Bill Maddox's Fundraiser:

Summit4StemCell: Climb to Mt. Everest (Base camp) to Raise Funds for Parkinson's Disease Research

BENEFITING: PARKINSON'S ASSOCIATION OF SAN DIEGO, INC.

EVENT DATE: Oct 10, 2013

THE STORY:

Climb up to Mt.Everest Base Camp to Raise Funds and Raise Hope.

”The trek is focused on self-empowerment as well as bringing essential funding and awareness to the cutting edge research that may lead to a viable long-term treatment for those afflicted with Parkinson’s Disease.


According to Sherrie Gould NP, “This treatment for PD could put the lives of those with Parkinson’s back on track. Researchers can now turn simple skin cells into stem cells that abandon the need for embryonic stem cells, thereby avoiding the ethical and political issues that have plagued stem cell research.


The ever-enthusiastic Sherrie Gould NP and her team of hikers, are inspired by a future free from the degenerative effects of the disease. The team is determined to raise $500,000 to fund this ground-breaking study to treat, and possibly conquer, Parkinson’s disease.”

As much as I would love to do the $7,000+ hike, I'm not sure that that with my limited income I can pull the funds together to pay for this trip. So I'm seeking help on-line at crowdrise.com.

Any donations that are not used directly for the trek, and travel expenses will go straight to Summit4StemCell's non-embryonic research quest.

In any event, I'm doing everything I can to spread the word about the hike and encourage others to sign up for the trek and or donate to Summit4StemCell.
