Only a year ago Shelly was a super healthy and active lifestyle enthusiast. Last fall she developed some abnormal symptoms for someone only 26yrs old and who has been competing in fitness competitions their whole life. On New Year's Eve of this year, she went to the ER, where they immediately admitted her.
Since then she has gone through countless hospital stays, nurse visits, tests, scopes, and bone marrow biopsies-- including several different treatments all of which have not given her the chance to recover or get her life back. She is unable to eat, drink, or hardly sleep, and has been getting all her nutrition through a tube. She has lost 45lbs in only 5 months. The doctors have finally discovered the cause of her pain and decline, a very rare disease called Hypereosinophilic Syndrome.
Shelly has been unable to work throughout this entire ordeal. At the end of June she will have to pay for her health insurance, on top of the thousands of dollars worth of medical bills already incurred. All donations will be spent on her medical bills, insurance, and other expenses.
Any amount that can be given is a huge help for her and her family to be able to cope with this devastating turn of events. Prayers are also very much appreciated.
