Team Joyce Challenge
Thank you for visiting my home page. I was inspired to start this page because I was nominated for the ALS ice bucket challenge. I decided that while ALS is a great reason for donating, pulmonary fibrosis is a disease very close to my heart and deserves some attention. There is no cure and no treatment, they need awareness. Please help me reach my goal by asking 10 people to donate $10 dollars, I ask you to share how much pulmonary fibrosis BLOWS!
This picture is my Mom and Dad. My Mom is living with pulmonary fibrosis and has been for five years. This is a debilitating and ugly disease that has effected her in many awful ways, the worst way is that is has taken her quality of life away. This picture was taken just before we found out what was wrong with her, in this picture is exactly how she would want everyone to think of her, alive, healthy, beautiful and UNTETHERED to an oxygen machine. Today, she is tied to a cord around the clock, she has legs that can go and feet that can carry her but she cannot do one simple thing and that is what we all take for granted.... Breathe!
Please donate $10 today to help me kick off September 2014 as Global Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Month or otherwise known as BREATHTEMBER! Show the world how pulmonary fibrosis BLOWS!
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
