Please Help Verity Get Well

UPDATED 4/17/2014: Verity began experiencing symptoms of her illness over four years ago. Previously, Verity was healthy, active, an involved college student and scholarship-recipient, closing in on a long-desired degree in filmmaking. Following a period of unpredictable and disabling symptoms, she had to withdraw from college. Now Verity has tested positive for Lyme as well as chronic viral infections. She and her partner Kevin have been fighting for her health, but, when finances are already exhausted, this treatment is anticipated to cost $10,000-$20,000 a year for two years or longer. Meanwhile, she is unable to work or contribute to her household reliably. Further, her expectation of a strong recovery depends on starting this treatment as soon as possible."
Original post 12/24/12: My partner Verity has chronic digestive problems that began 3 years ago this coming May. She is a caring, intelligent, charismatic and loving person whose illness has prevented her from working, going to school and finishing her degree, as well as carrying on a normal, healthy life. Throughout her illness, I have been supporting both of us on my solitary income and savings, which in turn has now depleted my savings of $10,000. Month to month, as we face our monthly bills, rent and general expenses, it has become apparent that my income will not be sufficient enough to cover the medical treatment, tests, doctor's appointments, supplies and healthy food necessary to get Verity on the fast track to recovery.

Verity has always been the type of person who gives back to the community even when she has very little to offer. She is a caring, intelligent, charismatic and loving person whose illness has prevented her from working, attending college to finish her degree, and living a normal, healthy life. We are hoping that anyone who has the means to do so will reach into their pockets and help us out in our time of need. The amount of money needed for the immediate medical treatment track is approximately $5500, and an additional $3000 is needed for urgent car maintenance as well as other pressing household needs. We welcome any and all contributions that you can make to our cause.
