Help Pushpa raise money

For participating in 2020 Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K

My Story…

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2003. It is an autoimmuine disease with over 300 symptoms. Everyday, many people with Celiac, like myself, struggle to find safe meal options when dining in or out. When gluten is consumed accidentally thru cross contamination, I become very sick. I am affected with many negative symptoms: vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, bloating etc. are just to name a few. Over time organs get run down and can result in serious complications. It takes 3 months or more to heal the lining of an intestine after each incident. All donations are greatly appreciated and every gift makes a difference. Thank you so much for your support.
