Our friend and sister, Kristi (Dimples), struggles every minute of every day with the awful effects from a disease called RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy), also known as CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome). This disease causes many issues but the worst issue is the constant burning pain it causes. The pain is rated on the McGill pain scale above things like cancer, amputation and childbirth.

This disease began in her left foot after a minor injury, over time it has spread all the way up her left side, then down her right side and into some of her internal organs. She's been fighting this battle for over 10 years now. There's no cure for this terrible disease, but there are treatments that have shown to be successful in giving quality of life back to the person who suffers from it.
Dimples dreams about having the opportunity to try Ketamine Injection therapy because other people that she knows who also have this disease have had remarkable success with it. This treatment is not covered by the insurance companies and is beyond her reach financially. Each injection costs $750. A doctor who specializes in this treatment in Carrollton would like to start her on a 5 day trial with one injection daily, then if the results look promising.. give her additional injections as needed going forward.
Many people have gone into complete remission and were completely pain free after this treatment, others were pain free for several months and have to go back for an injection every few months. She knows that it is also possible that it won't help her for an extended period of time, but she has no other options at this point.
She is willing to try anything to get rid of the pain. She has been on many medications over the years including the most potent narcotic pain killers available, even taking several of these together never removed her pain completely so she went off all of them a couple years ago because she doesn't want to be addicted to them.
Please help us raise the funds needed to help our Dimples get the treatments she desperately needs.

We've all seen her suffer way too long. Wouldn't it be great to see her live free from the pain and live the quality life that she deserves?
