Help Krystal Fight Aplastic Anemia

My sister-in-law Krystal and her family are in need of help. She was recently diagnosed with aplastic anemia.  Essentially, it is an extremely rare and serious condition where your body stops producing red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Her blood count has been dangerously low caused by bone marrow failure. This disease has exceptionally lowered her quality of life. She is always exhausted, cannot focus, gets infections easier, and her body is covered in bruises. Worst of all is that she can barely keep up with her sweet little juju. She is currently in the ICU undergoing intensive chemo therapy to kill off the bad bone marrow cells, leaving her body depleted of ALL energy. While in ICU, this mama is not able to see her baby. Krystal has been admitted to the hospital for a total of 12 days so far to receive numerous blood and platelet transfusions as well as the chemo and she will need to stay another additional 2-4 weeks minimum after the chemo treatment.  Without the chemo therapy this is a death sentence. If the chemo therapy doesn’t work, the next step is a bone marrow transplant. She is currently taking a leave of absence from work and will not be returning in the foreseeable future due to the condition her body is in after the treatment. This disease could possibly keep her from working for up to an entire year. Although my sweet brother still is employed, he has only been able to work about half the hours he normally does because he is by her bedside keeping her company sun up to sun down everyday and supporting his wife with love and encouragement. The last thing her family should have to worry about right now is something as mundane as getting rent and utilities paid when her life is at risk. If there is anyway anyone would be able to help it would be so appreciated!! My family needs the help desperately and I know we can all rally together and come through for them. Please send prayers of healing for her. Thank you for taking the time to sympathize for this beautiful family who does not deserve this kind of struggle. You are all so appreciated and we are all very grateful for the community around us.
