She was diagnosed with Steven Johnson Syndrome and is fighting for her life. According to Mayo Clinic , Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a rare, serious disorder of your skin and mucous membranes. It's usually a reaction to a medication or an infection. Often, it begins with flu-like symptoms, followed by a painful red or purplish rash that spreads and blisters. Then the top layer of the affected skin dies, sheds and then heals.
Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a medical emergency that usually requires hospitalization. Treatment focuses on eliminating the underlying cause, controlling symptoms and minimizing complications as your skin regrows.
Recovery after Stevens-Johnson syndrome can take weeks to months, depending on the severity of your condition. If it was caused by a medication, you'll need to permanently avoid that drug and others closely related to it.
We are attempting to fundraise enough to allow her to stay in the treating facility. As costs are surpassing what our family can withstand, we ask for donations that will help cover Nataly’s treatment.
She is fighting for her life and we want to help her as much as we can. Nataly is a social communications major, her dream is to finish her studies and to start a foundation for homless animals. She loves everything related to the environment and cares deply about our planet.
If you are able to contribute just $1, know that it translates to double in Mexico and every amount adds up.
Thank you in advance.
The Robles and Ceballos family thank you for your support.
Her sister Adriana posts updates on Nataly's Instagram Nataly_Cero but they are in Spanish. She has been in a crystal room isolated for a few days and we are hoping she will regain strength soon.
Stevens-Johnson syndrome complications include:
Secondary skin infection (cellulitis). Cellulitis can lead to life-threatening complications, including sepsis.
Blood infection (sepsis). Sepsis occurs when bacteria from an infection enter your bloodstream and spread throughout your body. Sepsis is a rapidly progressing, life-threatening condition that can cause shock and organ failure.
Eye problems. The rash caused by Stevens-Johnson syndrome can lead to inflammation in your eyes. In mild cases, this may cause irritation and dry eyes. In severe cases, it can lead to extensive tissue damage and scarring that results in visual impairment and, rarely, blindness.
Lung involvement. The condition may lead to acute respiratory failure.
Permanent skin damage. When your skin grows back following Stevens-Johnson syndrome, it may have abnormal bumps and coloring. And you may have scars. Lasting skin problems may cause your hair to fall out, and your fingernails and toenails may not grow normally.
