Thank you for visiting my Autoimmune Walk personal fundraising page!

I am excited to be supporting AARDA through the Autoimmune Walk.  More than 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune diseases. That's 1 out of every 5 people in the United States!  The Autoimmune Walk is one of AARDA's efforts to bring together families impacted by autoimmune disease to raise much-needed funding and awareness -- because together we can accomplish far more than any of us can on our own.

Here's my story...

For 3 years now, I've been dealing with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis; where your immune system basically attacks your thyroid. It's been a struggle having to make huge changes in all aspects of my life and just when I think I've got it figured out a new issue pops up and throws me off again. I just have to adjust the sails and keep moving forward. The positive thing about this is once I have made the changes I've noticed I feel better. I've become my own researcher about the disease and thankfully I have found a huge community online that I have been able to get guidance and assistance from - so many of these people have helped me on rough days and they don't even know it. 

So my way of giving back is by being a part of this Walk and helping to bring awareness and hopefully some funds for more and more research. Thank you for any thing you can contribute and please share with others so we can spread awareness! 

Please register to walk with me OR make a donation to help me reach my goal!
