Thank you for your support, it means the world to each of us affected by FMD. It is not just the person diagnosed with FMD that it affects, it is our family and friends too.

We are so overwhelmed by the support we have received, from Genetics Alliance to people whom have posted comments from all over the world.

Each of you have made a difference in our lives and for that we thank you.

Thanks, Kari and Jennifer

Jennifer Moreen suffered her first heart attack at age 38 due to undiagnosed Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD). After placement of 6 coronary stents at the age of 40 she has devoted her life to helping others. At age 39 Kari Ulrich was training for a 1/2 marathon when she developed symptoms that led to the diagnosis of FMD. Together Jennifer & Kari Ulrich founded Midwest Women's Vascular Advocates.
