Have you ever bought yourself a stuffed animal? I'm about to turn 37 and I just did. The Zebra is the mascot for Eihlers-Danlos Syndrome because we are the hidden disease that doctors are told not to assume we have. Most people are horses...but we are a horse of a different color.
I bought my zebra because I need a little companion for when the pain is bad and especially when I go through some of the painful procedures to help gain strength.
But she needs a good name!! Suggestions?!

    I know what you're going through. The worst thing is knowing I passed it on to all 3 of my daughters Let's name her Hope. Maybe there is hope for my kids or grandchildren

    thank you everyone!! I loved the names that mean something and especially ones that means life. Then I had an epiphany. Eva! That means life as well. So she is Eva the Zebra!

    We have the zebra in common. My cancers' ribbon is zebra striped for the same reason (carcinoid cancer). I have had a new affinity for little zebra things since I was diagnosed last year. Here's to Eva!
