Stand Up for Meryl

Organized by: Mike Connelly

THE STORY:

It was a typical day for Meryl (a healthy non-smoker). But, as she stepped outside on the beautiful fall day to spend time with her family, she noticed her vision was acting strange. She was experiencing a blurriness that she had never noticed before. She attributed it to allergies and continued on with her day.

A few days later, she was still experiencing the blurriness in her vision. It just so happened that her daughter had a doctor's appointment, so she mentioned it to the doctor during the visit. Before she knew it, she was sent to an Ophthalmologist, then a Retina Specialist, then a Neurologist, an Oncologist, and other specialists.

It was on her 39th birthday, October 7, after 2 weeks of doctor's appointments, MRIs, CT scans, and blood work, that she received the news that rocked her world. She had Stage IV Lung Cancer (non-small cell adenocarcinoma), and it had metastasized to her lymph nodes, brain and eyes.

On November 29th, Rebell will host a fundraising event unlike any other in the world.  It will be one of the most demanding physical and mental tests the participants will have ever experienced.  It will require each person to do as many GetUps as they can in 60 minutes with a predetermined weight.  Contributions can be made as flat donations or as pledges to a participant per Get Up.  To pledge a participant, please email me at mike@rebellconditioning.com with the participants name, your phone number, and the amount of money per get up that you would like to pledge.  

Thank you for you support, generosity, and kindness!
