My 9-year-old Grandson Tyler is trying to raise money for his 6 year old brother’s disease, Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome.
He wants to donate some of his match box cars to the less fortunate kids for money raised. The link is at the end of the post. It would be great to raise awareness to this invisible disease, but even better to raise money to find a cure.
Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome is a disorder that causes recurrent episodes of nausea, vomiting, and tiredness (lethargy). This condition is diagnosed most often in young children, but it can affect people of any age. The episodes of nausea, vomiting, and lethargy last anywhere from an hour to 10 days. An affected person may vomit several times per hour, potentially leading to a dangerous loss of fluids (dehydration). Additional symptoms can include unusually pale skin (pallor), abdominal pain, diarrhea, headache, fever, and an increased sensitivity to light (photophobia) or to sound (phonophobia). In most affected people, the signs and symptoms of each attack are quite similar. These attacks can be debilitating, making it difficult for an affected person to go to work or school.
So, if you could, please donate to CVSA, Ty, Mikey and the many kids, teens and adults who have CVS would greatly appreciate it. You can go to the CVSA Donations page to donate online or using the mail-in form (on the line that says how did you hear about CVS) please put Mikey and then he will get credit so Ty will know that he actually helped his brother out. If you would like to mail them a check please put Mikey in the memo. Whether you can donate or not PLEASE share post so we can spread awareness of CVS. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
