Dorothy's Medical Fund

$5,010 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 60 people in 34 months
My name is Yaw Brobbey. Dorothy is my younger sister. Dorothy, is by far the greatest sister any brother can ask for.  Caring and helpful, she has been a friend to those in need and a loving daughter and sister.

In January of 2016,  Dorothy was diagnosed with Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis and has been recieving treatment for it since then. She is expected to recover but her recovery process is one that will take time (10-12 months). Family and friends have shown a great deal of support for Dorothy as she continues to undergo treatment. 

We have set up this GoFundMe page to help lessen the financial difficulties that comes with treatment, travel expenses and lost wages. This fund will be used to cover medical cost of Dorothy's treatment and support for Dorothy's family. 

No  donation is small and no gesture is unappreciated. A prayer and words of hope will go a long way. We are highly thankful for the rush of support for Dorothy and her family. Being the older sibling in our family, I have seen Dorothy grow throughout the years and there is no limit to her aspirations. It means more than anything to see my sister recover and return to helping others as she aspires towards her dreams of being a Pediatric Doctor. Dorothy has always loved children and it has shown in her work ethics and involvement in the community. Her family and friends miss her dearly and we patiently wait for her to come home...

With this GoFundMe page, we hope this allows everyone an opportunity to show and direct their solace. Thank you for the support and encouragement.

May God bless you and your family! May the Lord cover you and heal every part of your body in ways we can never imagine. “He said, “If you will listen carefully to the LORD your God and do what he considers right, if you pay attention to his commands and obey all his laws, I will never make you suffer any of the diseases I made the Egyptians suffer, because I am the LORD, who heals you.”” ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭15:26‬ ‭ God bless again. Remember the Lord will always have your back. He will never leave you nor forsake you, that's a promise. Take care my love!!

Prayer is the most powerful and effective medicine against sickness or illness. It is also the most valuable gift that we give to those that we care for. Dorothy, that is my gift to you and your family. I know that this illness is just a passing phase, and with faith and prayer, you will conquer and overcome. There is not a day that goes by that we are all not thinking about you. Love you. xoxo
