I’m stepping up to defeat mental illness!
The CAMH One Brave Night for Mental Health challenge is a Canada-wide challenge to inspire hope for Canadians living with mental illness.
I took the #OneBraveNight challenge because I want to inspire hope for people living with mental illness now – and to defeat mental illness. By making a donation to my One Brave Night, you are helping CAMH improve access to care, conduct research to find better treatments, and build more spaces for healing.
This is our chance to step up! Please donate generously and help me reach my fundraising goal.
I am grateful to be supporting and raising awareness for Mental Health as this is a very heartfelt cause. Not too long ago, 5 years ago or so, the world caved in and brought me to my knees! Out of nowhere, I thought I was experiencing a stroke... a racing heart, shakiness, dizziness, nausea and weakness on my entire left side of the body! It was all so scary, an experience I do not wish upon anyone! At the time I had no idea what was going on, nor did I ever experience such inner turbulence and unknown feelings...pains...tiredness..weakness..tears..fear of driving, fear of being out in public, overall fear and more fear! I truly have experienced the very darkness of days, not knowing what to do or why it was even happening or what was happening for that matter. I have felt alone and in complete despair. Six to 8 months later of doctors, specialists and hospital visits, and some really difficult health diagnoses, I was also diagnosed with anxiety...panic attacks and depression! It was a very long endless dark road, one I didn’t think I could pull through! I couldn’t even eat, I lost weight and above all I lost myself! Never did I think my strength and courage and support from my loving family would pull me through such darkness and guide me to where I am today. This is such a debilitating disease that affect so many of us, so I ask you kindly, if you can make a donation, or sign up for the #OneBraveNight to end the stigma and extend your compassion to those in need, please do so today! Thank you kindly in advance for your help and support.
