THE STORY:

My best friend Courtney is currently fighting ICP (intrahepatic cholestatis). This is a rare disease that happens in pregnancy in which the liver is unable to excrete bile. Long story short, it causes intense and life altering itching. There are medications that you can take for the itching, but they are not a cure or often fully effective. There are health risks for mother and baby. To attempt to relieve her intense itching, Courtney has had to soak her feet, hands, and some nights, even her entire body in an ice bath. She's miserable and concerned for her baby boy. She also loves to support causes like Camp Sunshine and has a personal desire to fight cancer in general. I thought it would be a great idea to honor Courtney by participating in my own little ice bath for a cause I know she would appreciate and be passionate about. I am asking her friends to join me on a team.
