Sadly I cannot donate, but good luck to William!
HOLY COW! This is kinda exciting to hear (in a weird sense) to see wowhead supporting Chrons disease research. I myself have been diagnosed with Chrons disease around 6 to 8 years ago (I am 19 now). Its been a tough battle but I've been blessed with less problems then others have had to deal with. At the moment I've been through 3 or 4 different methods of treatment (steroids, Remicaid treatments, at the moment I'm on Humira) and because of prayers and family support I'm doing really well.I hope research will quickly find a cure, Chrons is not on my list of things I want to keep.
Sadly, I can't help since I dont have an International credit card.I can wish you luck, if it is of any help.
Hey there, I will definitely pledge. I posted on your facebook too. I actually am a strong supporter of this cause as well, as myself and several members of my family suffer from this and also ulcerative colitis, so I understand his pain. I am 22 and have had to deal with colonoscopies and experimental drugs, etc. since I was 16 due to this. It's really a more serious condition than society gives it credit for, and I am glad to see this cause receiving more recognition! Hope you don't mind I also shared your facebook story with my facebook friends and family so they can contribute as well. I hope we can find a cure together. :)
You are brave to say all this and start this campaing, it shows how much you care for your close ones. Hope you and your brother can get better. Best Wishes.
I was diagnosed with familial polyposis (another disease of the digestive track) 9 years ago. I've had several surgeries, including two dealing with the removal of the majority of my colon. To see a related disease being mentioned by wowhead is fantastic. I worry that a lot of these lesser known illnesses can get downplayed by people who are uninformed and that the full story of the people effected's ordeals are not known. I wish your brother well and hope that your fundraising walk is successful, and I wish I was able to make a donation.
Get well William
While I cannot donate anything myself, I wish him luck for the future.
I feel sorry for your brother.
Just put in a donation, its really great of you to help your brother like this. Good luck.
Donated $5, not a lot but better than nothing.
Perhaps one of the best teachers I've had was a former military male and his subject was English. But alas he only stood with us for perhaps 3 months. One day he was taken to the hospital in a hurry and then was diagnosed the Chron's Disease, he was discharged but, soon enough, he passed away when another crisis made him fall from a staircase.I'm sad to say that I cannot contribute, to wish the best for William is all I can do.
I have Crohn's Disease as well, I've had 11 surgeries in the past 16 years and have a very severe case, just stay optimistic! Also, look into Humira, that medication is working wonders for me! If William ever needs anyone to talk to feel free to hit me up.Best Wishes,Andrew
