My daughter, Kayla, is 28 years old, and has progressive multiple sclerosis (MS). She has had MS since she was 17 years old, and has been declining ever since. Her disease is advancing at an alarming rate, to the point where she is not only having trouble swallowing, but is losing her sight and ability to walk as well. She has tried both conventional and invasive treatment, which have been ineffective across the board. She undergoes plasma exchange therapy to manage her attacks, which require extended hospital stays. Unfortunately, even that is not helping her anymore, and now we are running out of options.
Currently, there is hematopoietic stem cell therapy for MS, which is still experimental, but has had promising results for people in her condition. Unfortunately, the cost of the treatment is prohibitive, and without it, Kayla may not see her 30th birthday. Although she has been denied the opportunity to take part in the only trial offered in America, the rest of the world has this treatment more readily available.
So I am reaching out, to ask you to help me keep my daughter alive, by donating any amount you are able.
This disease has robbed her of her youth- please, do not let it rob her of her life.
