What we're about

Welcome to My Journey 4 Life! 🤗 This group is designed to bring together folks from all walks of life, who have one thing in common and that is the strong desire to work on becoming “whole or complete” in every area of their lives. If you are in the mindset of birthing a lifestyle change and becoming the best version of yourself as you can be, consider joining our group! We will focus on ways to properly care for our bodies, exercising, eating healthier/healthy dining, self care, self love, maintaining a healthy social life, mental/emotional health wellness, spiritual growth, finances, and learning to form healthy and happier relationships of different kinds with the people we love. In this group, you will not only have workout/accountability buddies but also plenty of fun events and activities to partake in! So exciting! 🤗 We all have our own path or what I’d like to call a journey to walk, but I don’t believe we were meant to do it alone. It is healthy for like minded individuals to come together! (No judgment or drama.) We have nothing but love for you in our group! 🥰 We look forward to meeting you!!! 🤗

Team CADASIL 2019 Walk

Kennedy Park

Hi Friends! My husband Asyadi and I have partnered with three nonprofit organizations CADASIL Research, Million Dollar Bike Ride, and Penn Medicine to host a CADASIL Awareness Walk in honor of my brother-in-law Keyastee, all who have passed away from CADASIL, and all those who are living with this hereditary disease. CADASIL (Cerebral Autosomal Dominate Arteriopathy with Subcortical Infarcts and Leukoencephalopathy) is a hereditary disease affecting all the small cerebral arteries. It causes damage to the white matter and nerve fibers of the brain; and it is due to various mutations of the NOTCH3 gene situated on chromosome 19. CADASIL has often been misdiagnosed as having MS or other related diagnosis’s. My Mother-in-law passed away believing she had MS. Keyastee’s Aunt was also diagnosed with MS. Spent many years being treated as such to only recently confirm a correct diagnosis. Lastly, his cousin passed away finally being properly diagnosed. My husband and I have had to step in and take in Keyastee. He now requires full time care and supervision. CADASIL causes: Strokes (Can lead to death.) Loss of balance and coordination Memory loss Extreme fatigue Extreme muscle weakness Bathroom incontinence Cognitive regression Mood disorder Body shakes Onset of migraines Currently there is no treatment or cure. Due to the lack of awareness many are still being misdiagnosed. With our walk we hope to raise funds that will help bring awareness, educate our communities, and further research that will hopefully lead us to treatment options or a cure. Please consider making a donation, walking with us, and sharing our event. Your donation is 100% tax deductible. http://givingpages.upenn.edu/KeyasteeIshmeal Learn more by visiting: www.cadasilfoundation.org Together we can make a difference! #TeamCADASIL
