Welcome Warriors! I’m joining the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) to help patients like me discover a life rebalanced.
Vestibular disorders affect millions of people each year and they are more common than you may realize. Even more debilitating are the symptoms of dizziness, vertigo, tinnitus, brain fog and anxiety. Some vestibular patients can no longer work. While some people recover, others suffer to some degree their entire lives.
I have Meniere's disease, which is a chronic, incurable vestibular (inner ear) disorder. When Meniere's attacks hit me, i am completely disabled. I am not able to drive because of the unpredictible nature of Meneire's attacks. When I have a Meneire's attack, I cannot walk unassisted. I usually have to lay down and I go through a mentally and physically exhausting attack full of vertigo, hearing loss, ear pain.
I have a passion for helping others see that they are not alone with Meniere's disease and I do that by sharing videos on YouTube so those with Meniere's know they are not alone. I am raising money on behalf of every Meniere's patient I have met.
My personal goal is to raise money to help empower and support vestibular patients on their journey back to balance. Your donation goes directly to VEDA’s patient support and education programs. Donations also help VEDA advocate for improved vestibular healthcare coverage and connect patients to qualified medical professionals.
I know there are many worthwhile causes out there, and it can be hard to choose which to support. This cause is important to me because it affects me so personally as well as people I care about: fellow patients & friends! Thank you for caring and taking the time to learn about my vestibular experience. Your support means so much to vestibular patients like me!
Keep Warrioring On!
