Maia was diagnosed with strep throat4x. She had Scarlett fever then a bad case of rheumatic fever that attacked her joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. She had her Tonsils and adenoids out in Nov but it didn't help. The Strep already attacked her little body so badly she could not walk or use her hands. She has limited mobility, uses a wheelchair frequently and has a full week of Physical and Aqua therapies, Accupuncture, chiropractor , bloodwork, X-rays, mris, Ct scans and therapy for her now chronic pain syndrome diagnosis that will never go away. She will have to see a pedi pain management DR. as soon as we can find one within 8 hours. that will never go away. All those are out of pocket between 300-600 a week our copays and some not covered at all but they help her so much. Her meds run between 200-300 a month as well. She can only attend school for 4 hours a day before the pain and swelling take over. We've been to Shannon, cooks and Scottish Rite Rheumatology is next. None of which our insurance covers. We are over 12k in debt from going to pedi hospitals her Pedi recommended that they don't have here and it's not covered. I am most concerned about her meds and her every day per week treatments. They do help her but maxing out every credit card, selling whatever we can and My husband works 2 and 3 jobs and any other thing he can find to try to keep her treatments going. Caring for her is full time and I am disabeled with stage 3 renal disease myself. If you could find it in your hearts to help Maia who was once a kick ass athlete and avid horse rider get some sort of her life back by donating for her weekly treatments we would forever grateful to each and every 1 of you. God bless you and peace and white light to you all!!
