Environmental illnesses are real
Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), Mastocytosis, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), Sick Building Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, Gulf War Syndrome—these are all environmental illnesses.
We need your help.
Environmental illnesses are isolating conditions of separation filled with loss and death: the death of dreams, futures, friendships; the loss of a familiar life in the middle of living it; all the ways we measure and value our worth no longer applicable. Avoidance, sadly, is a medical necessity for individuals living with environmental illnesses: they must avoid exposure to the chemicals and substances to which they react—on themselves, on others, and in the environment.
The Counseling Center at CELA is trying to make a difference. Your charitable gifts can help people get supports they may need but can’t afford, receive therapy and counseling, and have access to important resources.
Thank you for caring and thank you for your help!
