I have a very sick cousin who is basically trapped in a body that doesn't work. All she can move is her eyeballs (she can use this movement to type on a computer). She has Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS ) - a degenerative and terminal disease that shuts down the body, bit by bit.

There's a competition going to win $5000 AUD towards a dream. My dream is that she receive treatment. All that's needed to win the $5000 grant is the highest amount of votes in the month of February.

Please click on this link to cast your vote! You have to fill out your name and email (to make sure you are just one person casting just one vote), but you don't even need to sign up to anything. I promise you won't ever get any emails from this site (unless you tick the box to subscribe), apart from the email to confirm your vote. Please make sure you click the link in that email!

If you want to be an absolute angel, please also share this link with your circles.

Thank you so very much! This means more to me than anything!

Voting is closed! The final tally was just over 5000 votes, with our dream in the number 1 spot! It'll take a couple of days to announce the winner (votes can still be disqualified), but it's looking good!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who voted, and especially those who shared and encouraged others to vote.

You've done an amazing thing! Thank you again!
