WOW WOW WOWA massive THANK YOU to everyone that supported me in the Stay in Bed Day campaign. Surprisingly, it went so quick, 8 hours from 9 to 5. I thought I'd do some reading, watch TV or play games on my phone and have a nap.
Over halfway already!Gee time flies when you're busy staying in bed!
We're underway on stay in bed day!I was interviewed this morning about 8.50 by ABC Radio Newcastle. I could've said more about Mito Foundation but they needed to cut to the news at 9...
It's on tomorrow!
Update as at May 5th.Hi
Thank you Anonymous donator $27.15I'm sure the Mito Foundation will appreciate your gift.
I'm staying in bed to help find a cure for mito!
On Friday 22 May, I’m taking part in Stay In Bed Day to support Australians like myself living with mitochondrial disease (mito).
Why am I doing this? Because for too many people living with this disease, finding the energy to get out of bed is a daily struggle.
Fortunately for me, at this time that's only occasionally.
Although I do find that my energy levels do drain quicker than others.
For those who might not be aware, mito robs the body’s cells of energy, causing multiple organ dysfunction or failure. It affects one child born in Australia each week. That’s 50 Aussie kids every year. Presently there is no cure.
And right now, mito patients are among the most vulnerable during the COVID-19 crisis as their ability to fight infection is extremely limited.
That's why I’m asking for your support.
For some of you this is my second request and I again thank you for your kind donations to my first Stay in Bed day for mito research back in 2017.
So, please consider sponsoring me this Stay In Bed Day and support my attempt to provide funds for the vital support services and research to help people living with mito.
You’ll receive a tax-deductible receipt for tax time (June 30 is not far away).
Thank you so much for your support.
Thank you to my Sponsors
