THE STORY:

Alix Diaconis wrote -

A brother Ari (POTS warrior) and sister Alix bicycling from Florida to California for POTS, an often debilitating neurological disorder resulting in, among other things, reduced blood flow to the brain, rapid heart rate and chronic fatigue. POTS will eventually become a household name, and this bicycle tour will accelerate that process. Please watch our video to learn all about this exciting project, and please visit www.ThePedalForPOTS.com to learn even more!

Approximately 25% of POTS patients are disabled and unable to work. Symptoms can include fainting, near-fainting, migraines, extreme fatigue, nausea, rapid heart rate, shortness of breath, cognitive impairment, visual impairment, digestion issues, reduced blood flow to the brain and dramatic variations in blood pressure.
