Port Washington, NY (PRWEB) August 05, 2013
We are proud to announce that we are now The Marfan Foundation. Our new brand, which includes a refreshed logo and a new tagline, better reflects who we are in 2013 and better positions us for accomplishing our mission of creating a brighter future for people with Marfan syndrome and related disorders. Our new website will be launched on September 16, 2013.
The Marfan Foundation is an evolution of our organization’s previous name, the National Marfan Foundation. It places the focus on Marfan syndrome, which is at the heart of our mission. Our new tagline, “Know the Signs. Fight for Victory.” reflects our goals for early diagnosis and proper treatment so that people living with Marfan syndrome and related disorders can live a long and productive life. It also inspires people to take action and join us in the fight for victories over Marfan syndrome and related disorders.
Complementing our new name and tagline is our contemporary new logo, which is comprised of two interlocking links that represent our collaborations and connections with patients and families, the medical community, and corporate and government partners. The logo also symbolizes our work with Marfan syndrome and related disorders, which have overlapping features and overlapping treatments.
We continue to press forward with research, patient support, and education, as we have since our founding in 1981. As always, we tirelessly advance the research for treatments that save lives and dramatically enhance quality of life for affected people. We provide a supportive community for everyone affected by Marfan syndrome and related disorders. We always have the latest and most accurate information to educate everyone—from patients and families to medical professionals and the general public—about these conditions.
We will not rest until we’ve achieved victory—a world in which everyone with Marfan syndrome or a related disorder receives a proper diagnosis, gets the necessary treatment, and lives a long and full life.
