According to Irish tradition, those who find a four-leaf clover are destined for good luck, as each leaf in the clover symbolizes good omens for faith, hope, love, and luck for the finder.
The estimated statistical odds of finding a four-leaf clover on your first try is 10,000 to 1, and the odds skyrocket to 1,000,000 to 1 if you’re looking to find a five-leaf clover on your first try. The incidence of APS Type 1 according to current statistics is 2 million to one so you can see how the rarity of a four leaf clover fits well as a symbol for all of us that live each day in sea of three leaf clovers. We are reminded by the Irish tradition that each pedal symbolizes something important to all of us with APS Type 1 as well. We all have faith in one another, we hope for a day when APS Type 1 is a curable, we are surrounded by the love of our family and friends, and through the work we do to drive critical research we wish for a little luck along the way.
