Life Without A Fork | Angioedema

Hello friends, family, celebrity associates, fans, colleagues, corporations supporters, sponsors and big pharma we need your help in putting Idiopathic Angioedema formally on the map and help in finding a cure!

Having gained a substantial amount of momentum with our global Remember efforts since our creation in 2009, our present goal is to expeditiously raise $27,000 to help grow our not-for-profit--we have done all necessary groundwork and now need the monies for the purposes of establishing "The Life Without A Fork, Cure Idiopathic Angioedema, Foundation " the first ever non-profit and foundation dedicated specifically to #The80Percent and all people living with the #advocacy of #angioedema, #orpansconditions, #urticaria and #anaphylaxis. We are also shopping our feature length documentary film to film-festivals, studios and networks and are seeking funds to this regards. We aim for awareness and a cure for this rare and life threatening condition known as Chronic Angioedema.

With helping us in our ambitious, yet very attainable determinations, you get to help save the lives of many men, women and children in need of your help!


As many of you already know, Life Without A Fork is a huge proponent of the collective healing motto in that we believe it really does take the support of a village of people to help make this campaign a success!

Your voices, shares, donations and desire to join in on this cause guarantees that at least one more person, corporation, blogger, media group or more will know how we are all doing our respective parts to help save lives!



Angioedema is an orphan's disease with three distinct classifications?

- Idiopathic Angioedema, comprises nearly 80% of all cases yet is less known than similarly, "new on deck," conditions such as ‪#‎Fibromyalgia‬ and ‪#‎Lupus‬, is finally gaining interest in the medical and pharmaceutical communities and now is the time to get that major financial backing for research, education, and outreach going in the right direction for cause and cure!!!

We have discussed this with professionals involved in this process and they have agreed with me, it is a numbers' game. Higher numbers of our population equates to what's in it for them which is why your likes and participation in our this funding campaign, our online discussions, films and events really all it takes to grow this effort at the pace we need--in place of time being lives we feel it's important to give people with angioedema a chance to focus on time for living and we know you agree!

- Hereditary Angioedema, comprises just under 20% of all forms of the condition, has a great organization with great philanthropy, and although still an orphan's disease, has established itself, at the very least, as being a condition of note meaning, unlike #The80Percent, it is officially on the map!

- Bradykinin Mediated Angioedema (Say what, now?! wink emoticon ), comprises about 2% of all cases, worldwide! Oh, and I know those two people. wink emoticon Not much is known about this most rarest form and, although sufferers mainly respond to medications as given to HAE patients, they do not receive nearly the same level of interest in research dollars and getting meds tailored specifically to the uniqueness of their disease. Again, the numbers.
Note: There are subclasses within each classification.

Please join us in getting some right attention around idiopathic and all forms of angioedema as well as the related conditions of #mastcellactivationdisorders, #anaphylaxis, #urticaria, and #Crohns.
