BENEFITING: Myocarditis Foundation
This fundraiser is to assist in the funding of research for little known diesease called Myocarditis. This diesease took my 16 month old daughter, Kamryn away from us in August of 2010. Since then I have learned that this diesease unexpectedly takes the lives of thousands of young children every year. It is almost undetectable until it is too late, as I learned that fateful night 5 years ago! I took her to hospital on Friday night and she was gone Saturday morning. All the doctors were baffled as to how a completely normal healthy child could deteriorate so quickly and ultimately die within the span of 14 hours. I attended a conference where I met other families who had lost loved ones to this diesease and all of our stories were so similar it was frightening. The Myocarditis Foundation funds research grants every year to find a way to detect the diesease earlier and to find better treatment options for those affected. Please help us find a test, a treatment, and a cure to this monster that is taking our children away much too soon.
