BENEFITING: NAMI ILLINOIS INC
Several years ago my family was surprised to discover that my sister was found to suffer from the disorder known as "paranoid schizophrenia". At first we didn't know what to make of her strange and unusual behavior. It was quite the process to arrive at the place we find ourselves today as a family. We thank God for His grace, mercy, guidance, and favor throughout all of the challenges we endured. There were several things that we have all learned and still learn from this experience. There were moments that literally drove us to the brink of our emotional and spiritual limits along the way.
However, living through these challenges and having a better understanding of how the disease effects the individual with the illness has been truly enlightening. It was the vital support of groups such as the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) that helped make that understanding possible. We realize now more than ever how little science understands about the human mind and the importance of supporting the study thereof. We believe that through continued research science will be able to develop better medicine and eventually the cures needed for several mental disorders, such as paranoid schizophrenia.
I personally ask that that you join me and the millions of other people effected by this disorder throughout the world in fighting for a cure. All donations are welcome!
Thank you in advance for your support and expression of time towards this cause!
