Allison Reynolds is asking for your help .. She and the Foundation 5 Million in Australia .. people with MS raising money for research into the cause and cure of MS .. is trying to raise $1,000,000 from their Blog and Website. Donations can be made via Payal, and hopefully there are a million people out here on the internet to donate $1.00. MS Reseach Australia will disseminate the funds to properly qualified research projects. Details of current research projects can be found on their site.
What Is The Great NetXperiment (& Why Should I care?)
The Great NetXperiment is my baby. My name is Allison Reynolds and I live in Sydney, Australia and in January 2000 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
At that time I was in hospital unable to walk, barely able to talk, and the worried doctors thought I had a fast growing brain tumour that would kill me before the year was out. Luckily for me it was “just MS” (their description not mine) and packed me off home once the novelty of my crazy symptons were now explainable to them.
MS is a baffling disease. Symptoms come and go, each day bringing a new challenge, and each relapse leaving me slightly less able than I was before. Living with not knowing what is coming takes some getting used to, and the threat of losing cognitive and bodily functions, while still young, is something I would not wish on my worst enemy. But live with it I do, my family does, my friends do, and millions of others around the globe do. That is not acceptable. A cure and the cause MUST be found.
I am here to raise funds for research into the causes and cure for MS by using the love of my life, the Internet. I’m inviting you to participate in this internet phenomena by contributing to the Great NetXperiment. Each and every dollar goes to MS research, and I look forward to your contribution helping millions around the world who NEED that cure now.
