This fundraiser is for Julia Hunter and her family to offset medical expenses. Julia is the eldest of 4 children and is going into her senior year at Newburgh Free Academy High School in NY. She is also a member of the varsity baseball team and has been named a captain next year! In December 2016 Julia was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS).
After ‘a lifetime of pain and eight years of tests, misdiagnoses and ill health’. EDS is a genetic condition that means connective tissue holding the body together is faulty and too weak, causing extreme widespread pain, daily dislocations, cardiac abnormalities and multiple other illnesses. It affects around one in 5,000 people worldwide.
With her strong will and EVERYONE’S prayers and support, we all believe Julia will strike out cancer and smile in the face of adversity! It’s time we come together and help Julia and her family in this time of need!! Please help in any way you can! Cancer: What you need to know. Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential.
These contrast with benign tumors, which do not spread to other parts of the body. Possible signs and symptoms include a lump, abnormal bleeding, prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss. While these symptoms may indicate cancer, they may have other causes. Over 100 types of cancers affect humans. Tobacco use is the cause of about 22% of cancer deaths.
Another 10% are due to obesity, poor diet, lack of physical activity, and excessive drinking of alcohol. Other factors include certain infections, exposure to ionizing radiation and environmental pollutants. In the developing world, nearly 20% of cancers are due to infections such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C and human papillomavirus infection.
