BENEFITING: UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS FOUNDATION INC
After H1N1 Swine Flu almost took my life earlier this year, my family, friends and I are committed to raising awareness about how critical it is to get the flu shot – especially under-vaccinated adults in their 20s, 30s and 40s. (Sadly, I hadn’t had the shot. If I had, my symptoms would've been much less severe.) Our hope is that my story motivates you to take the flu seriously and get your shot – no matter what your age (I'm only 37)!
In addition to pleading with you to get your #fluvax, please join us in giving to University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) and its world-class doctors and nurses who saved my life. Our goal is to raise $10,000 toward UAMS’ #fluvax work*.
Let’s take it in the arm and fight against the flu and for UAMS! Immunizations work. They are safe. They are effective. Please share this message with everyone you know to join us in our Biceps & Bandages 2014 campaign!
