Anyone Can Be a Fundraiser

0 Comments   |   
Like 0 Likes

From the start, Kristy and I committed ourselves to giving all we could to support The LAM Foundation’s research. But after a couple of years I realized there is only so much that one family can do alone. So, I decided I was going to have a “fund-raiser”.

I had heard many of the success stories about patients, their families and friends having fund-raisers. But, even though I have always enjoyed giving to other people, the idea of asking for money for myself (or even for my family) makes me uncomfortable. I know that a lot of people probably feel this way, but this just was too important to let those feelings deter me.

My biggest fear when I was growing up (other than sharks of course) was always that I would grow up and be ordinary. For as long as I can remember, something in my gut always told me that I was destined to do something unique and amazing. Little did I know that I would, in fact, become extraordinary, just not for the reasons I wanted.

What I Learned on Capitol Hill

I learned a lot of great lessons during my time ‘on the Hill’. I learned that my congressional representatives want to hear from their constituents about what matters to them. I learned that even though they may not understand what LAM is, they want to learn and want to help. And I learned that if you are visiting your representatives on the Hill, you should DEFINITELY wear comfortable shoes.
