Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
As most of you know, I was diagnosed with Idoipathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (IPAH) in July 2008. This illness has been life changing for me, but instead of losing hope, I decided to use this illness for good. My goal is to educate those who don't know about this rare disease and raise awareness in hopes of finding a cure. I ask that you donate any amount that you can. If for some reason you are not able to donate at this time, please consider it at a later date. As an alternative, I would like for you to visit the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) website. If you cannot give right now, the best way for you to help me is to please take the time to visit the website and educate yourself about the disease. Talk to your friends and family about it. Make yourselves aware. Awareness is the first step to a cure!
Thanks to everyone who has helped me in the last few months! Whether you gave words of encouragement, a monetary gift, ran errands, cooked/cleaned, listened when I needed to talk, or simply gave the gift of love, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have been my life line!
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
