ARDS AFFECTS LIVES
Would you like to increase ARDS Awareness and raise funds for ARDS?
Consider being part of Voices of ARDS.
For a donation of $100, we will use your image, or that of a loved one, as an Voice of ARDS.
ARDS Foundation used a video editor for the images to properly edit the image I work with an experienced video editor who also has a tremendous amount of creative experience for over 30 years. He used to work in NYC on cutting edge advertisements and also has a healthcare background in his varied career. He is very involved and invested in ARDS Foundation and has been working on some of our most engaging awareness projects.
I, of course, am intricately involved with each image as well. By utilizing my 20 years experience at ARDS Foundation, as its President, by talking to thousands of those in the ARDS Community over the years, by working with medical professionals, engaging in medical research, and taking every opportunity to do whatever I can to make a difference in the fight against ARDS, I bring my everything to each Voice.
*We ask for you to share 3-5 photos of your loved one (in their original format, meaning no editing at all so that the photo we choose will end up being the best image that will be properly edited for Voices).
*We ask you to share a couple of comments that you felt summed up something particular or impactful for you about ARDS.
*You can also briefly share some information about what happened in general so we can have a greater understanding, even though only one or two thoughts would be included on the image.
*We also need to know the name of you or your loved one and the age that they were when they were diagnosed with ARDS.
Through Voices, we feel we are able to effectively share the image and this piece of someone’s story visually and effectively that gives people a glimpse and that it raises awareness enough hopefully for people to want to learn more, to become educated and informed. The truth is that when I got ARDS back in 1995, I never heard of it. And still today, in 2019, most families tell me that they never heard of it until their loved one was diagnosed. (And the same goes for all those years in between).
If you choose to participate, you consent to the use of the photos and comments to be used on our website and our social media for ARDS awareness, education and fundraising.
We hope that you will agree to participating. If you have any questions please ask.
