Friends to remember Tom Sparks

Bill Sparks said in a statement that doctors have determined that Tom's stroke was probably caused by a condition called antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS), a disease that causes unnatural clotting of the blood. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations in Tom's memory be sent to the APS Foundation of America, the only nonprofit organization in the country dedicated to bringing awareness to APS.

Rare disorder's diagnosis draws media attention

Published: Sunday, November 20, 2005 12:03 AM CST. A Ventura teen's struggle to obtain a diagnosis for a relatively rare auto-immune disorder will be featured on the Discovery Health Channel. Angie Abbas, 18, who has Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome (APS), will be featured in a segment of "Mystery Diagnosis" in early 2006. The date has not been determined. Angie's diagnosis was difficult because APS mimics other disorders, LaRue said. In addition, Angie's primary symptom, a severe twitching of the head and neck, is not typical. In the meantime, producers of "Mystery Diagnosis" had learned about Angie through the APS Foundation of America, a relatively new organization in which Angie and her mother had become active.
