Welcome to Carla's Vasculitis Fundraising Page!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VISITING OUR FUNDRAISING PAGE! :)
Dear Family and Friends,
On Saturday June 22rd, 2019, we will be participating in the annual “26 Reasons” to Walk and picnic for the Vasculitis Foundation Canada (VFC), in Cambridge’s beautiful Riverside Park, alongside other walkers to help increase vasculitis awareness while helping to raise much needed research funds.
Carla was diagnosed with Urticarial Vasculitis 3 years ago, and now that the shock is wearing off we are becoming educated on the disease and starting to get involved in groups like this. Vasculitis is so rare it took 4 years and several specialists before Carla's rashes were finally explained with a diagnosis.
Vasculitis is a family of about 26 separate autoimmune diseases, but related, and is neither contagious nor hereditary. Vasculitis causes inflammation of the blood vessel walls, thereby reducing the blood supply and causing tissue and organ damage.
The Vasculitis Foundation Canada (VFC) was founded by volunteers in 1998, to assist and educate patients and their families living with rare and life-threatening vasculitis diseases. Today VFC’s 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 the annual “26 Reasons” to 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 VFC today. Every dollar counts towards the VFC’s investment in patient research, 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 $250.00 Please help find a cause and cure for Vasculitis by making a donation today. 100% of every dollar you donate goes towards vasculitis awareness, education, and critical Vasculitis research.
