BENEFITING: SPONDYLITIS ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA
My name is Heather McCollim and I am trying to raise awareness about Ankylosing Spondylitis by sharing facts, posting information, and encouraging others to stay positive during their trials with pain and flares, or are ready to give up. As a nurse and a patient, my mother, uncle, cousin, and grandmother are all aIso positive for HLA-B27 gene. I believe learning as much as possible about this disease is very important and spreadig the word with positivity is most important. I am also hoping hospitals, dr's, and other healthcare staff could be educated on AS and how to treat patients like us. So my wish is to attempt to raise $3000.00 for Spondylitis Association of America to help with further research and possible new treatments.
Thanks a million! Sincerely,
