For my Beautiful Sister..

Hello! My name is Shelby burger. My sisters name is Samantha Burger, she is 17 years old. She has Crohn's disease, Ulcerative colitis, and C diff. She has been in and out of the hospital for the past 6 months. It has caused her to loose in total 50 lbs, she is on steroids that has caused her face to get bigger. She has bruises on her arms from all the IVs. She can't even eat regular food half of the time. She physically can't go to school or can't go out with her friends and family without having a pain episode. She just missed out on her junior prom at school. At the beginning she was put on this medication that was working, she was able to go back to school and live normally, but the insurance company stopped covering it so she go worse again. She has been on multiple different medicines since then but none seem to work. Our mom is raising her and my two other siblings by herself with help from the family and some friends but the expenses are a lot. She travels back and forth from the hospital every day multiple times a day, making sure sam is okay and her other two children are fed and still make it to school everyday. It is a lot of stress to be a single mother but 100x more dealing with a child who is in constant pain and needs constant attention. I'm just asking for donations to help with medical costs, travel costs, and special things Samantha needs for her disease. We just want her to be able to live normally. Every blessing and every donations helps. Thank you!
