Update: all donations will be matched up to $5000! I'm sure by now most of you know my story but if not here you go...I was diagnosed with anti-NMDA receptor autoimmine encephalitis in January of 2013. After making an almost complete recovery (after six months in the hospital and learning to walk and talk again) i was sick again in 2015 with another autoimmune brain disorder. These days I'm doing well, thanks to all the research and awareness that has come about in the last few years, much of it thanks to the AE alliance which tirelessly looks for cures and causes, educates doctors about this disease, and provides support for families. Every March I head to North Carolina for Florence Forth to race (who am I kidding? I walk) to raise funds for this wonderful charity. Please help me help others and donate today! It means the world to me to be able to help and support others who are going through the same ordeal but I can only do it with your help.
