Lillian has always lived with her head held high with 3 children of her own and contributing to raising a wonderful stepchild that the biological mom left behind without any support . Letting no obstacle stand in the way of Hard work and preserverance , Now she needs your help and support.
We learned this was due to the inability for the body to regulate its own Blood Pressure during sitting or standing .Prompting Emergency care and a Diagnosis that was devestating to the family in June 2014. After a first and second opinion from two well known Cardilogist Lillian is Diagnosed with a "Automic " Disorder . Labled as Nerocardiogenitic Synscope, with Orstatic Intolerance.
THE KEY IS FOR LILLAIN TO GET THE MEDICAL CARE SHE NEEDS TO MANAGE DAMAGE TO THE NERVES > SHE IS BEING REFFERED TO THE "CLEVELAND CLINIC".
(WE NEED HELP WITH THIS UNINSURED COST)
Prognosis for Autonomic Dysfunction
Damage to the nerves of the autonomic system is often not reversible. Some illnesses like Guillain-Barre may see significant recovery. Orthostatic hypotension responds to treatment, but there is an increased risk of stroke due to the sudden blood pressure changes. More general and severe conditions, such as multiple system atrophy, might have a life expectancy of six to ten years (Mayo Clinic, 2011).
THERE IS NO CURE ONLY MANAGEMENT AND WITH THE RIGHT CARE A PATIENT CAN LIVE FOR MANY YEARS >
Now we are aware this is a disabling condition . For those who may have questions. When your self employed Medical insurance is very expensive.
Lillians Spouse works full time therefore eliminating any help from the state Medicaid system . (Denied) for those who need it.
Lillian is curretly on a Beta Blocker and a life Altering Medication called Midorine . There is no genric substitution 250.00 a month .
This medication is used for certain patients who have symptoms of low blood pressure when standing. This condition is also known as orthostatic hypotension. Midodrine is used in people whose daily activities are severely affected by this condition, even after other treatments are used .
(Thank you Kroger Pharmacy in Dundee for calling corporate office to get this reduced. For it was much more expensive .)
(Thank you to Ohio Charity care for covering my 4 Cardiology visits.)
Next Challenge is Promedica in Michigan as at this moment there is $ 11,000 in outstanding medical bills for test . They have been difficult to work with. :(
Your help no matter how small would be sincerely appreciated . Please say a few prayers for this hard working family who is determined as they will continue to live in there modest home and make the best of what life has to offer.
