I’d like to propose a fundraiser in memory of Michael Douglas, Paul Dixon, and all other members of this forum who’ve passed away.
I’ll be honest: I have personally put off donating for a long time, either because I felt I wasn’t in a position to donate or I didn’t think it would make much difference. The truth of the matter is, the PFS Foundation is our only real hope to understand the mechanism of PFS and come up with a means to recover. That’s not to say people shouldn’t and can’t try their own methods to get better, but realistically no one on this forum is going to be able to conduct studies and publish papers. For that, we need scientists and doctors, which costs a lot of money. We will all benefit from anything that results from these endeavors, so is there any more worthy cause?
I don’t mean to preach, because I’ll fully admit I’ve freeloaded off the generosity of others hoping for someone else to fund and cure this problem. Today I’m finally holding myself accountable. Alone, I can’t make much difference, but collectively we can raise a significant amount on a recurring basis. Don’t be shy to even chip in a few dollars - whatever is affordable for you on a monthly basis.
I’m starting with $20. It’s not much, but it’s a start. If I can afford more I will increase the amount and update this thread accordingly.
Here’s the link to set up a recurring monthly donation via Paypal:
Respect to those who are already donating! If you’d like to donate more, feel free.
Total so far: $20 per month / $240 per year.
