), a type of white blood cell, are found in above-normal amounts within the gastrointestinal tract. The eosinophils generally attack foods (or air-borne allergens) creating an allergic response and causing inflammation wherever they may gather.
Having a large number of these white blood cells (where they shouldn’t be) can make people very sick. Sometimes they can feel nauseous, or they can have; stomach and chest pain, heartburn, it can hurt to swallow, they feel like vomiting or get food stuck in their throats.
Feeling sick is no fun! That’s why we are raising funds to help find a cure!
