Kimme Norton's Fundraising Page

Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page. Donating through this site is simple, fast, and secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to my fundraising efforts. I really appreciate your support!

We will be participating in the inaugural "WALK, TALK, & ROCK" TO CURE SCLERODERMA. It's a 4K Walk-A-Thon through downtown Plymouth along the waterfront. It starts at Nelson Beach, goes by Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower replica, and then back to Nelson Beach. This is a rain or shine event on Sunday, June 28th. The walk begins at 12PM. Please feel free to join my crew or stop by to see us cross the finish line...the more the merrier! For more information please visit: www.scleroderma.org/chapter/newengland/2009PlymouthWalk.htm. 

For those of you who are not familiar with Scleroderma, here's a little bit of information about it:

Scleroderma is a chronic, multi-systemic, autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks its own tissues.

Scleroderma primarily strikes women in their childbearing years. While it occurs almost four times more often in women than in men, scleroderma also attacks children. The disease is not contagious, hereditary or cancerous, but its symptoms can vary from mild to life-threatening and from individual to individual.

The word scleroderma is derived from the Greek (sclero/hard, derma/skin). The disease can cause thickening or tightening of the skin, as well as serious damage to internal organs.

The Scleroderma Foundation New England (SFNE) helps individuals and their families cope with the disease. A major part of the Chapter's mission is to raise funds for scleroderma research, seeking the cause of and cure for this puzzling disease.

In my case, the scleroderma is affecting my lungs, causing tissue thickening and restriction of movement. Right now the treatment of choice is chemotherapy. I am currently being evaluated at three month intervals to determine the necessity of this highly toxic treatment based on the progression of my disease.

Please keep me in your prayers...

Love, Kimme
