Who Will your Donations Be Supporting?
A dear mother crippled by Lyme Disease and her two daughters desperately need YOUR help.
Here is their story:
About a year and half ago my sister Victoria got very ill during the summer before she was to start her freshman year of high school. This was an extremely stressful time for my mom. Taking my sister from hospital to hospital and doctor to doctor she acquired lots of debt and no matter how many doctors or hospitals we went to none seemed to be able to help. Very long story short, we were able to find a clinic that diagnosed Victoria with Lyme disease and Black Mold intoxication. This meant a lot of treatment and a lot of monies would lay ahead. All the while my mother tried her best to make sure Victoria got what she needed and making sure that I myself wasn’t put aside. During this time my mom was also dealing with health issues of her own and couldn’t afford to pay for all the treatment Victoria needed.
Victoria has continued to deal with Lyme symptoms due to her serious illness. During this time she has been on home studies and the goal is to get her in a stable place so that she can return to going to normal school.
Just recently my mother was diagnosed with Lyme disease. My moms health is plummeting. The effects of the disease that were crippling her, have finally stopped her. I saw my mother with fear of losing my sister that sadly she neglected herself, obviously causing even more damage. Everyone tried to warn my mom but she was afraid and focused on getting my sister better. My sister has been receiving some care but she certainly still has her bad days and ER visits. My mom on the other hand is beyond struggling.
Some of my moms symptoms are:
- Difficulty breathing
- Sudden Panic attacks (with no trigger)
- Constant Headaches/migraines
- Neck and back stiffness and pain
- Tremors in neck, mouth, chest, arms & hands
- Sudden weakness and the inability to walk ,talk,stand,and move legs
- Numbness on left side of body from face to leg
- Swelling of the neck and tonsils
- Light and sound sensitivity
- Random face/body Twitching
- Inflammation everywhere.
- Difficulty walking
- Difficulty with getting words together and pronouncing words that shouldn’t be difficult to pronounce.
- Tingling in hands and feet
- Numbness and loss of mobility of left arm and hand.
- Sudden onsets of severe anxiety and depression
- Chest pain and pressure and
- Very jumpy and very easily startled.
Though she has tried different treatments her condition worsens. Her body won’t respond favorably to anything and it has gotten to the point that too often we are taking care of our mother.
We need our mom!
My mom says it’s time for her pain to be her strength no matter how difficult or scary it might be. As she deals with so much, it truly amazes me to see how strong and loving of a mother I am blessed to have, I am extremely grateful for her.
Please don’t let our smiles fool you, we are still dealing with many financial issues to get the right treatment for my family, but we continue to rely on our faith to continue enduring. The night my mom found out she was nominated for such a generous treatment she was truly overjoyed with hope, despite the extremely hard days or should I say years she has had.
I speak on behalf of my awesome mom and my sister when I say, Thank you all so much for all the love and willing support! These funds would be of so much help no matter how small. Thank you!!
