RiPPa, editor and publisher of The Intersection of Madness & Reality, is facing a medical crisis and is in need of our help.
I’m Going Blind – I Need Your Help
Breathing is one of the many things in life that we all take for granted. Good health and sight are two more. Even though I’ve lived with diabetes for years, I never envisioned a time where I would be contemplating what life would be like if I could not see. Even with the progress made by the ACA, there are still many like myself facing surgery and medical bills that no one could forsee or plan for. Right now I am facing a major one.
I am so profoundly moved and touched by the incredible outpouring of support from everyone. Words for one of the few times in my life fail me. What has been done in 24 hours through the generosity of strangers is the stuff of legend. It is those stories that we read about but never think it could happen to us.
I decided last night that whenever I reached my funding goal that I would leave the campaign up and donate any excess funds to the local St. Judes Children’s Hospital here in Tennessee. I will also be making a donation to the American Diabetes Association. Both organizations are fitting recipients of the generosity that I have been fortunate enough to partake of and are engaged with dealing with issues of health with obvious societal overtones – so please if you planned to give still feel free to do so with the knowledge that your support will go to help someone.
Please know that on behalf of myself and my family we as a body are truly, deeply and eternally grateful for the support no mattter what form it takes and we all Thank you !
