Welcome to My CURE Fundraiser!
Stache for the CURE
Here is the way this will work: Starting Monday, September 23rd, I stop shaving. After 4 weeks, it all comes off - except for the moustache. The goal is for me to keep the moustache for a full week - but open to keeping it longer if we raise enough. My wife is the only person to have ever seen me with a moustache, and well, let's just say that she hoped to never see it again. She was not on board with this challenge - until I told her it will help raise money for epilepsy research. She quickly changed her mind.
Our daughter has epilepsy. It is a brutal disease - with little understanding of the cause. Medicine today is simply to treat the symptoms, not to cure the illness. We are fortunate in that the type she has seems to be under control with basic meds - but it is a part of her daily life and requires constant vigilance. I cannot imagine how hard it is for families to deal with more severe varieties.
There are almost 3.4 million people in the United States with epilepsy. It is time to find a cure.
My goal is to raise $5,000. I have commitments for $1,400 already - a really solid start! Anything that you can do to help, is GREATLY appreciated! If I come up short of my goal, I will donate the amount that gets us to $5,000. If we hit the $5,000 level, I will match it. If we all do the company match, we will really make a difference!
If you can contribute or not, you are most welcome to give me grief for what promises to be a pretty awful looking moustache!
