Hi everyone, my friend just informed me of a fundraiser in order to help her cousin become healthier, and/or help prevent and cure this disease in the future. Instead of just donating, I felt I should spread this around (the research team needs all they can get…). I’ll just paste the information she posted on Facebook.
This is Cayenne L.
She has A-T (ataxia-telangiectasia).
WHAT IS A-T?
Imagine a disease that combines the worst symptoms of muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, immune deficiencies, and cancer. Children with A-T are usually confined to wheelchairs by age 10 and often do not survive their teens. Because A-T is a multi-system disease, scientists believe that A-T research will help more prevalent diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, AIDS, and cancer. -
I am fundraising for my cousin, Cayenne, this Christmas to donate to her Giving Circle. For $5 I am drawing charcoal portraits for each donation. If you want to participate, on an envelope with your name marked clearly on it, put $5 or however much you wish to donate in the envelope along with the picture of the loved one you want a portrait of. With love and sincerity,
