This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart.  Emotions came over me when Townsquare Media came to me saying they wanted to help raise money to go towards research for chiari.  I have been very open with my journey around chiari (and my daughter's journey with syringomyelia) and how hard it is to find treatment for a condition that holds no cure.  

If this is your first time seeing the word 'CHIARI'...let me be the first to tell you:  It is an excruciating disorder where the brain falls beneath the base of the skull crushing the spine and brain stem.  With it, comes a whole host of other neurological disorders.  Many patients have to travel outside of Maine & New England for ongoing treatment.  One day, my dream is to get all the neurosurgeons, in this state, the information and training they need to properly diagnose and treat chiari and its comorbidities.  This is why I have teamed up with a the WONDERFUL nonprofit American Syringomyelia & Chiari Alliance Project.

How can you help?  Donate your bottles!  B98.5 is hosting a HUGE bottle drive through the end of the month at Damon's Beverage Mart (in Augusta) and Damon's Beverage (in Waterville).  Damon's has offered to donate 6 cents per bottle or can!!  That's amazing.  Bring your bottles to one of those locations and say you want them to go towards B98.5's Bottles For A Cure ASAP! can see me...

On Saturday, April 21st.  I will be at the Augusta location from 9am - 11am and the Waterville location 12pm - 2pm.  I will be broadcasting LIVE from both locations!!  I'll have cool giveaways, B98.5 swag & ASAP swag to give ya!

We will also have a couple of pairs of great concert tickets at the event! You could win a pair of tickets to see Lee Brice or a pair of tickets to see Billy Currington this summer!

As we near Earth DAy, there's no better time to clean the cans and bottles out of your house and vehicle and donate them to a good cause!  Last September, I was able to share chiari patient's story...from Maine...for each day of the month!  The demand is high in Maine.  It's time that people see that.

Click Here to donate to ASAP.  Thank you!
