#EsclerosisMúltiple #DíaMundialEM #BringingUsCloser
Hi, my name is Rafael Adrian Herrera, and I am Venezuelan, resident in Caracas, and I have Multiple Sclerosis.
MS is a disease in which the immune system attacks the nervous system. It's progress a progressive, incurable and a neurological disorder or by its nickname “The Invisible Disease.”
Due to the humanitarian crisis that we experience in my country (Venezuela), it has been challenging to acquire the medicines to my treatment, basically there is no way to find them here. I have almost 4 year not taking any of them, to the point that I am not able for moments to coordinate movements, maintaining balance, alterations of sleep plus the constant pain.
The medication that I need for only one year would will cost me approx. $30.000 (Thirty thousand dollars), and I need to buy it in another country like USA or Europe increasing the costs extremely. Also, is difficult to get employment due to my health condition, adding the extreme crisis that we are undergoing in Venezuela.
Part of my treatments are:
Weekly injection of interferon Beta 1A (Known as AVONEX)
Also, is required to have a minimum of two MRI’s per year.
Unfortunately, this unhealthy outlook has forced me to ask for help from people of good will and potential donors, who can provide me with funds to buy my medications.
If you would like to contribute to my efforts, please be kind to donate through GOFUNDME. COM
God bless you and your families.
Thank you for all your prayers and blessings.
