David's Treatment

32559862_1535639470265136_r.jpeg32559862_1535639490619147_r.jpegNine years ago David came down with a mysterious stomach ailment that affected him systemically. This loving father, husband, and veteran of the U.S. Army found himself in pain throughout his body that was at times intolerable. He spent a lot of time in and out of the hospital searching for answers and relief for the collection of terrible symptoms plaguing him, including debilitating fatigue, skin issues, blood pressure and heart rate spikes, brain fog and difficulty eating most foods.

      Despite these and many other issues including rapid weight loss, he continued to work hard in construction to provide for his family. He became so obsessed with his search for answers that his research led him to pursue a career in the medical field. He is now a registered nurse, an accomplishment that is not easy for a healthy person let alone someone with such a limiting illness.

   After nine long years, over 20 doctors and GI specialists, and a number of radical treatment methods his disease has only gotten worse. However, there is hope. He has found a doctor that is offering David a chance at getting his life back. These treatments are not without their cost and after all this time, the financial burden has taken its toll on this blue collar family. Please consider donating. However small the amount, it is greatly appreciated and will be of great help to David.

Thank you.
