Masks' Fundraising - Gutsy Walk 2014 - Vancouver
This Sunday, I will be walking with friends and family to raise money for Crohn’s/Colitis research on Team Crohn-O Trigger.
Those of you who have been following me for awhile know that I’ve been dealing with a really stubborn Crohn’s flare-up for almost 2 years now. I’m currently getting close to remission (finally!) and entering the recovery phase, thanks to chemotherapy drugs, steroids and other fun stuff like that. This has been a difficult 2 years for me and everyone around me, and I’m fully conscious that my Crohn’s is only ~moderate~ — there are so many people who deal with so much worse. In fact, in the last couple months, 4 people in my support group have died from it. :(
So, this Sunday, I am walking partly to celebrate my own survival, and partly to raise money to help those warriors who are fighting more difficult battles than me.
I know that not everyone can contribute $$$, but if you have any to spare and you’d like to put it toward a cause that will impact someone you know, I would be humbled if you chose to donate to my cause.
Even if not, you can like or reblog or comment on this post — I’ll print out the notes and carry it with me in my pocket during the walk, so it’s like you’re supporting me in spirit even if you can’t be there in person.
Tumblr and fandom have helped me more than you may know. You are such an important part of my fight. Thank you. *hugs*
