A Personal Aside
This has nothing to do with WoW, MMOs, or Wowhead, but it's very important to me personally so I wanted to take a moment to talk about it with you.
Some of you remember my brother, William. He blogs here occasionally under the name
. He's also suffering from a chronic, debilitating, incurable illness called
Crohn's is an auto-immune disorder of the digestive tract. Basically what happens is that the antibodies in your digestive system go a little nuts, and they start attacking your body's own tissue. The results are abdominal pain, dietary restrictions, diarrhea/constipation, infections, and frequent surgery. William himself has been forced to have his intestines re-sectioned twice, at the age of 25.
Because of this, he and I are taking part in a fundraising walk this Sunday for the
Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America
. I mention this here because we are still looking for pledges and donations, and anything you can provide will help.
If you're interested in making a donation, the site is here:
The recommended donation sizes are very high, but there is a separate box allowing you to enter in any amount you like, and even $1 can make a big difference. To donate, just click the "
Support William Now
" link at the top of the page.
Thanks for taking the time to consider this. It's a big deal to me and my family.
