Why the zebra

Zebras are the mascot for rare disease and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS). Why? Because often when doctors are in medical school, they are taught a saying which says “when you hear hoof-boots - think horses not zebras, because horses are common and zebras are rare, ie: think of the common things, not the rare ones. But because of this, often along the way, doctors can forget that zebras still exist! Just because it is often a horse, doesn’t mean that it can't be a zebra, and that zebras don't still exist! This is why the zebra is the mascot to help raise awareness. Further to that — every zebra is unique with its own stripes, and even though its stripes are different to the next person's, doesn’t mean that it’s not still a zebra. Ie: Just because my symptoms are different to the person next to someone else's, doesn’t mean it’s not a zebra. It can look different from one person to the next, as it depends on what is most affected for each person…. but it’s still a zebra. Zebras do exist!
