Bam Going Bald for Tourette’s
- $5,075.00 donated
- 82 generous donors
I am fundraising for the TANZ by shaving my hair off because I appreciate the work they do for people who suffer from tics and Tourette’s.
18 months ago, I developed severe tics, which have changed the way I look at life and the people around me.
I have never believed that you should cover up who you are, least of all with your looks. In this case, I am shaving my hair off to fundraise for The Tourette’s Association who support people like me who suffer from tics.
In the last 18 months, I have experienced loss of use of my legs, speech and sight at different times. I also have both motor tics and verbal tics, some of which are funny and others not so much.
I’d like your help in raising money for what I believe is a great cause. Tics are far more common than people think, and the more we can do to increase awareness, it will help others like me.
If you would like to follow my journey on Facebook, just search Bam Updates (excuse the shameless self promotion :-)
