SUPPORT ME ON MY WALK TO RAISE FUNDS FOR BEHCET'S RESEARCH!
(Even a $5 donation can make a difference!)
Dear Behcet's Warriors, Family and Friends,
Please Join Me on Saturday June 22rd, 2019, as I will be helping to host and participate in the 9th Annual Behcet's Disease “26 Reasons” to Walk and 21st Annual picnic for the Vasculitis Foundation Canada (VFC), in Cambridge’s River Side Park, alongside other walkers to help increase Behcet's and vasculitis awareness while helping to raise much needed research funds.
Behcet's Warriors, You can Support Behcet's Canada in a variety of ways; Join us on the day of the walk and meet other warriors who share your experiences with this disease, Form your own team and join us with your family and friends. Can't make it to the event? Form a team where ever you are and do a small walk in your neighbourhood park. Can't walk? Then let us be your virtual volunteer walker and walk here for you. In another Country? We can set up a virtual walk, on line for you to collect donations. If all these methods fail, you can always just make a simple donation to the team or any of our participants.
Family and Friends, Please Support Me by making a simple, secure Donation Online. Even a Minimum of $5 from each person can make a Hugh difference. It will allow us to be able to send out one DNA kit to help further our research study, helping me and others get closer to our dream of finding a cause, treatment and Cure!
All donations to Behcet's Canada will go to fund our ongoing Behcet's DNA Research Study & Mail-In Kits, Our Medical Symposium Projects and to Support Other Patients. Plus we will be collecting blood samples for our critical DNA study, if you have not participated yet it will be an excellent opportunity for you to do so.
Behcet's Disease is in a family of about 26 separate rare vasculitis/autoimmune diseases, all are related, within the larger family of arthritic diseases. Behcet's Disease is a vasculitis/autoimmune disease that cause inflammation of the blood vessel walls, thereby reducing the blood supply. This sounds simple enough, but it causes tissue and organ damage, which can lead to a variety of symptoms, such as blood clots, strokes, meningitis, blindness, excruciating pain and even death. Behcet's not contagious, is more common than you think, and can be considered an invisible illness because we look good on the outside while our bodies are slowly killing us on the inside.
Behcet's Canada and The Vasculitis Foundation Canada (VFC) are run solely by volunteers. Our purpose is to assist and educate patients living with this rare and life-threatening disease. Our volunteers focus on patients and their families, assisting them to care for and take control of this disease, but also to encourage and support research efforts to help identify the cause and find the cure for their disease.
My personal goal is to raise $1000.00 CAD and our team goal is to raise $2500.00 CAD. Or more
This is why our 9th Annual Behcet's Disease “26 Reasons” to walk event is so important to me, and why I am asking for your Help to Eradicate it, by making a donation today! Every dollar counts towards our investment in patient research, awareness, and education, so that every adult and child with the disease can live to the fullest, and ultimately one day be cured!
