-bottled message-
Hey there!

Welcome to my Extra Life fundraising page! I'm on a mission to help sick and injured kids in my local community and I need your help. My local Children's Miracle Network Hospital treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their illness, injury or even their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries they may get from just being a kid.

To help raise funds and awareness for these sick and injured kids, I'm participating in this huge worldwide movement called Extra Life. Gamers of all kinds pledge to play everything from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's for 24 hours! It's my sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to my hospital.

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. You can click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to make a safe and easy online donation.

I need your help to reach my goal For The Kids. Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!

my story

first off my chosen hospital is duke childrens hospital. this is now my fourth year doing this fundraiser and my reasons are plenty. i wont post all of them here cause well... family drama reasons and this is the internet after all. 
not long after i was born the doctors noticed a heart murmur. i had a heart defect and needed open heart surgery. when they went in i not only had one but TWO defects. they fixed both. then when i was three they had to go back in and fix an overgrowth of muscle from were the heart was healing over the patch.
hearts all healthy now though it beats faster than normal but thats ok! :D

since then ive been diagnosed with ADD, Depression, an Anxiety Disorder, minor brain damage, half blind in one eye from unknown causes, migrains are a problem i have scoliosis and joy the list go's on and on but im stopping there cause im not comfy continuing. 

life has been interesting but the doctors at duke have helped lots. so have my family and freinds. especially my mom. (bio mom.) :P

anyway thats it plz donate im cool with a dollar. or heck... JOIN US 0-0
