Readers, my friend Dana needs your help! She is FUNdraising to help ease the burden of the medical bills that have resulted from her battle with an autoimmune disease. You can read the complete details of her story here.
Dana is compiling beloved comfort food recipes (and the stories behind the tasty dishes) from anyone who is willing to contribute; the recipes can then be accessed by anyone who donates. Plus, the more you give, the more additional incentives you’ll receive!
Dana has undergone 11 surgeries and will soon be faced with surgery number 12 to prevent blindness, which is inevitable if her disease is left untreated. With Dishing for Dana, she has set a goal of raising $22,000 to go towards covering her current medical bills, insurance premiums for the remainder of 2011, and a generous donation to the American Autoimmune Related Disease Association.
I donated, which means I have full access to all of the great recipes on the site — and it has been so fun to read through them all. I also contributed my own recipe, which will be added to the site soon. If you can, I hope you’ll find a way to contribute and help my friend out, as well!
