Further to that exciting offer:

Discovering Need Dollars is obviously quite an important cause for someone like me.


Regardless of whether there is any particular reference to Crohn's Disease of CFS, it's critical that we don't cut medical research funding. (And if it's cut for major public health problems, for diseases like mine we will be more behind than ever.)



Normally I don't even *think* about these sorts of events, but I've found myself feeling more and more annoyed about my inability to get to this one. (And I can't. I've already had to cancel another appointent tomorrow because of how crook I am today.)

And yes, I'd love people to simply go because they support the cause. But I am also quite serious about asking you, if you're nearby or can do it, to go and add yourself to the numbers quite specifically on my behalf.

Thankyou.

My best friend said to me last Wednesday "so I might be organizing a rally" and next thing...rallies ahoy! I'm so proud of her and her fellow medical researchers, doctors etc. for standing up and making some noise. I wrote letters to my local MP, who responded and included the letter he wrote to the minister on my behalf. Also wrote to every member of the budget committee. And signed all the online petitions.

Really wish I could be there tomorrow, but not sure I have that many spoons.

I had to stay back and man the departmental phone and door (oh! the power!), but I can happily say that the department was pretty much deserted. Everyone who could, went to the rally. :)
