Kaylen Simpson, an amazing, kind and compassionate daughter, sister and friend found herself unexpectedly in the hospital last week. A few weeks ago she started feeling extremely weak, tired and overall crummy. The pain in her extremities and fatigue continued to get worse until it was necessary to hospitalize her.
The doctors have diagnosed her with Guillain-Barre syndrome, and she is now in stable condition in the ICU receiving plasma treatments. They are hopeful that her nerves will begin to repair themselves and she will begin the road to recovery. Kaylen is strong and a fighter, but it's going to take weeks if not months to bring her back to full health.
We are now asking you for two things - pray and give. Pray for healing, that her treatments will begin to provide relief to her body, and strength for family and friends who are caring for her. Kaylen will be facing medical bills and the loss of wages over the next few months, and the last thing we want her to worry about is money. Consider giving what you can so she can have peace of mind and focus on her recovery.
All money raised will go directly to Kaylen to pay for her medical expenses, and provide for her basic needs during this rough time. We can't wait for her to be cooking, dancing, singing and teaching again soon!
