Whooshers.com Pulsatile Tinnitus Funds
Whooshers.com provides information and support for pulsatile tinnitus patients and the medical professionals who treat them, as well as for family and friends of those impacted by this rare symptom.
Our community is petitioning several organizations and people serving in the World Health Organization's Steering Group for a formal diagnosis code for pulsatile tinnitus. As of now, there is no diagnosis code for our symptom, which means many of us are being misclassified, misdiagnosed and not evaluated properly. We have reached over 1000 signatures on the petition, which was our goal.
These funds are being raised to help with costs associated with printing the pages (over 125!) and mailing them around the world. We'd like to send the petition to as many people on the committee as possible. When possible we will send electronic copies, but printed copies will be necessary.
To see our petition and some of the parties we intend to contact please go to: http://www.change.org/petitions/pulsatile-tinnitus-is-not-tinnitus-create-a-pulsatile-tinnitus-diagnosis-code-icd-10-cm
All funds will go towards the expenses associated with circulating the petition. If there are any extra funds, 100% of them will go towards maintenance of Whooshers.com, organizing more Whooshers Unite! events, and other support activities for our community.
Thanks for your support!
Yours in the Whoosh,
*Whooshers.com is not yet a registered 501(c)(3) but we're working on that! For questions about taxes, please consult a tax professional.
Thanks so much for the overwhelming support! Originally
this was created to raise money to help pay for costs associated with
circulating the petition. In less than one day we made our goal of
$500! I've been overwhelmed with the generosity. I've raised the cap
on this to $5000 to give people the opportunity to contribute if they
want to. All funds will go towards circulating the petition, and
additional funds will support Whooshers.com and the creation of a
nonprofit organization for our community. Every penny!
Thank you so much!
