Since that first incident at work, Leah has had a significant increase in neurological symptoms, impairing her speech, thought processes, cognitive ability, memory, and motor skills. She now has irreversible muscle twitching and spasms, nonstop pain, rendering her unable to walk most days. She has had a total of 6 seizures, and is now starting epilepsy medication which she will most likely be on the rest of her life.
She recently had a head CT repeated which showed cerebral atrophy and white matter disease, an irregular EEG (brain wave monitoring, much like an EKG) and is awaiting the results of an MRI to check for suspected lesions on her brain due to her symptoms.
Her case has gotten so severe it has been immediately accepted by the leading Lyme literate doctor with the highest success rate of treatment, who normally has a very long waiting list.
Please help support her on her journey to better health before her symptoms worsen.
My dear friend Leah has been struggling with a number of illnesses for a few years now. After dealing with very unusual symptoms, her Doctors have just recently diagnosed her with Lymes disease. As you can imagine it is a very hard and very costly disease to treat, and she'll need to raise $121,440 just to treat the Lymes alone. This is not mentioning that she is dealing with a number of other health problems, Lupus being one of them. She was diagnosed 2 weeks ago with Lupus and Lymes all in the same appointment, which I can't even imagine how hard that was. My friend is going through a lot right now, that is saying the least, and knowing that if she doesn't treat it, she will only get worse. I saw her at a low today at work, when she passed out from all the stress she is enduring and was taken away by the ambulance becuase she may have suffered a seizure. Please help Leah get the medical attention she requires to get better and grow strong again so she can continue to shine the beautiful light she has.
I am currently unemployed so this is coming from some of the cushion that I'd been saving for months prior, but this is not putting any financial burden on me thanks to some wonderful grandparents. I really hope Leah can find positive treatment and the healthy transformation she is looking for.
