Below is the fundraiser I'm currently involved with in raising funds for research for the condition I have called Osteogenesis Imperfect (OI). Since I have been born there have been new developments in medicine to help a person with OI live a better and healtier life. However there is still much work to be done.
Again, here is a little bit about the OI foundation and what were doing:
Help me to help others!
I plan to participate in the OI Foundation's National Unbreakable SpiritŪ Walk-n-Wheel: Baltimore, 2018 scheduled for July 12, 2018 and I need your support!
50,000 people in the United States are affected by osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), a rare genetic disease that makes bones fragile and easily broken. A person living with OI may experience hundreds of painful fractures over a lifetime. Infants with OI are often born with multiple broken bones. In severe cases of OI, a cough can break an adult’s rib. Each person with OI is unique, with different fracture rates, a varied range of related health issues and his or her own path through life. Yet there is one thing every person living with OI has in common… an Unbreakable Spirit®!
Please help us to provide answers to families, fund research, and maintain a network of support groups for families dealing with the daily realities of OI by making a gift and even joining us for this fun event.
You can improve lives! To support the important work of the OI Foundation, simply click on the Donate Now button at the top of this page.
If you prefer to mail in your donation: Make all checks payable to the OI Foundation. Then, please mail your check directly to me as the event participant so that I can turn it in at the walk on July 12, 2018.
Please give as much as you can! Will you also spread the word and help us generate a turnout for this walk-n-wheel event that will make a difference?
I truly appreciate your time, consideration and generosity!
Thanks you all so very much.
Have a wonderful day.
