Know the Signs, Fight for Victory

In light of the current public health crisis due to COVID-19, The Marfan Foundation is providing regular updates for the Marfan, VEDS, Loeys-Dietz, and related condition community. Our Professional Advisory Board has collaborated with us to bring you the best medical information on COVID-19 in relation to our community. We are complementing this with guidance to help you cope with the added stress and anxiety that this situation is causing.

As always, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is a great resource for general information on COVID-19. We recommend reviewing the CDC’s steps to prevent illness and their statement for people at risk for serious illness from COVID-19, which includes those with chronic disease.

If you have additional medical questions, please submit them to our Help & Resource Center.
