BENEFITING: National Foundation for Celiac Awareness
EVENT DATE: Jul 21, 2015
The purpose of this fundraiser is to generate money for the nfca (National Foundation for Celiacs Disease Awareness). After being Diagnosed with celiac's disease about sixe months ago I have realized how difficult it can be to eat out at restaurants or to find gluten free foods at supermarkets. With the prevalence of this disease increasing I felt that it I should do my part to contribute to furthering the general understanding and awareness of this disease along with the research that is seeking to unlock the mechanisms behind it. I hope that you will consider donating to this fundraiser to help me and the millions of other like me who have this disease. As of today, It is estimated that 83% of Americans who have celiac disease are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with other conditions. By donating to this cause we can help to decrease that figure and help others get on the path to better health !
