THE STORY:

Hey there! This is a project to raise funds for research of an extremely life changing, debilitating and painful disease. Mixed Connective Tissue Disease(MCTD). Mixed Connective Tissue Disease is a very uncommon autoimmune disease, where your body's defense system attacks itself. There's no cure for mixed connective tissue disease. Mixed connective tissue disease occurs mostly in women. Usually diagnosis is made in the 20s and 30s. There is little known about this disease. With treatment mixed connective tissue disease worsens in about 13% of the people, causing potentially fatal complications within 6 to 12 years. Usually about 80% of people survive at least 10 years after the diagnosis is made.

Last year 2010, on my 32nd birthday I was diagnosed with this horrible disease. I am a proud mother of 2 gorgeous, intelligent and loving boys. I refuse to give up. I have a lot more to do and a lot more feathers to ruffle. :) I pray for the day when no one will have to worry what tomorrow might bring but excited for the future.
