Emergency Treatment for Jennifer

Thank you for taking the time to read this. My sister, Jennifer, has not been feeling well for an extended period of time and decided to traveled to India in October to persue more traditional medical treatments in an attempt to clear her system of any root toxins. However, upon arrival to India, her condition worsened very quickly and she was rushed into a local hospital for an emergency blood transfusion due to continued hemorrhaging which dropped her hemoglobin levels to a 2.7. (Yes, you read that right). She is severely anemic from continued hemorrhaging from a large fibroid in her uterus.

After being somewhat stabilized after the first transfusion, her condition has unfortunately not improved and she has had 2 more transfusions in a few short weeks, including last night after losing consciousness and being carried by locals to the hospital. She needs more.

Her condition requires surgery in India to stop the hemorrhaging so she is able to return to the States, at a minimum. Currently, her condition does not allow her to make the return as per the doctors there.

We need to raise a minimum of $5000 to pay for more transfusions, surgery, food and her stay there since she has had to spend all her savings on her prior hospitalizations. Anything helps and nothing is too small.

Thank you for reading. I encourage you to share and ask any questions you may have. We have been fortunate to have communication with the American Consulate stationed in Chennai, India to keep us abreast of her hospital stays and what we can do to make sure the funds get safely to her through the consulate trust.
