BENEFITING: Childrens Alopecia Project
EVENT DATE: Jul 09, 2012
As many of you may already know, in the past few months I have been diagnosed with Alopecia, an auto-immune disease which results in hair loss. In instances such as mine, Alopecia Universalis can result in the loss of all bodily hair.
Since my diagnosis, I have been determined to get involved in the Alopecia community and help others affected by this disease in any way that I can. To my initial surprise, the more I spoke to people about Alopecia, the more I found that people know someone affected by this disease.
While my long term goal is to start my own foundation, right now I am raising funds and awareness for the Children's Alopecia Project (http://www.childrensalopeciaproject.org/), who is devoted to helping children affected by this disease, many of them hairless as young as age 5.
On July 9th at 7 PM, my softball team is accepting pledges for every run we score (see attached), in addition to general donations. You can email me back your pledge sheet or donate online at http://www.crowdrise.com/bdobatsforalopecia. Even if donating is not possible at this time, I would encourage you to come to the game, located in Central Park (North Meadow West 96th Street).
