WUNNING (walking and running) towards a cure for Crohn's
As you may know (or maybe you don't), I've spent the last 28 years intermittently hospitalized and then recovering from living with Crohn's Disease. Last year, I almost died from surgical complications while having 4' of my diseased intestines removed. I was malnourished and my intestines were so inflamed, I was not able to stand erect. I had to have a second surgery 8 months later to repair another stricture (nearly total blockage of small bowel). I spent most of last year on the couch and/or in bed. I honestly didn't think I would survive. Prior to the surgeries, this disease has kept me disabled and in the worst pain you can imagine. It has kept me from working, sharply curtailed my relationships with family and friends and when you are feeling this bad, unpleasant to be around. My family is joining me for this 1/2 marathon, together we can make a difference.

It is now nearing eleven (11) months since my last surgery, and as my energy levels improve, I'm in a position to begin training for a half marathon to help raise funds for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA). By no means am I cured, at the present time, there is NO cure for Crohns Disease.

I've been so fortunate to have had the best physicians and staff. I've had a support network that has helped me come from the brink of death to participating in a marathon that will challenge my body and mind in ways I've never imagined. I ask for your help to raise at least $4,400 for CCFA, an organization that supports children and adults with Crohn's & Colitis.

There are thousands of people who are suffering from this disease. We have a chance to find a cure so that our children and our children's children won't need to suffer needlessly. I know times are tough right now. Any amount that you can give, $50, $100... $1,000 (a $1,000 donation I will personally get your name on my racing jersey AND your name will be included as a super-duper sponsor!).

I'm excited at the opportunity to show that I'm finally back on my feet while at the same time helping a good cause.

If you aren't comfortable using on-line payments, please make your check payable to CCFA and mail to:
Bruce & Sherry Dale
1458 Darwin Drive
Oceanside, CA 92056.

Thanks in advance!
