BENEFITING: Free for Life International
This my1st Crowdrise page, is devoted to the mis-education and confusion of Human beings in relation to medical care, something that is a human right.
Goal: finding ways to dimminish stigmas that keep us from healthy living.Especially in countries where fine quailty medical care is availible to most.Increasing knowledge and access without fear of disease or stigmas.Openley dealing with challanges of Limited Access, Fear of Disease and avoidence of invasisive exams.
I'd like to start with the world but it's overwhelming.So this page is for everytime I've heard statments such as the ones below while growing up in 1 of the 5 boughs of New York.
For everytime I've heard someone say "I'm afraid of the doctor"
"They are just looking to find something wrong"
"I'm to embarrassed to ask my Doctor that or tell them this"
"I'll get that colonoscopy next year".
For everytime someones felt ill and thought oh it's nothing or maybe that lump "will just go away" True it probably is nothing so why worry about nothing.
Those are all statmentes stemming from fear,embarrasment and limited access to medical care/information that I hear people mention or have even felt myself but never publically adressed.Things that not only distract us but can keep us but from healthy living and can even lead to avoidable disease or a delayed diagnosis.
So be the first to pop my crowdrise cherry and let's get our fundraising on!!
Please don't be afraid be responsible.Someone, somewhere loves you :)
