Donations for Mari's Illness

In 2008 my mom was diagnosed with LUPUS which is an auto immune disease. Auto immune diseases attack healthy organs and in her case, her liver was attacked. She was then diagnosed with Autoimmune Hepatitis and cirrhosis of the liver. She has had several biopsies and surgeries. She has bleeding veins on her esophagus, which causes severe anemia. To control this, rubber bands are placed where the bleeding occurs every few months. She has had several iron transfusions and different symptoms every day that she has to deal with including depression and anxiety due to all of the illnesses. She also has Raynaud's, where her fingers and toes turn a dark purple due to low oxygen, which causes them to become numb making it hard to walk and use her hands at times. Her doctor has taken her out of work for over the past two years making it hard for her to make ends meet. We are asking for a little bit of help with her medical bills and loans. Thank you so much in advance, you have no idea how much it means to us!!
