On December 23rd Annie tested positive for COVID.
A few days later she lost strength in her legs and found herself unable to walk unassisted. She was quickly admitted to the hospital where she was diagnosed with GBS (Guillain-Barre Syndrome).
GBS is a condition that is triggered by various infections where your immune system attacks your nerves, so she is in a lot of pain as it hurts to stand or walk due to the nerve damage.
Annie spent 5 days in the hospital and was able to go home in a wheelchair to start physical therapy which can take as long as 6 months or more to regain her mobility.
Being out of state at the time, Annie found herself out of her insurance’s network but in need of critical medical treatment leaving her with a self-pay bill over $150,000.
The treatment for GBS alone was $80,000.
Annie is a mother, wife, caretaker, and incredible human being. Many of us know her for her fight and journey bringing awareness to the difficult infertility and endometriosis trials she has already faced.
Please donate to Annie’s medical fund to help her family overcome this medical financial burden.
