40 Days of Giving to Honor of Erich G. McChesney
Hannah and I started supporting the Brain Aneurysm Foundation after Erich died because we know that while we lost our loved one to this disease, many others have and will be saved due to the amazing research being done by this organization.
During this unprecedented time in our world - battling an unknown disease on a global level - we know it feels scary and even chaotic.
We understand that feeling more than we would like. The desire to have supplies, cures, research, vaccinations and a full arsenal of tools to fight a disease is not a given. We must designate resources to do this work. We must plan ahead for the inevitable frightening things that come our way. Supporting research for important causes that are close to your heart should not cease just because we are all scared. We encourage you to lean in to the current landscape of uncertainty and fight to show that we will not stop supporting things that matter. Keep giving when and where you can! However you can!
If a small portion of your efforts lands with us - and our desire to support the Brain Aneurysm Foundation - then we will be forever grateful.
40 Days of Giving Campaign:
We would like to find 40 people who would consider making a one-time $10 donation between March 28th and May 6th. During that time in 2016, Erich spent 40 days in the Norfolk ICU and fought hard to come back to us, however, a higher power had other plans for him and that was not to be. Erich passed away very peacefully early in the morning on May 6th, 2016.
Help us make sure that his life and his fight will has a bigger purpose.
During this time, while we all are home and with our loved ones trying to protect ourselves and our families from the unknown - take a moment to think about Erich, share a story or a photo, and give a gift of $10!
We will be forever grateful and I know Erich will appreciate being lifted up in your thoughts and memories! As he would say, "Be Good - Be Safe - and We'll see ya on the other side!"
