September is Reye’s Syndrome Awareness Month!

Just in time for school, September of each year is designated as Reye’s Syndrome Awareness Month!

Just in time for Reye’s Syndrome Awareness Month, the National Reye’s Syndrome Foundation is offering some great tee’s in 3 fabulous colors to help spread the word that Kids and Aspirin Products Don’t Mix!

We hope you care enough about eradicating this child-killing disease to support our programs and help us get the word out by purchasing and wearing a “Be Wise About Reye’s” tee-shirt.  RS Awareness Month Tees

Tee’s on sale for $15.00 now include:

Ash  — Light Blue  — Bright Green

Tees can be ordered until August 20, 2013 so they can be shipped to you before September.

This is a crowd sourced awareness campaign and we have to sell at least a total of 10 tees in the color you choose in order to have them printed.  If you order a tee, and we don’t meet the goal of selling 10 tees in that color, you will not be charged and your tee will not be printed.  If you need more information about how this works, email the foundation at: nrsf(at)reyessyndrome(dot)org

We will take credit card orders over the phone also at: 800.233.7393

Join us in eliminating the incidence of this child-killing disease! Order Your Tee Today!!  It’s tax-deductible, too!

Thank You!

Spring 2012: Message From The NRSF President

johnAlready, this year is shaping up to be a busy year as we extend our Reye’s Syndrome education and awareness outreach.

This year, we are asking families to come together in support of Reye’s Syndrome awareness.  We are asking the older generations to impart their knowledge to the younger generations, and we invite those younger generations to become active in supporting Reye’s Syndrome education and awareness.  Until we find a cure for Reye’s Syndrome, we must continue putting the message out; Kids and aspirin products don’t mix!  We must hand Reye’s Syndrome awareness down from generation to generation until we find a cure!

The uniqueness of the National Reye’s Syndrome Foundation is that all involved  are family.  My wife, Terri, and I have met most of you, and your families, at annual meetings, at hospital bedsides, at chapter gatherings, and at various fund raising events over the years.  The Foundation itself is one big family, with one single goal in mind; the eradication of a monstrous disease!  We don’t have hundreds of thousands of members, or donors.  We know each of you by name, and the name of your loved one attacked by Reye’s Syndrome.  You are not a stranger, you are family.

In today’s electronic world, it is easier than ever to stay in touch, and it is easier than ever to create support for Reye’s Syndrome education and awareness.

How simple it is to ask your boss if every  Friday, or every third Friday of the month be designated a Reye’s Syndrome Awareness Friday, and perhaps a ‘dress down day’, or potluck can be held with proceeds donated to the NRSF in support of educational programs.  Or maybe one sports game at school each year can be dedicated to Reye’s Syndrome Awareness and ticket proceeds  donated to the NRSF for educational programs.  And, for all those who have ‘friends’ on Facebook and other social media sites, creating a Birthday Wish Cause, or Memorial, with the NRSF as recipient of the gift, is a wonderful and so easy way to support Reye’s Syndrome Awareness.  It also helps the NRSF family grow stronger in outreach programs.

We are in this together, you and I.  We are partners in a common cause.   baby1

We are guardians of children past, present and future, and we shall not let them down.

Join the NRSF family in this most important cause.
