Thank you very much for looking at this page in support of Madi who has been a dear friend since we studied together in 2009. Madi has a very serious condition called Lyme disease. Donations received are to assist Madi's treatment that she is having to undergo in Cyprus due to its unavailability in Australia. All funds raised will be delivered to Madi via go fund me for her medical bills so she can to get happy and healthy again!
Please read on to understand more .
As some of you may or may not know Madi has been unwell for a few years now since returning from America . Her whole body has been slowly failing her. Madi had been going from doctor to doctor (After doing some calculations Madi and her family have worked out she has been to 47 different doctors and specialists) spending thousands and even travelling interstate to doctors trying to get answers and getting no where. Then a couple of months ago after speaking to someone who had Lyme disease she finally sent her blood over to America to get tested and it came back positive. She finally had her answer!
Basically she was bitten by a tick when travelling in America and never even knew at the time, no doctors here could figure it out because our testing methods are sub standard. Alot of doctors here only believe Lyme disease exists in America and that's why she had to send her blood over there because we don't have enough resources in Aus. And because they don't believe to much about Lyme in Australia it's too difficult to get treatment here as nothing is covered on Medicare nor are doctors allowed to treat it, that's why she's had to go to cyprus for treatment. The treatment she is currently getting will cost upwards of 25k it is a combination of things but the main one is called ozone therapy via Iv that she gets everyday, it's where they put oxygenated saline into your blood that acts as a broad spectrum anti biotic, anti viral and parasitic etc. and then also ten pass- which is the most intense treatment It's where they take your blood out of your body, mix it with oxygen and then put it back into your body and repeat it ten times over! If this treatment doesn't fully cure her she will have to come back to AUS or try a different therapy like stem cell transplant or hyperthermia in Malaysia.
Madi's been dealing with this for a very long time and she's been so brave so let's be brave with her and give her the best support we can.
Getting any diagnosis and treatments so far have been $70k plus.
But it's not about the money as much as it is about the support of her loving family and friends. So any donations to help fund Madi's treatment would mean the world. Because no one should have to travel across the world to get proper medical treatment. Olivia xo
