This year will mark ten (10) years since I was diagnosed with Acute Transverse Myelitis and I continue to experience daily pain, fatigue, bowel and bladder issues, paralysis and general muscle weakness. With no cure still in the forseeable future, I can only work hard to maintain my so called recovery with exercise and medication. Many TMers call this a "crappyversary" in stead of an "anniversary". Rather than stew about my ten (10) year crapiversay, I am once again devoting my time to planning our second annual Walk Run N Roll here in Maryland. We learned many lessons, both good and bad, from our event last year and while it was a huge success, we hope to make it even bigger and better this year.
Please consider donating to the TMA so that we can help make life easier for all TMers and their families everywhere. The Transverse Myelitis Association provides so many benefits to its member friends and family including research, fellowship opportunities, online health forums, regular podcasts, fund raising events, corporate partnerships, support and advocacy and family camp. With your support we can continue to improve and expand these valuable benefits.
Thank you for helping me raise funds for my life charity.
