Help Natasha Beat ALS!!
A past volunteer, active community member and humanitarian, our Natasha is now facing major health challenges.
Following a 4 year struggle with adrenal failure, Natasha was diagnosed with ALS, aka Lou Gehrig's Disease. Coupled with this a dx of Degenerative Disc Disease has added further complications. Although the ALS is slow progressive the issues are serious and causing major problems with sustaining her health. Having been physically active her entire life, she is now facing difficulties with simple everyday tasks between the two diagnosis.
As a self employed hairdresser in the demanding economic climate of Silicon Valley, she has been facing the challenge of maintaining her business while fighting her battle, primarily on her own. Unfortunately the physical aspect of her work has been rather taxing, forcing her to walk away from her passion for hair artistry and beloved clients this past August. Throughout all of this she has still found the time to lend a hand to others in need while reluctant to ask for assistance. (We had to twist her arm to agree to a fund.) Now it’s her turn.
On the bright side, statistically there's a15% chance of a misdiagnosis and, not only stabilization, but recovery! We've been researching thoroughly and have found the common denominators associated with those who continue to live a quality life. They include Integrative Medicine and state of the art devices, none of which are covered by insurance
Your donations will help with the purchase of:
*The AmpCoil - A device, similar to a Rhife Machine, which uses Tesla based technology within its programs. It has the ability to communicate with the body on a cellular level and possibly eradicate the virus Borrelia Burgdorferi, which has been connected to patients with MS, Parkinson's and ALS. It costs between 8-10k
*Spinal Decompression Therapy- Currently one of her best options to bring relief and will also allow her to stay strong for her battle against ALS. We have gone through one round but may need additional treatments. Each round of sessions approx 4-5k with additional cost for maintenance.
*A specific nutritional program consisting of fresh organic foods, supplements and high grade essential oils. Unfortunately cooking has been difficult due to having only one functional hand, which doesn't allow for cutting or slicing items so she's been partially relying on prepared food delivery services (Freshly, Daily Harvest, etc), which is costly.
*Household Assistance- As needed. Volunteers are welcome!
Although the diagnosis is bleak, having patients with ALS not only live long but beat it are not unheard of. And if anyone is going to do so, it’s this lady! But she needs your help. Let's get Natasha back up and running!!
Many, many thanks for taking the time to support our campaign :)
