I Was Called Out

August 21, 2014

I was scrolling through my facebook page last night and came across this young guy who was called out to do the ice bucket challenge. It turned out that he is all too familiar with the disease as his grandmother had died from it, his mother is currently struggling with it, and he, himself has just been diagnosed with it. It was funny at first as he’s prancing around in pink shorts and a bikini top- washing a car.  Then it gets rather sad toward the end because he gave us a glimpse of what he has seen and what he has to look forward to. I pasted the link below if you want to see it. It’s worth watching as it made me want to get involved.

Before I saw this, I didn’t realize what a debilitating disease this was and felt so awful for this kid to have seen what it’s done to his mother and grandmother and realize that it’s something that he is going to have to face. It was heartbreaking. So I was called out to take the challenge- and I am more than happy to do it. I really wish I could do more……Here’s the video in which I was “called out”.
