Heidi has been dealing with the painful advanced effects of Lyme for nearly a decade. With her immune system literally attacking itself, there is little to nothing that can heal and fight the disease as long as it is active.
This disease poses a difficult recovery even when it is detected in the early stages. Unfortunately Heidi's parents contracted Lyme before she was born. The disease was then past down to Heidi and her brothers and remained undetected for decades. With the unexpected passing of her father the family was unknowingly embarking on a heavy journey.
Heidi is currently living in Idaho Falls with her Mother Jan. With her mother and only support progressively dealing with severe health, they are facing the world together with the little strength they can muster up each day.
With literally every part of her body shutting down, she faces nearly every pain we can imagine. Crippling arthritis has taken her ability to care for herself and her loving mother is facing the same challenges while tending to her daughter the best of her ability. With strict and laboring dieting needs, medical needs and physical care needs, Heidi and her mother are overwhelmed and afraid.
With credit cards maxed, extensive medical bills and no way to make an income the medical and general needs are getting more and more impossible to manage.
There is HOPE!
Heidi has finally found some answers that may give her a fighting chance. This is the break she has been waiting for!
There is a huge mountain ahead of Heidi and her family and with our help, they just may make it.
Heidi is currently seeking a doctor to preform a double mastectomy to remove breast implants and capsulated scar tissue. She recently found out the one of her implants has been leaking toxins into her system that putting her Lyme in overdrive. This is a major surgery and very risky with her given condition. With all of their resources expended, it is impossible for them to get the funds together to proceed with the next step.
This is a mandatory and urgent procedure that could be the missing link in her stubborn recovery. We hope and believe this will give her a chance of experiencing life and finally progress toward health.
With the passing of each day her climb is steeper and harder. So let's come together and carry some of the weight.
This is where we come in! This is a reach out to every able bodied, loving human. We are all here together and for each other. If we can each share a small amount of our renewable finances with Heidi and her family, it just may make the difference she can only dream about.
Please take a moment to be grateful for the beautiful life you experience. Please realize the beauty and joy you can bring to others by sharing a small part of yourself.
With the $20,000.00 we hope to transport Heidi to a capable doctor where she will undergo the surgery and few weeks of recovery. The funds will cover the travel costs and initial procedure expenses.
No donation is to small and we express deep gratitude knowing even awareness and love will assist in this journey.
Go HEIDI! We love you and believe in you!
