BENEFITING: VHL ALLIANCE
Those who have read even a little of my story have (hopefully) realized that this is a pretty crummy disease to live with. And the scary bit is that compared to the thousands of others out there, I've got it fairly easy. I've got a handful of laser eye surgeries and one brain surgery under my belt. A lot of these other folks are at multiple brain surgeries, spine surgeries, kidney surgeries (and multiple problems that stem from that), and some are even missing eyes. Never mind the fact that they live with the fear of what will happen to their children. (Sometimes genetics suck.) AND not only does research for VHL help those of us who have it, but the research can lead to progress towards curing other cancers. So donate and feel good. Because every cent makes a difference. End cheesy rant.
