Defeat the Denial for Morgan

Would you like to help our friend Morgan? 
Morgan contracted Lyme disease and its complications in 2014.  As a straight A student, attending high school, her life changed dramatically because of Lyme and its insidious quirks. She has missed two years of being in school.  She is now tutored at home and working hard to complete her Senior year.                                                                                                  Lyme disease has affected her comprehension and ability to read and write. Because of the effects on her autononic system she requires 2 liters of IV fluids each day to keep her resting heart rate from accelerating to over 160 . Recently her health has been improving due to the antibiotic Ceftriaxone. Morgan has been able to get out of bed more often and does not need her wheelchair so much when she is out of the house. Her reading and writing ability is returning.  Good news, right?  Except CIGNA insurance has decided that 28 days of improvement is all they will allow. April 5th was Morgan's last dose of this life changing antibiotic. The family is trying to reverse that denial of continued treatment. Morgan's doctor has even sent information on the success  of longer treatment of Lyme to the CIGNA gate keepers.  That battle will take time.
Would you please consider donating to the cost of Morgan's antibiotic, so she can keep taking it and improving?  The cost of Ceftriaxone is over $100 a day.  Mom and Dad are looking into acquiring it at a lower cost in another state.
Thank you so much for helping out this wonderful family.
