Phil Godfrey, a member of Solihull Rotary, campaign for greater awareness to fight a disease which killed his wife six years ago. She had suffered from APS for 40 years.
Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an incurable life-threatening autoimmune condition which causes the blood to clot too quickly in veins, arteries and the brain.
It can cause potentially fatal events such as strokes, heart attacks, blood clots in the lungs and deep vein thrombosis.
In pregnancy, APS is the most important treatable cause of recurrent miscarriage and a woman is five times more likely to suffer a stillbirth.
