Medical Treatment Needed

I have been undergoing medical treatment for Hashimotos (a autoimmune disease) for over two 1/2 years now and there have been many complications, difficulty in eating and gaining weight (went from 130 pounds to 98) lost 40% of my body mass, pain, extreme fatigue and other various symptoms.

In addition to treating my Hashimotos, I recently got back some test results confirming I also have systemic mycosis, a fungus infection, and yes about 95% of people have a common form of fungi, I also have a rare form that only 10% of population ever contract. Each drop of my blood is infected and when the toxins from this fungus are released into my blood stream it creates havoc on the body but also effecting one's nervous system which can move along to one's brain if left untreated. So not something to take lightly and is believed to be the source of my weakened immune system and hence being vulnerable to other such illnesses like the autoimmune disease Hashimotos that I have.

Months back I was introduced to a doctor who specializes in certain diseases/illnesses including mine and is the only one I have met who has as many years experience, the confidence and the treatment necessary in getting me back to better health. I have traveled to Budapest Hungary for this treatment which is scheduled to take up to six weeks.

I'm starting my 5th week of treatment and it has definitely been the right thing to do as it helps boost one's immune system. In addition I need to get some medicines to address this systemic mycosis, some additional tests are required as my treatment plan has changed a bit since my arrival.

I have been in the Educational field for over 12 years, which I taught Elementary school for many of those years, really enjoyed and hope to do again. I've been unable to work because of this sickness which has made life pretty challenging. With all the medical expenses involved over these past years we have exhausted what available finances we have.

I was able to purchase the ticket to Hungary from other donations I have received. And would be great-full to reach 100% of my goal so I can receive all the medical treatment that is required. And back to participating and enjoying life again.


My husband and our two children are very interested in seeing me get this treatment and recover and return home healthy. But to do this, we are needing help. We thank you for all your support, kind thoughts, prayers.

Kindests Regards,
