Carnival Cruise Lines awards $50,000 donation to The Ehlers-Danlos Society aboard the launch of the new Carnival Sunrise.

The Ehlers-Danlos Society is honored to have been in attendance at the launch of the Carnival Cruise Line’s newly renovated Carnival Sunrise. The ship’s new godmother, Kelly Arison, daughter of Carnival Corporation Chairman Micky Arison and his wife Madeleine, chose to raise awareness for The Ehlers-Danlos Society at this event.

Kelly Arison is a strong advocate of the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes and hypermobility spectrum disorders, awarding The Ehlers-Danlos Society with a check for $50,000 in a presentation ceremony.

“We are blown away by the generosity of Carnival Cruise Line for choosing The Ehlers-Danlos Society for this incredible honor and for an amazing donation of $50,000 to help us in our global mission,” stated Lara Bloom, Executive Director of The Ehlers-Danlos Society. “Spotlighting the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) and hypermobility spectrum disorders (HSD) at the Carnival Sunrise’s naming ceremony helps us sail farther on our journey towards worldwide awareness, and better quality of life for all who live with these conditions. We can’t thank Kelly and the Arison family enough for their support.”
