THE STORY:

For the past two years, my family and I have participated in the "Walk Out RSD" fundraiser in Delaware Park in Buffalo, New York.

On April 30th, 2007, everything changed. I left work excited to head home and grill something tasty that night for dinner...but I never made it. A 17 year old kid, made the decision to blow through a stop sign, causing me to hit him head on. Most of that afternoon (and following days) is a blur...there was lots of pain, a helicopter ride, and doctors telling me I will never be the same.

Every second from then on, has been difficult. I had to fight like hell to get a diagnosis -- and when one finally came, it was too late to do anything about it. I've been through YEARS of physical therapy -- and will have to go, off and on, for the rest of my life. I've had more spine blocks than I can count. I've fractured my "bad" foot more than a dozen times. I have a battery, in my hip, that makes it possible for me to walk...without it, the pain is beyond excruciating.

But...I haven't given up.

Every year, I raise money for this walk because there aren't enough people who know and understand what RSD is. I raise money because when I'm sick, I shouldn't be the one with the most knowledge of RSD in the hospital/emergency room/doctors office. I raise money because I hope that someday, there will be a cure and no one will have to go through what I've been through.

Any amount you feel you can donate -- no matter how small -- matters. Every cent makes a difference.
