Ik collecteer omdat:
Hope this message finds you well. As most of you know, it's been almost a year since I lost my dad to a cerebral infarction.* The day before he passed away, I got called and entered a ridiculous rollercoaster ride that I have barely left (still). That day I had a sad fourteen hours to say my goodbyes to a loved one whom I expected to live much and much longer. Yet, if it wasn't for brain research and the doctors' expertise, it would've been much shorter.
The Hersenstichting aims to contribute to that research and is also being supported by local fundraisers this week**—I will be among those who appeal to people's goodness in front of supermarkets and the like. As much as I'd love to come to everyone in person, this won't be possible. I'm nonetheless putting a small donation link up here and hope you still want to support this invaluable research.
The webpage is in Dutch and I trust that most of you will find their way, but if not, drop me a line and I'd be glad to help out. To my friends who still live at AvB: if I'm not out, I'll be around and do rounds or try to raise funds from my room (457 (sc), 10) or Lounge 10 (CR). If you catch me anytime this week, I can put something in the donation box as well!
I really appreciate any support that you can give to this organisation and know that you'd be a great help to other patients and their loved ones!
With much love,
*(herseninfarct, stroke iskemik, infarctus cérébral)
