Heather,

Neither have I. There are ribbons for cancer why can't there be a ribbon for TS. This is something that women carry from the time they are born until the day they die.

I did find this:

I feel the exact same...

i think Turner Syndrome should have a ribbon because i feel it can affect a

persons life just like cancer and other illnesses and conditions ...

I am a sufferer of Turner syndrome and i feel that a ribbon would

give awareness to the condition since it is not well known

just like Xania (nice name Smile ) i wear the pink-blue ribbon for infertility

since that's the closest thing to turners there is at the moment

(sorry about the rant)

Hey Shae,

Rant away girl that is sometimes what we need. A good rant. Well awhile back I was doing some research and I found out the silver butterfly that I have for my user image is actually the symbol for Turners Syndrome. I thought it was kinda cool so I thought I would share it with everyone. Smile
