Join the Roby Revolution
Organized by: Ethan Roeder
To know Taneisha is to love her. A fast friend, a fighter, and a giver. It's time for us to give back to Taneisha.
Taneisha was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in late 2012. Taneisha has been experiencing a wide range of symptoms from impaired motor function, especially in her legs, to chronic fatigue and weakness. Because of her symptoms she is unable to drive or walk long distances.
One of the most difficult symptoms for Taneisha is Nystagmus which makes her eyes jitter and makes it extremely difficult to read unless the print is very large and she takes her time. Since she's a digital campaigner by trade this effectively means she can't work in her professional area.
Taneisha is fighting this every step of the way. She's closely managing her diet and goes to the gym every weekday. She's set a goal for herself of hitting 33,333 reps in a series of excersizes by the end of the year. (As of this writing she's at 24,213 and is on track to hit her goal- way to track that data Roby!) There are episodes of Futurama I've watched that many times, but that's about the best I can claim. Taneisha is hard core.
She's fighting the symptoms and keeping her faith with amazing resolve, but she needs some love and a little green from her friends to keep hope alive. Our fundraising goal is $5,592. That's her monthly health care premium ($466) times twelve months.
Let's go all-in for Roby!
