FarmVille Freak Liberate Dave Contest Update!
Hello FarmVille Freaks!
We hope you are enjoying FarmVille Double Mastery and also your Labor Day weekend for those in the United States. We would like to update you on our FarmVille Freak Liberate Dave Contest.
While FarmVille Freak Dave_NC is still on the waiting list for his surgery or “Liberation Treatment”, we are still continuing with our fund-raising efforts and will announce the winners of the FarmVille Freak Liberate Dave Contest this upcoming week.
If you missed our initial post about Dave_NC who lives with Multiple Sclerosis and our FarmVille Freak Liberate Dave Contest, read below for more details.
Thank you for your support and participation!
Here’s what FarmVille Freak blogger Cabbage Patch Kid has to say,
“This FarmVille Freak Contest is one very close to the FarmVille Freak Family’s hearts. Our very own graphic designer FarmVille Freak Dave_NC suffers from multiple sclerosis and is seeking a new cutting edge treatment that may vastly improve the quality of his life, but is also very costly. Through my time at FarmVille Freak, Dave has become one of my closest and most valued friends, he is a unique and genuinely good person who has touched so many FarmVille Freak’s lives
I, along with FarmGoddess & Dr.Greenthumb, our FarmVille Moderators/Bloggers and valued regulars in chat ask you to take a moment to read a note from Dave_NC to the entire FarmVille Freak Community about his condition and situation.”
A Letter from Dave_NC:
Hello fellow freaks! Most of you know me as Dave_NC from the chat or from the graphic design stuff I have helped with on the FVF site. First, I would like to thank everyone in the FVF family for putting this together and helping to spread the word on CCSVI and MS.
I am sure you are asking what is CCSVI, MS, and what does it have to do with Dave_NC? It’s not possible for me to cover everything here but I will give you the basics as quickly as I can. In August of 2008 I awoke one Saturday unable to see out of my left eye. After a rather heart wrenching journey I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in October of 2008. For those not familiar with MS, it has always been categorized as an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord (Central Nervous System). MS is a very unique disease and affects everyone differently and to varying degrees. In 2009 a breakthrough discovery was made, called CCSVI (Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency). To put it simply as possible CCSVI is a plumbing problem in your veins, where blood can’t drain from the brain and spine because of blockages. Through tests, blockages are identified, then treated with an angioplasty procedure using balloons or stents. This has been named the Liberation Treatment, because MS patients are being liberated from their symptoms. The treatment is giving many with MS their functional lives back. It is truly remarkable.
In June, I decided to move ahead and get the treatment. I am in full fund raising mode to help me afford the procedure, as I await the exact date for treatment. If you would like to read more of my story, including how everything goes with my upcoming Liberation Treatment, you can start at “The Beginning” on my blog (http://mylifewms.blogspot.com). To pitch in and help or to learn more about CCSVI and the Liberation Treatment, please go here (http://www.liberatedave.com). There is lots of information, including quite a few videos. Please pass along the news about CCSVI and the Liberation Treatment to everyone you know who may be touched by MS.
