BENEFITING: Dysautonomia International
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
One day you wake up feeling dizzy and your heart is out of control, you have no idea why this is happening. You go to dance practice and end up on the floor after barely starting practice. It starts happening more and more and nobody knows what is going on. You go to multiple cardiologists, neurologists and psychologist trying to get answers, they have nothing. Then, they start going into seizing episodes, making everything even more difficult. You miss half of the school year, don't go to any events and start missing out on everything "fun" that you would like to do. Finally, you find a doctor who will do the test you've been asking for: the Tilt Table Test. You finally have an answer, Dysautonomia, but still nobody knows what to do. This is what I have dealt with since Sophomore year of high school. I want to raise money for Dysautonomia International for research so that people do not have to wait as long as me and so people who have Dysautonomia will have answers for what will help them. For people like me, one minute you are standing, living a normal life, and the next moment you have paramedics surrounding you. We are warriors & we want answers. Join me in our first Dysautonomia Dash to raise money for Dysautonomia.
