THE STORY:

Hi Friends and Family!

As most of you know I'll be turning 27 on November 10th. My husband has been asking me what i want for my birthday and at last this site was born. I am asking for all of you to check your couch cushions, raid for change in your car, or skip a trip to Starbucks/ Dunkin' Donuts for one day to donate to the National Graves Disease foundation. I am attempting to raise 2,700 for my 27th birthday.

In 2006 on my 22nd birthday instead of celebrating i was laying in the hospital bed receiving the news that i have the autoimmune disorder, Graves Disease. After receiving care for the past few years with medication, I am finally receiving the radioactive iodine procedure in a few days to help eliminate my hyperthyroid disorder caused by my Graves. In hopes to move on with my life and leave the shakes, anxiety, weight loss, weight gain, rapid heart beat, fatigue, insomnia, and the other pesky symptoms behind for good.

What exactly is Graves Disease you ask?

Here's what the Mayo Clinic has to say: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/graves-disease/DS00181

So please friends and family do what you can to help others receive the care they need to fight this disorder. And start thinking...What do you want for your birthday?
