THE STORY:

Ira Feuerstein wrote -

 

We will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro (the highest freestanding mountain in the world) to help build awareness and secure donations to help find a cure to this debilitating disease. The goal is to have a minimum of 10 teenage patients summit this incredible mountain. All donations will be given to CURED and 100% of the profits will go directly to provide research into this dreadful disease.  

My three children live with a disease called EE.  Eosinophilic enteropathy is a complicated digestive system disorder in which eosinophils, a type of white blood cell, are found in above-normal amounts in one or more specific places in the digestive system and/or the blood.

When the body wants to attack a substance, such as an allergy-triggering food or airborne allergen, eosinophils respond by moving into the area and releasing a variety of toxins. However, when the body produces too many eosinophils, they can cause chronic inflammation, resulting in tissue damage.

Many children can only eat a handful of foods, as others cause the body to mistakenly send white blood cells to attack their GI tract.

You can see a video about the disease here.

Left untreated, it can lead to life threatening rupture of the esophagus.

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 sponsors as well as individual sponsors.

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

Personal donors, read on!
