Ashley’s Fight

I just wanted to provide an update for those who have asked about ashley. a few months ago ashley was having some health  issues that were not accurately diagnosed. A few weeks ago her health declined rapidly to what we now know to be, an auto immune disease lupus. after 4 hospital visits she was finally admitted to sunnybrook with an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. The doctors however were not prepared for her severe raynauds, and subsequently transferred her to Toronto general to be admitted into the icu as well as try hyperbaric chamber oxygen treatment. This life long disease has had a signifiant impact on ashley’s mobility, and ultimately her ability to work in the near future. As many of you know ashley runs an overnight and day summer camp and being hospitalized over the last few weeks has severely impacted her ability to run her business and ultimately pursue her passion. As of result of the lupus and severe raynauds, ashley is on a number of medications including immuno surprenants and vascular dialators which are extremely expensive. Because ashley is self employed she doesn’t have a drug plan and her current medication expenses are almost $1300 a month. For those of you who know ashley you know how much she does for the community, her family, friends and even those she does not know well. I can genuinely say ashley is a person who would give someone the shirt off her back even if it was the only one she had. 

I would love to take this opportunity to show ashley how much we appreciate her and raise some funds to help at least cover her medication for the next few months, until she can get back on her feet (no pun intended) 

Anything will help and I want to thank everyone in advance for your donations, or just the kind messages to ashley and especially all her friends and family who have showed support and stuck by her side through this time, is really does go noticed and we are wishing her a fast and calm recovery !! 

Lots of love, 

Alyssa (Ashley’s sister)
