Dysautonomia Hope

Cherise, my daughter is a sweet 16 year old young girl, who has recently been diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic with Edlers Danlos Syndrome, causing Dysautonomia, the invisible illness. Dysautonomia refers to a disorder of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). ANS is a part of the nervous system that controls involuntary functions in the body, such as heartbeat, widening or narrowing of the blood vessels, breathing, body temperature control, pupil dilation, and digestion, amongst others. When something goes wrong in this system, it can cause serious problems and pain.

With the support and prayers of many we were able to go to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota where we received answers! They were willing to work with us and set up a payment plan for the balance of the bill and gave doctors in california recommendations on follow up. However they recommend we go back for a 3 week program costing $35,000. to reboot her autonomic nervous system.

Thank you in advance for your support and prayers!
With all our love Renee & Cherise
