Selfless Selfies & High Five Hope

Yesterday was an amazing day for Cancer Research. The make-up free selfies took hold quicker than any Social Media craze I have ever seen - and as a social media perv I've seen A LOT of them. 

The campaign achieved it's aim of awareness, it truly did. Reports keep increasing on the amount of money raised and the amount of selfies shared and watching that happen is fantastic. 

Everybody backed the campaign because everybody knows about the disgusting disease. My brave best friend won her own battle and I am forever grateful she did and for the people, research and awareness that helped her do that. 
I don't think there are many people that can say this disease hasn't affected them in some way and that is why the campaign worked. Even the people who didn't 'GET' it were generally confused how it would help. I don't believe anybody out there would say I am not doing this because I simply don't want to. 

Which brings me to my next point. I actually wasn't nominated to take a selfie so I haven't taken one. However, I also haven't been nominated to take part in the MNDA High Five campaign, but I will be doing so. 

The makeup free selfie campaign did something for Cancer research that the MNDA can only dream of. Not as many people are affected by MND and therefore, the charity is not as close to many people's hearts. 
I am not pitting the conditions or the charities against each other and I never would, I am simply saying I can guarantee every person reading this blog knows what Cancer is - but do you truly know what Motor Neurone Disease is? 

I know not many people do, because when I needed to tell Family and Friends my FiancĂ© had been diagnosed with it, many people needed to ask what it was, or simply said 'I hope he feels better soon'. This is exactly what I would have done in the same situation. I only knew about it because I needed to and that shouldn't be the case. 

This condition has no cure and they will not find a cure whilst people don't back the cause and fund the research. 

That is why I have strong feelings about raising awareness. Because the phrase means everything to me. It is at the centre of my whole World. 

I am not the only person who feels like this and MND campaigners have bravely taken to Social Media to stand up for what they believe in and created the High Five to the MNDA campaign. Take a look at them. Some of them are truly heartbreaking and every single one is dedicated to a real person, memory or feeling - because the MND campaigners fight for those real people in their lives every day. 

My fiancĂ© is the bravest person I know. I cannot put into words the admiration I have for him and I love him like my heart could burst. I want him to have the entire World and all he wants is to play football again. Seeing him fight this condition makes me proud, angry, happy and sad - every feeling under the sun except for defeat. 

Currently all we have is hope, but while we have hope we can pray for the miracle cure. Please, take five minutes of your time today to have a look at the MNDA site and understand the condition so if anybody ever mentions it to you, you know what it is. It might just inspire you to back the campaign and help us to achieve somewhere near some of the fantastic successes CRUK have reported on today.

  1. Hello everyone, I'm here to speak about the good work {Dr hazzan} has done in my life, the man who cured me from MND/ AIDS, I was infected by someone i loved and he didn't say it me he was MND positive. i was searching through the internet for help when i saw a comment of people speaking on how {Dr hazzan} has helped them cure their MND disease and other diseases, i didn't believe but i just choose to give Him a try to {Dr hazzan} and i contacted him through this e-mail (dr.hazzanherbalcentre@gmail.com) and i was told what to do and i did it. To my greatest surprise after patiently going according to instruction given to me by this man called {Dr hazzan} and i went for a medical test and the result was negative. I want to say thanks to Dr hazzan and God will bless you for the good work you are doing. you also contact this great and powerful man if you have any problem on your body via his e-mail: dr.hazzanherbalcentre@gmail.com or call him on +2348169340571

  2. I hope this will be of immerse benefit to someone living or just diagnosed
    of HIV. I was diagnosed of HIV 3 years ago, i came across a blog last month
    when I was browsing on my computer and i saw lot of testimonies and post
    from people making reference to a traditional doctor on how he used his
    natural herbal medicine called TATAHWE which they said can FLUSH the blood
    system from any virus or disease. Some testimonies was centered on;
    *HIV (with a very low cd4 count)
    *HEPATITIS B
    *HERPES,
    *EPILEPSY
    *CANCER,
    *DIABETIC,
    *STAPHYLOCOCCUS...
    I decided to give it a trial, though i never believed in herbal medicine
    but i was in a way convinced with the sort of amazing testimonies i saw
    online i decided to contact him, with the response he gave, He promised to
    prepare and send the "TATAHWE" Medicine to me. It was not up to a week
    after i placed an order, I got the medicine and he instructed me to drink
    the medicine for two weeks ( only evenings before bed) after which, I
    should go back to the hospital for a Re-Test. I followed his instructions
    and i discovered that my urine became yellowish for good two weeks so
    immediately i finished the medicine i went for the test the following week,
    it was very surprising i tested negative. I can't thank dr sani enough, so
    I decided to promote him because he cured me from my disease, there's no
    disease he can't cure with his medicine. Please also spread the good news
    to others so that those with same illness can be cured.email him at
    OBEHITEMPLE@OUTLOOK.COM or call +2348077309081
