Sherilyn's Healing Fund

A few weeks ago, Sherilyn developed a severe headache that just wouldn't go away, along with a feeling of weakness and nausea. She tried to keep seeing her clients (she is a counselor, trained in helping hurting people) but became too ill to do so. Then she experienced paralysis of first one side of her face, then the other. A rash broke out on her body and the fatigue became severe. 

In in the emergency room, she was diagnosed with a serious, debilitating case of Lymes Disease. Young doctors in training came from all over the hospital to see someone with classic advanced Lymes Disease.  The doctors gave Sherilyn a very guarded prognosis when they released her days later to go home with IV antibiotics. They told her that it would take months for her to recover enough to work. 

Sherilyn is resting at home, but the symptoms have not improved. Her weariness is profound. She needs the peace of mind that comes with knowing that her basic needs are met and she can relax and focus on healing instead of worrying about bills, medical and day to day living. 

Please join me in showing Sherilyn some of that same love and care that she has lavished on others. Let's circle the wagons around her and let her know there are many of us that value her and support her. All of the money raised will go to pay her medical bills and to help her with day to day expenses of medicine, food, utilities and rent until she is well enough to go back to work. 

Thank you for your generous heart!
