Something I have not really mentioned here on the blog before is my health. There is a first for everything!
19 years ago this mothers day my parents rushed me to the emergency room because I was violently ill. I had a very high fever that just wouldn’t break, swollen knees that I couldn’t really walk on, and a rash in the shape of a bulls eye stretching across my torso from my 10 year old chest (hey stop adding!) to the middle of my back.
My blood work didn’t find anything wrong yet since the infection was to new (only 4 days) but at the doctors first glance he already knew I had Lyme Disease.
At the time Lyme Disease was still something pretty new but luckily we lived very close to a University Hospital in New York where they had a clinic that specialized in Lyme Disease. I am not going to tell you every little detail about my recovery but I will tell you that it was LONG, miserable, and something that I wouldn’t wish on my worse enemy.
Why am I telling you all of this??
I was invited to an event on facebook tonight. A young woman named Brittany is currently battling this horrible disease, and her wedding photographer was so touched by her struggle that she has decided to host an online auction to help raise money for Brittany's next treatment.
If you would like to donate something you have made to this auction it would be greatly appreciated!! You can view the original post and contact the woman organizing this auction by visiting the blog post linked below.
Thanks again for reading!!!
