My sister Dawn's Fight against Lyme

My sister has been ill with Lyme Disease for a very long time, unfortunately she was not diagonosed with any haste so she was unable to make a speedy recovery and is now in 3rd stage, chronic condition.    

There are other treatments she wants to pursue but the Lyme-literate doctors do not accept insurance.  She has been drained of finances trying to recover and medicate for over two years.  Just to maintain with doctors and medications in the area it is costing her over $5000 per month.  

These treatments that can help her are multi-faceted and involve numerous different strategies and probable hospitalization and/or travel to get to the out of state facilities.  

We are hoping to help her to obtain the funds to accomplish treatment and recovery before it is too late.  This disease has already affected her joints, heart, brain, eyes, lymphs, and others. She struggles every day to keep up with new arrising issues and it has become impossible.  She has gotten weaker and is starting to give up due to lack of funds and ability.  

Due to her chemical and electrical sensitivities she is forced to leave her home and move to a place that is immune-friendly... Chemical free as possible and electrically safe guarded. This will help her body's systems not break down as fast thus allowing it to be coaxed back to more normal functioning while not being around so many toxins that her body can't handle. 

Please help me to get her the help and recovery she so desperately needs. 

Sincerely,
Family and Friends of Dawn Kardasz
