THE STORY:

Sarah Mendelowitz wrote -

Hi Everyone, 

Thank you all so much for being so supportive of this event!  It has been a pleasure to see how much it has grown.  I could not have done this without the help and support of family and friends.  I am incredibly lucky to have so many people in my life that care about me.  

 

I developed POTS in 2011 virtually overnight.  I went from playing soccer every weekend to bedridden within just a few days.  It has been an uphill battle of recovery since then.  Although I've made incredible strides, I still struggle every day with the effects of this illness.  Everytime I shower, drive, or take a walk I'm reminded of this disablity.  

 

Fundraising has become an important part of my recovery process.  Beacuse I know I can't get rid of POTS now but I can do some small part to make sure POTS patients have better treatments in the future.  There is so little that doctors currently understand about this illness that research is incredibly important.  And you can't do research without good funding!  

So thank you all for supporting me and supporting this cause!
