Our friend Heli has been battling Lupus for over 2 years. It has attacked her body in multiple ways and levels. On top of this it has created other problems like Stiff Person Syndrome, Raynaud's Syndrome, Vasculitis, Anemia, Sjören's Syndrome, pleural effusions, pericarditis etc. Within the past 5 months itself she's been hospitalized for almost 50 days. She was just released from hospital Tuesday, August 8th. The doctors informed her that the disease is attacking her kidneys and we need to treat the disease with stronger medications and start a chemotherapy.
Heli is not one to ask for anything and has been extremely brave and never complains. Heli's spirit is infectious and she has one of the most genuine hearts ever given. She is very loving and kind. My family, friends and I have helped her through this tough journey. She has no family in the USA and has been working hard despite the disease to support herself.
But we need your help!
The disease has left her with medical bills and she hasn't been able to work anymore. Also the new treatments are going to be expensive and she needs them as soon as possible.
Please donate/ share as much as you can to help her get back on her feet and put this aggressive lupus in remission for a long time!
Any contribution you can make is highly appreciated.
Please keep Heli in your thoughts and prayers!
Thank you for your contribution, love and support!
