Alyssa Medical Trip to the Mayo Clinic

Alyssa Chandonnet's Medical mystery journey.

As some of you know our family has been on a 6 Year journey on Alyssa's Medical health.
Started with Four different symptoms or issues:

Migraine Headaches: This has being now controlled by Migraine medicine.

Ovarian Cyst: She has had 2 operations to have this removed. This is due to the ovary was twisted, loss of blood circulation and if not operated on, could have lost the ovary. Now pretty much controlled by medicine.

Adhesions: She has had two operations to remove these. First one was wrapped around her colon and attached to her small intestine. The second was attached to her ovary. This was due to the various operations she has had.

Lastly is abdominal pain in the lower stomach area. First they thought it was Cohn's Disease. Later changed to IBS. She is on medicine for this and seems too been under control, except when she eats something that doesn't agree with her stomach.
But still she has abdominal pain. She can tell when it's her IBS or Ovaries by were the pain is located at. But this pain is different.

So after 6 years to tracking and seeing different specialist here in Fort Worth and in and out of various Emergency rooms. Our GI Doctor and Primary doctor's recommendation is the Mayo Clinic. So we have been referred to the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, AZ.

By the grace of god, this referral has been approved by our medical insurance. So that pays for all the medical issues. But now I have to come with paying for the Transportation cost to and from Phoenix. And the cost of lodging. Average stay is 5 days.

So now I have to let go of my pride and ask all of you for help with these expenses. If you can find it in your heart to donate to our family to help us cover this cost, our family would deeply appreciate your assistance. No matter how big or how small.
Hopefully this trip will help us find the answers needed to bring this wonderful young lady to full health so that she can start having a normal life. And may the Lord bring you all his blessings.
