发表于 2014-9-30 22:00 | 显示全部楼层 |阅读模式
       作为BlackBerry开发社区的成员之一和BlackBerry Elite成员,居住在特立尼达和多巴哥的Morten Lindstrom付出了大量时间和精力来帮助其他人,但这次他需要BlackBerry社团的帮助了。# Y; x0 h  r# y' L  o9 ~! j
       因为他的妻子Nicole最近被诊断出患有镰状细胞性贫血病。尽管Morten从他个人工资、银行贷款、保险和所在地社区筹集了高达250000美元,但这些还都不够足以在美国可以得到有效治疗。而他的妻子Nicole的症状已经发展到包括肺、心脏等器官开始衰退的地步,她身体太虚弱无法旅行到美国治疗,因此Morten尝试着募集另外的$40000基金来帮助他妻子恢复身体,好去美国治疗。3 z2 N7 ^" m. `+ P6 ?- x  V

BlackBerry United: One of our members needs yourhelp!!!
    You might not know the name MortenLindstrom but if you look carefullythrough a lot of BlackBerry webinars, developer documentation and various otherparts of BlackBerry related content, you're sure to find his name. Morten ispart of the BlackBerry community, especially the developer community being a BlackBerry Elite member. He gives up a lot of his time to help others but this time around Mortenneeds some help from #TeamBlackBerry.
Morten lives in Trinidad with his wife Nicole, whowas recently diagnosed with sickle cell anemia. As Morten puts it, in thebeginning it was all about being able to handle the pain, and good dietcombined with pain killers was enough to help Nicole live a happy and positivelife. However her situation soon deteriorated and she began having constantpain that not even morphine could stop, her energy level started dropping, andthe days went from being active, to a fight for survival, all in less than ayear.
    While there is treatment available in the UnitedStates and Morten has raised a whopping $250,000 from insurance, from hispersonal funds, bank loans, and his local community, it's not enough. Nicole'ssymptoms have progressed to a point where her organs have started failing,including her lungs, and she now has heart problems. She's dying. She's simplytoo weak to travel to the United States and Morten is trying to raise an additional $40,000 to fund a local specialist to build up her body strength, to fund thetravel, and to get her to the treatment she needs.
Folks in the community have already raised $18,440but it's simply not enough and that's where you come in. If you can find it inyour heart to donate a few dollars to help Morten and Nicole out, that would beamazing.
    We realize this post might have come out ofnowhere, but we do ask for the entire BlackBerry United community’s help. Wecannot possibly imagine being in Morten's position as we’re sure many of youcan't either. If you're looking for more details, we fully encourage you to check out Morten's fundraising page.

Alec Saunders has even written up a blog post for Morten and Nicole, along withissuing a challenge for everyone who does donate:Personally, I have donated $200. Here's what else I will do: I will donate another $250 when the campaign reaches $10,000, $250 more when the campaign reaches $20,000, $250 more when it reaches $30,000 and $250 more when we achieve the $40,000 target. That's another $1,000 I'll contribute.We realize this post might have come out of nowhere, but we do ask for the entire BlackBerry United community’s help. We cannot possibly imagine being in Morten's position as we’re sure many of you can't either. If you're looking for more details, we fully encourage you to check out Morten's fundraising page.# X0 i8 Z" t4 w
