BENEFITING: CURED NFP

EVENT DATE: Jul 11, 2014

THE STORY:

We will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world, to help build awareness and secure donations to help fund a cure for Eosinophilic Enteropathy (EE), a condition that afflicts all three of my children. It is a rare and incurable condition that receives little to no attention from big pharmaceutical companies or government research. So, the only way to raise funds is through the kindness and generosity of people like you.

Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell whose sole purpose is to fight off harmful foreign substances. In the case of kids with EE, their bodies perceive most food as a harmful foreign substance. These white blood cells appear in above-normal amounts in one or more specific places in the digestive system and/or blood. It causes these kids to become incredibly sick when they eat. It can cause chronic inflammation, result in tissue damage and even lead to a life threatening rupture of their esophagus. Many of these kids cannot eat a single bite of food and live off of medical food, a foul tasting nutritionally complete formula. It is so unpalatable that many of these kids need a feeding tube in their stomach to consume it.

Our goal is to have a minimum of 10 teenage patients with EE summit this incredible mountain. All donations will be given to CURED and 100% of the profits will go directly to provide research for this dreadful disease.

You can see a video about the disease here.

This is your chance to make a difference in the lives of many children around the world. And help a few select ones reach the top of the highest free standing mountain in the world. We are looking for corporate and individual sponsors.

Corporate sponsorship opportunities can be found at::  http://www.climbforee.org
