Carla's MS Treatment Critical Need

My cousin, Carla, has suffered from Multiple Sclerosis for many years. This has taken a terrible toll on her health. She is now down to 88 pounds and becoming more disabled every day. She was scheduled to receive a stem cell treatment in Houston, but the FDA disallowed the procedure, not because of its medical effectiveness but because it's considered a "drug" and not a treatment which means years and years of drug trials, etc. She can get the same treatment in Mexico, but the cost is much greater. Each treatment is $20,000, and she needs 3 in quick succession. Of course, she lost health insurance long ago.

Carla is the mother of an active duty soldier and a college student. Her husband is in music ministry, and they are part of a Christian music group - "Redemption Trio." They have done all they can including selling their home to help pay for Carla's care. She has worked hard her entire life and, were she able, she would continue doing so. She needs OUR help now.

Please consider giving whatever you can to help Carla get the treatment she needs NOW before her health worsens even more. I know she is grateful for our help (as this was MY idea). And I want you to know that I am, too. Thank you so much for listening. It gives us hope that we can do this!
