Today is the 9th World Moyamoya Day! We are still trying to get it recognized by WHO as a Day. The Mighty doesn't even have a place for us, except to lump those of us who've strokes in with them.

What is Moyamoya Disease? It's a rare, progressive cerebral vascular disease that for some unknown reason causes the smooth lining of our cerebral arteries to inflame, causing blockage of blood flow. Due to this blockage our bodies form collateral vessels that attempt to provide blood to the area without but are extremely fragile and tend burst causing hemorrhagic stroke's. There is no cure for Moyamoya, the only treatment is to try and slow the progression down by doing revascularization surgery of the area devoid of blood flow. #MoyamoyaWarrior
