The ribbon color for Syringomyelia Awareness is royal blue.
The American Syringomyelia and Chiari Alliance Project, Inc. is currently seeking to get each U.S. state's government office to declare May the official month for Syringomyelia Awareness.
Syringomyelia was once thought be extremely rare with early estimates of only 20,000 people in the U.S. having it. Increased use of MRI has since shown that syringomyelia is more common and, while there has not been a rigorous study to determine how many people have it, a Duke University analysis estimates that between 100,000 - 200,000 people in the US may have syringomyelia.
