Ann Ribaudo

Many of you know my best friend of 30 years, Ann Ribaudo.  She has been diagnosed with this autoimmune disorder almost one year ago, and has not been able to work since.

Because of this disorder, she is unable to walk on her own, see clearly, speak correctly and needs assistance in just about everything.

Her latest relapse brought her back to the hospital on January 23 and she is currently there in ICU, where she is receiving plasma exchanges and also had a brain lesion biopsy.  We are all hoping she will be moved to a floor with physical therapy.  That move would be a step in the right direction for her health.  

Many of you do not know that her husband and one son are also disabled.  

Please help if you can, they really do need all of the help they can get.

If you know her, please share this page.

The best thing for her right now is your support and to have awareness of this condition.
