Participant Page: Half Century (50 mile) Bike Ride for Balance
At the end of 2011, my doctor delivered the diagnosis:
"You have Meniere's disease. There is no cure. It causes the vertigo, the dizziness, the pressure in your ears, everything you've described."
It was one of the scariest moments of my entire life. I had no hope, no concept of a future worth living.
But today I live a great life. I was eventually able to fight for my health, and while I still have Meniere's disease, I've been able to manage my symptoms incredibly well.
When I was first diagnosed, I couldn't conceive of being able to ride a bicycle. I was having vertigo attacks and was dizzy all the time.
There were many things I thought I would never be able to do again.
But that was then.
On May 20th (weather permitting), and with your support, I will complete my first 50 mile ride!
A balance disorder can completely destroy your quality of life. It did for me for a long time.
Help me raise hope (and some money too) for the millions of people around the world who are still suffering.
Together, our voices will be heard.
We can make a difference, and VEDA is the organziation to make that happen.
