My legs still shake and my eyes almost cry when I remember my first find,
luckily caught on video ( http://youtu.be/a2CYQndarXM ).
That's why I invite you to donate to Marissa as I did, to share this
beautiful moment and also to thank people who helped us to reach our dreams.
Thanks Jos? Vicente Casado !
Thanks Dr.Jordi Llorca !

...with a $50-$500 donation!
If you have ever looked for a meteorite, let alone have been lucky
enough to have found one, then you know what an amazing and
exhilarating experience it can be. You have to power to help share
that experience with someone who will make history as the first person
to look for meteorites in a wheelchair (at least we're fairly certain,
if there's another out there please speak up).
Help make Marissa's dream a reality, please help by spreading the word
and donating today.
A sincerest thank you,
Michael in so. Cal.

>> Hello, List.
>> I am very pleased to share with you all the story of a young woman's
>> to realize a long-time dream: finding her first meteorite. What makes
>> story any different than that of countless other meteorite hunters to-be?
>> Rather than try to explain it myself I will let Marissa speak for
>> "I have a genetic disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy type 2. The
>> that travels down the spine and to the muscles telling them to move is
>> and doesn't work. The only reason I have some function is due to a short
>> back-up signal but it is short-lived and fades away. I have never walked
>> my own and when I was 4, I was in a wheelchair,
>> permanently... ...I do not tell you this to make you feel bad or sorry
>> me. I'm not sorry. I'm very lucky. I love life and just want to enjoy it
>> much as possible. This disease made me who I am and helped me see how
>> precious life is and I'm very thankful for that... ...I would love for
>> to be my first meteorite hunt but it may be my only hunt and I'd cherish
>> every minute of the hunt."
>> Several very generous members of our meteorite community have banded
>> together help Marissa complete this quest, but they cannot do it alone.
>> To read Marissa's full story and see what you can do to help, please
>> Thank very much for your help, together we can make this dream come true!
