My daughter is very sick

My beautiful, intelligent, amazing daughter, Cassie has been fighting CRPS for 8 years & fibromyalgia for 4 years. On her birthday, April 25th, she went to the movies with her boyfriend. Though there was no warning, the movie had a lot of flashing light scenes. It caused her to have a full blown seizure. After the seizure, she lost her ability to speak properly & she believed she was going to die, or minimally, have full blown brain damage. Now, a week later, she still is struggling to speak properly & has significant motor dysfunction that requires her to need assistance to walk to the bathroom or adjust herself in bed. This is her last week of her senior year of school & she is not able to attend, threatening her graduation & possibly her full academic scholarship for law school. She is a fighter & doesn’t give up easily but she feels she is losing this battle. She cannot afford doctors to treat her rare conditions & doctors that do specialize in CRPS are hard to come by. And now with her current condition, which may be focal seizures &/or brain damage, the outcome doesn’t look so great. Cassie cannot afford the medical tests, doctors & treatments she needs, even with the health insurance I have gotten her. As her mom, I can only afford her so much assistance as I am a preschool teacher. I ask you to please donate & help her get the help she needs. Please! PLEASE! She is losing the battle.
