Ease Eric's End - Cystic Fibrosis

《《《BASIC INTRODUCTION》》》 This campaign is an extremely determined effort to support a 31-year-old Cystic Fibrosis patient named Eric & his struggling family. For 31 years Eric & his family have been intensively battling his numerous chronic illnesses, most of which revolving around his Cystic Fibrosis. Eric's lungs have been repeatedly failing, & after many weeks in the ICU amidst intubation for 2 weeks (breathing tubes in lungs, ventilator support, sedation, etc) and then extubation (removal of breathing tubes & ventilator support) - the result was unsuccessful. The focus has now shifted to end of life care to provide a comforting end to what his leading Cystic Fibrosis medical team strongly believe to be his final battle he will endure. 《《《FIRST THINGS FIRST》》》 My name is Brian - I am Eric's 20-year-old brother & spokesperson. I will be putting all my heart & soul into organizing this campaign to support my incredibly amazing brother as this battle of his nearingly comes to a close. First things first, I want you to know something - just the simple fact that you are taking this small amount of time from your daily life to read these words I am writing to you - brings me genuine appreciation from everything within me. I most certainly understand not everyone can afford to donate a significant amount, no matter how great the cause. The word significant, however, is open to interpretation. To Eric, myself & the rest of Eric's family - any support received is indeed significant no matter what the degree of support. It is significant to us not only due to our sincere appreciation - but also significant to think we all as humans can unite together towards achieving a common cause. Whether it be positive thoughts and wishes, or prayers - and/or something even more direct such as donating and sharing this on Facebook & all other media platforms you desire - my personal mission within this campaign is to do my best to express our wholehearted appreciation to each & every supporter towards this cause. I have no expectations for you to support this campaign. However, what I do have - is a hope that you read this through to the end, a goal that these words reach you well, & determination to fulfill this ultimate purpose of supporting Eric & his family through this incredibly difficult time. 《《《HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT》》》 •Any monetary amount would be absolutely appreciated more immensely than could possibly be expressed in words. •Whether or not you join the many others who show their gracious support financially, a HUGE way to support would be if you could please share this anywhere you can - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Text/MMS, anywhere you can/are willing to. We ask that whether or not you yourself are able to financially support, you don't turn away - if you have a free moment please share this cause with family, friends & social outreaches. It would be gratefully appreciated. •Any positive thoughts, wishes, and prayers within this situation would also be greatly appreciated. 《《《THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT》》》 From our family to yours - we want you to know that we so genuinely appreciate your support from everything within us. If you've read this far, congratulations! You've reached the end, & having read this from the beginning - we give you all the credit you deserve because we know it wasn't the shortest read. We are endlessly grateful for the support you give us after reading this passage. FRIENDLY REMINDER: If you help reach beyond the $25,000 USD goal, we intend to donate excess funds beyond that to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (https://www.cff.org) to help other Cystic Fibrosis families too. 《《《CLOSING REMARKS》》》 Support is a two-way street. Best wishes & positivity to you and those important to you also! Please be sure to share this on Facebook or Instagram including the words "Ease Eric's End - Cystic Fibrosis" and the hashtag #easeericsend in addition to showing your support/describing how you supported - so we can attempt to reach out to express our appreciation!
