THE STORY:

Today is my birthday and many of you have asked what I want. There are so many things I have and am grateful for but the one thing I would like is to lead a healthier life. I have a chronic pain condition called Fibromyalgia. Everyone talks about the F word, well Fibromyalgia is mine. I also have Chronic Fatigue, Sciatica, IBD, Scoliosis, Neuropathy, Cognitive impairment, Arthritis, Anemia, Re occurring Shingles, Tachycardia, Hand tremors, muscle weakness and whatever else is in the room I have because my immune system is compromised. I can’t physically accomplish much in a day and I would like to change that.

I have two children. My daughter is 4 and my son is 1. It is really hard to keep up with them and doing the simplest things are near impossible for me to do. I would like to be able to take them to a theme park and get through the day without ending up in the emergency room. They deserve that. I think that if I get stronger I will be able to do so much more with them, but it will be a challenge to work up to it.

So, my birthday wish is to walk 21 miles from now until 3/21. Twenty one is my favorite number, and I can’t walk 35 miles so my year won’t work. I know that I won’t do this without help and support from my friends and family…..Oh, and those who know me know that I have a great cause to support as well . :)

I am asking all of my friends and family to join this Healthy Birthday wish and walk as well because your health is important to me. If I can do it, you can do it! And if you want to walk together, call me because I would love that!


Please pledge to walk 21 miles by 3/21 or donate 21 dollars to the Skinny Gene Project. Donations will be used to provide financial assistance, which covers nutrition education and counseling for low income adults on our waiting list, who are at risk for developing diabetes in the near future but lack the financial resources needed to prevent diabetes from affecting their family.
