Please help my sister reach her goal of $5000.00 to make her medical trip to UCLA so that she can receive cutting edge treatment for her arteriovenous malformation (I know it’s a mouthful!) Taking this trip to California is to offer my sister hope that she may be able to return to the life she had before. Her AVM has been causing her to have seizures, migraines and even behavior/mood changes (she wasn’t fun to deal with before so imagine how she is now!) and oh yes there is that one little fact that she could possibly blow her AVM in that pretty little brain of hers = instantaneous death. ☹
All of these symptoms has left my sister unable to work and so we are waiting for her disability to go through…in the mean time we are just surviving and I’m hoping soon it won’t always be like this; I hope that next year this same time my sister will be thriving. Help me give her that fighting chance.
How about some background?! (You want to make sure I’m not some bum who’s going to run away to Vegas with your money!)
I am a broke pharmacy student other wise I would shell out the cash in a heartbeat! Each dollar raised gives us more and more hope to make this dream become a reality.
My sister has insurance but with hotel cost, airfare, and the basic cost that involve traveling to California it may as well be on the moon for us. So what am I asking from you, yes , YOU the one reading this.
I’m asking for you to help me take my sister to the moon and back!
I know, I know seriously another person asking for money, another handout? You don’t have a money tree growing in the back yard! (Unfortunately neither do I). I’m not asking for large sizable donations but whatever it is you think you could afford to give. If you cannot afford to donate; please say a little prayer for my sister and her family.
The last two years since her diagnoses in 2012 everyday has been fight; a simmering fire of disbelief, rebellion, denial, and a quiet acceptance of what long road may lie ahead for her and trying to come out the other side mentally, emotionally, and physically intact.
But what is really important here is the children! It’s ALWAYS ABOUT THE CHILDREN! I don’t want to have to raise those little rug rats; I don’t even know how to change a diaper, yes, I may be majoring in Pharmacy but they don’t teach you that in pharmacy school! These adorable little rug rats would prefer not to be orphans because quite honestly I don’t want them. She’s got three in total here people; a 17 year old, 16 year old and a little 1 year old. That’s a lot of orphaned kids…..just saying!
P.S. In the photo I'm the weird one on the right and she is the abnormally perfect looking one on the left.
Please guys donate and just say: "No to orphaned babies and mean short asian ladies!" Wait did that come out right???
Below are pictures of the rugrats!
