Help Christine Conquer COVID-19 complications

My beautiful friend Christine Thiele tested positive for COVID-19  on April 10,  after getting exposed at work as a nurse.  She quickly went downhill suffering the cytokine storm with blood clots in her legs & microclots in her left lung. They think now that is probably when she also had clots in her brain and the virus attacked her neurological system.  Her GI system & the inflammation in the small vessels throughout her body are attacking her connective tissue.  She also suffered from pancreatitis during the time of the cytokine storm too.  Mind you, she went through this alone, as she is single.  She is the strongest & bravest person I know! Now,  4 months later she is dealing with nausea/vomiting and absolutely no appetite. She feels like her body is a complete mess. Her right leg is severely painful, her hands have numbness and  tingling. She can't grasp anything & drops  things all the time.   It doesn't ever seem like it is ever going to go away.  She has "rapid eye movement" related to the brain  damage & memory issues. The brain damage has affected her balance & word finding, too. (Kind of like when someone has suffered a stroke.)  She is at her witts end with what this virus has done to her previously healthy body!  Christine’s employer denied workman’s comp, stating she couldn’t prove she contracted it at work.  They were refused masks and refused to let the employees bring their own. She has been on medical disability & was covered on insurance for her medical bills until last week, when she went to pick up a prescription and was told by pharmacy she is no longer covered by insurance.  Her employer terminated her insurance policy without informing her because her 12 weeks of disability was up with no certain date to return.   She started physical therapy for strengthening &  will soon needing to start cognitive therapy too.  Christine would never ask for help, but now she needs it.  She is only 51 years old, a very hard working nurse,  & has had to do everything herself.  Please help our dear friend with prayers & donation of any amount that you can!  She will be forever grateful.  We want to see her strong & healthy again!  Thank you in advance!
