Midwest Women’s Vascular Advocates (MWVA) would like to thank all of our Pepsi Refresh supporters:
Our MWVA Advocates
The many FMD patients, friends and family
Pepsi Refresh Everything Canada
All of our Pepsi cause supporters
Although we did not receive the grant, the awareness that was brought to Fibromuscular Dysplasia was phenomenal!
We ended up ranking 22 out of 1000 causes!
There were 21,251 comments made on our Pepsi refresh page, what an incredible way to spread awareness of Fibromuscular Dysplasia! Our MWVA team along with other FMD advocates posted thousands of comments on FMD educational facts, both in the United States and Canada.
Here is just one of the many comments we received, “LADIES: You may not have made it to the top drawer this time, but console yourself with the thought that you have educated MANY, MANY people to this disease! WELL DONE AND KUDOS TO YOUR PERSEVERANCE. You are truly CHAMPIONS!! “
MWVA will continue to raise awareness and support those affected by non inflammatory vascular disease. We are pleased to announce that through the efforts of the Pepsi Refresh everything challenge, Midwest Women's Vascular Advocates and the Joe Niekro Foundation have formed a partnership to help promote Brain Aneurysm Awareness and Education. We are looking forward to working closely with the Joe Niekro Foundation in pursuing our missions and future goals.
