THE STORY:

Dear Friends,

Thank you to all my friends who have donated to my campaign to raise money for the Transverse Myelitis Association. Transverse Myelitis is a rare condition in which the immune system attacks the nervous system, often causing significant damage to the spinal cord.

You may or may not know, but the night that I initially became ill, the ER sent me home with a diagnosis of a pinched nerve, even though I was exhibiting neurological symptoms and repeatedly told them something was not right. By the time I went back the next morning, I had lost the use of the lower half of my body. I was fortunate to be in the 1/3 of TM victims who have a pretty good recovery, but many of my TM friends are paralyzed and have had NO recovery at all. This includes children as young as 6 months and up.

Had the hospital staff been more aware of the presenting symptoms of this disease, they might have ordered an MRI and treatment sooner and I might have avoided some of the irreversible damage to my spinal cord.

The TMA is working hard to advocate for those of us affected by the disease and to help educate and create awareness, especially in ERs where time is of the essence in diagnosing this disease.

Will you please consider donating just $20 to what I consider is a VERY worthy cause? You don't even have to get cold or wet to help me.

Facebook tells me I have hundreds of friends, just think if each of them donated just 20 dollars. It could make a huge difference!

Thanks for considering,
Love, Sara
