A really positive post about Hughes Syndrome/APS written and loaded onto HSF Facebook page by Kate H

Well done to brave Rianne for battling on following her stroke due to APS, and gaining a place at Aston university to study biomedical science. It must have been terribly disappointing for her to have her Olympic swimming dreams dashed at such a young age, but we applaud her strength to carry on despite such adversity - an inspiration for us all getwestlondon.co.uk/news/lo...

(my own footnote), it is great to note this positive post to balance out the ones we often get to hear about which are not uplifting, this is a great story.
