Hey, Everyone! It’s that time of year again. We’re gearing up for The Lymphatic Education & Research Network’s 2019 NY Fun Run & Walk to Fight Lymphedema (LE) & Lymphatic Diseaes (LD). As many of you know, I work with LE&RN a lot throughout the year to help fight this cause near and dear to my heart. I was born with Primary Lymphedema in my hands, arms, legs, and feet. In 2017 I developed the disease in my stomach. My father was born with Primary Lymphedema in his legs and feet. It’s painful, it’s “ugly” and it’s mentally and physically challenging every single day. The worst part is, most people don’t understand it. You can help change that! You can help us with our fight! Every little bit helps, and no donation is too small. I know everybody says that, but it’s true! Following Lobby Day in Washington, D.C. this year, I was honored at the New York state capital in Albany for my efforts to raise funding and awareness for Lymphatic Disease. And after a successful second run of my show “WHAT ABOUT US? - Living With Lymphedema” in New York City back in March, I would like to keep the momentum going. We are making noise, and I don’t take this lightly. I sincerely appreciate your support for this fundraiser, and my goal. You can donate by hitting “Give Now” on the upper right.
You can give with any major credit card and it only takes 30 seconds. I appreciate it more than you know.
One of my biggest goals is to get a great big team of people to walk with me this year. Stand loud and proud with me! Join us on October 19th in Riverside Park, and please be sure to REGISTER so we know you'll be there. LE&RN needs everyone who plans to attend to register first. The more, the merrier!
Thank you again for all you do!
