BENEFITING: Acoustic Neuroma Association
EVENT DATE: Sep 27, 2015
My younger sister Sandra has been living for many years with the effects of an Acoustic Neuroma. Persons suffering from this have symptoms such as balance problems, hearing loss, severe headaches and many other side effects. My sister has faced this challenge with courage and strength but, it is so hard to watch her suffer. She has been in treatment with limited postive results but, we pray for future positive results to restore her health. Not much is known about the cause of AN's or the best most effective treatments. I hope helping to fund research through ANA will help towards finding a cause and discovering effective treatments for those suffering with AN's. I'll be thinking of my sister with every swim stroke, every pedal stroke, and every step of my run race day and praying that someday she will be healthy enough once again to be able to do some of these things with me and with her adorable youngest son you see in the photo. As she would be the first to tell you he is her reason to stay strong and get well. Thank you for your support.
