Six days until the Invisible Illnesses Benefit Evening with Chris Trapper and his moving acoustic music! The courageous Dama sisters are hosting the event to raise awareness of invisible illnesses. Allie Dama, became seriously ill in 2008 and was finally diagnosed with polyarteritis nodosa (PAN), an autoimmune vasculitis. Katie Dama Jaskolski spent too much of 2010 and 2011 in a wheelchair before being diagnosed with Dysautonomia, an autonomic nervous system disorder, and Ehlers–Danlos syndrome (EDS) a connective tissue disorder.
Katie and Allie are reaching out to help others, despite their diseases. Katie contacted Chris to tell him his song Avalanche helped him through her long struggle for diagnosis, and later asked him to headline the fundraiser – he agreed and will fly in from his home in Boston for the Saturday night, East Lansing event! There will be a cameo Coraggio appearance as well! See you there! http://iie.lifeasazebra.com/
