WANDAA is hard at work again…
WANDAA is hard at work again and we need your help. This time the crisis is right here in our own backyard. As I'm sure all of you know the New Jersey and New York shorelines have been devastated by Sandy. We have partnered with several very courageous local groups that are working very hard to help those in need. Please consider helping WANDAA again in making a difference to those who have been affected. The new fundraiser can be found here: http://www.crowdrise.com/restoretheshorenjny/fundraiser/wandaa
I hope we can rely on some of the incredible support that allowed us to make a difference and help those in need in Japan.
Thank you.

Allison - wow, I'm not sure how this slipped through the cracks, but a HUGE THANK YOU is in order! Your thoughtfulness and gift on behalf of your sister is incredible. We cannot tell you enough how meaningful it is to us, and how much of a difference it makes in the well-being of our students. Our fence project is almost at goal/complete, and we can't wait to share some of the pictures of the final security overhaul. Do you have an email address we could send them to? Feel free to message me or shoot me an email at megan@imaginescholar.org.

Thank you again Allison. Wishing you all the best!!!

Sincerely,
Megan + Imagine Scholar

CROWDRISING SINCE: Jan 12, 2011
Stuff About Me:
I’m ScientistSeeking (AKA Allison). I’m a physicist by degree, electrical engineer by trade, and aspiring neuroscientist (currently back in school becomming a nurse practitioner). I was diagnosed in November 2009 with a rare neuroendocrine disorder called Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy (HE), it is also more generally called Steroid Responsive Encephalopathy related to Autoimmune Thyroiditis (SREAT).

I am fortunate that I finally have the correct diagnosis, but unfortunately I was diagnosed with something that very few doctors have ever treated. Considering this disease can cause irreversible brain damage, I decided I was going to learn everything I possibly can about HE and really take an active role in my treatment.

My doctor and I decided we are going to collect data on more patients and probably write a case study. Of course this involves a lot of research. So that is one reason why I started a blog (henotebook.wordpress.com), to act as my scientific notebook.

After joining an email forum for HE patients called HELPS, I realized other people are just as curious and research minded as I am. That is the other reason I started this blog, to save others a little legwork in their research.

I am primarily focused on the most recent case studies. I also have been a willing guinea pig in different treatments, as the current accepted treatments for this disease give side effects almost as bad as the disease itself.

If you want to read about the personal side of my illness (or whatever else I choose to blog about every day) you can check out my personal blog at http://scientistseeking.wordpress.com
