Raised by 189 people in 30 months

My name is Crystal. I have Sleroderma/ Severe Aggresive Systemic Sclerosis. Im a mother of two amazing boys, a devoted nurse for 11 years, and an artist. It's now been 3 years since I was diagnosed with this horrific disease. Scleroderma has taken a lot from me. The worst part is being so far away from my boys. It weighs so heavy on my heart. My boys and family have all been very supportive throughout all of this! 2017 was the worst year of my life, and at one point we didnt know if i would pull through it. Now its a brand new year and i am stronger mentally and physically than i have been since all this has started. My boys are my life, the very air I breathe. I plan to go back home to California to be with them in September. I've been trying to plan my travel expenses to make this happen, but I'm going to need some help reuniting with my boys. If you can please help me by sharing this with as many people as you can. Please, help me raise the funds to get back to my boys! Thankyou, so much to all of you, and God bless you!

Wow, insurance is saying that because I'm under the age of 65 my monthly supplemental is going to cost me 1,000 a month. How does someone afford that!

Your story touches my heart. My prayers go oyt to you. My 9 year old daughter is being treated for scleroderma too. They say hers is the linear kind. It is affecting her right arm, and so far thats all. Is your condition the systemic kind? I hope someday there is a cure...in the meantime, I will pray for you daily, just as I pray for my daughter.

Praying for you and your family! I wish I could do more but I know every dollar counts because I have had to raise funds for my medical condition as well and I wanted to pay it forward in some way. It is so difficult to be away from your children and I hope you can be reunited with them soon! Keep fighting! You are in our thoughts and prayers!!!

Hi, Crystal, I graduated from high school with Natalie Gonella, and got a Facebook post from her a couple of weeks ago telling your story. Every time I think of you and your family, I get a painful lump in my throat. You are beautiful, talented, and loving, as I can see by your posts. I just wish your funding would move faster toward your goal. You are on my mind every day. Thinking good thoughts and praying for a cure.

I'm wondering if a retirement facility might know of some way to get a discounted mobility scooter? Also, have you checked craigslist or ebay? I'm so sorry for your pain, I continue to pray for you. I did forward your story to everyone on my facebook (unfortunately, that's not a lot of people).

Hi Crystal. Blessings to you. Glad you're doing ok for now. While Maria and I continue to keep you in our daily prayers, we also arranged: (1) Mass intention said for your health, healing and recovery on July 20th at a Monastery of Cloistered Dominican Sisters at the Monastery of the Angels; and (2) perpetual prayers for you by the Sisters - that means never ending prayers. We're going to also be sending you a a small package to the TX address you gave us. God love you and keep you strong always. Love Uncle Richard and Aunt Maria.

I'm so glad you were able to enjoy some happiness over the holidays, albeit mixed with some bumps and bruises : o I dated a guy who had a sister with scleroderma. Although I never met her, he explained much of the disease to me and it broke my heart. She was younger than you but I believe it was the same severity. Seeing your video made it more clear to me. Too many people just do not know about it but I found it listed on the top 10 most painful diseases. I pray for you often. I was so sure I would win a $1m lottery so I could pay for your transplant. Obviously I didn't. But I'll try again next time. Hopefully I can help you someday soon.
