What’s up everybody!? I’m about to embark on a journey. A journey that means an awful lot to me. I’m going to hike to the summit of Mount Washington in New Hampshire! This really isn’t about the hike itself. I’m going to accomplish that goal no matter what. This is about helping to stamp out the stigma of mental illness. It’s also about conserving our wilderness trails.
I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder many many years ago. I’m thankful to an old Dr. of mine that prescribed the proper medication to help keep my highs and lows at a minimum. I have had many bumps in the road over the years, but for the most part, nothing too tragic has happened. For that I am extremely grateful.
Would you please consider making a donation or sharing this page? It would truly mean the world to me! Every penny of every dollar will be going to 2 incredible causes. I’ve set a pretty lofty fundraising goal, but I know for a fact that with all of you, it’s definitely possible!! Much love!
