Meet Tania Competiello.
Tania's took on the 50 State Challenge in Massachusetts with yoga!
HHT has affected Tania's family in the most devastating way, the untimely loss of a young loved one in Tania's family. But, Tania's HHT diagnosis also sparked a passion within be an HHT warrior for life!
Tania fights for her baby girl who inherited the HHT gene. She fights for her family who have been cursed with HHT. She fights for those that are just finding out about HHT and are scared, anxious, lonely and helpless. And, Tania fight for herself, to continue to have the strength to keep fighting for a cure to be found!
Tania took on the 50 State Challenge by organizing a charity yoga class with one of her favorite local studios. She set a ticket price for registration that included entrance to the class, goodies and swag. And, Tania had some incredible raffle baskets that people could participate in both online and at the event. Tania raised close to $2,000 and spread awareness about this disease to her friends and family. Way to go, Tania!
In Tania's own words, "HHT does not discriminate, it knows no race, gender, nationality, religion, appearance or social status. We must find a cure, and for this reason I am a part of the 50 State Challenge!"
