HELP ME TO RAISE FUNDS FOR RESEARCH IN SUPPORT OF MY WIFE'S BEHCET'S DISEASE!
Dear Co-workers, Family and Friends,
Join me and my family on Saturday June 22nd, 2019, as I will be participating in the annual Behcet's Canada “26 Reasons” to Walk and picnic along with the Vasculitis Foundation Canada (VFC), in Cambridge’s beautiful Riverside Park, alongside other walkers to help increase Behcet's Disease awareness while helping to raise much needed research funds.
Vasculitis is a family of about 26 separate rare autoimmune diseases, all related, within the larger family of arthritic diseases, and Behcet's Disease is but one of them. Behcet's Disease causes inflammation of the blood vessel walls, thereby reducing the blood supply and causing tissue and organ damage, which can lead to death. My wife has been suffering with this terrible, painful disease for over 20 years nows. It has put her in and out of the hospital causing her to have massive blood clots, meningitis, strokes and organ damage There is no cause, treatment or cure to date for Behcet's Disease.
Behcet's Canada was co-founded by my wife in 1997 and then teamed up with The Vasculitis Foundation Canada (VFC) in 2010. They are all run by volunteers, to assist and educate patients and their families living with rare and life-threatening vasculitis diseases. Today their volunteers still focus on patients, assisting them to care for and take control of their disease, but also to encourage and support research efforts to identify the cause and cure of all types of vasculitis.
This is why her annual walk event is so important to me, and why I’m asking for your HELP in order to make it STOP by making a donation to the Behcet's Canada today. Every dollar counts towards our investment in patient research like the Behcet's DNA Research Study happening at Mount Sinai Hospital Toronto, along with awareness, and education, so that every adult and child with the disease can live to fullest, and ultimately one day be cured.
My personal goal is to raise $500.00 CAD, Help find a cause and cure for My Wife's Behcet's Disease by making a donation today. 100% of every dollar you donate goes towards Behcet's awareness, education, and critical DNA research.
