On June 23, 2022 our dear friend, Jessica Lala, was diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). This came as a huge shock to her, her husband, and four children. Currently, there's no known cure for ALS. However, there is a new, groundbreaking stem cell treatment! This will saturate the body with fresh cells to rebuild Jessica's body!
She needs to raise an incredible amount of money for this treatment. We need your help to save Jessica's life!
While the Lalas have health insurance, it will not contribute to the cost of this stem cell treatment - meaning they need to pay everything out-of-pocket :( So, we need your help.
Jessica receiving this treatment will help her and the hundreds of thousands of ALS patients that will come after her. So every dollar you donate counts that much more!!!
And here's how this all came to be...
A friend of Jessica’s received a message from the Lord for Jessica to read Psalm 27, that there is a miracle at work, and to call a man in Anaheim who is connected with doctors who may be able to help. So, Jessica prayed and waited for the Lord to lead her to call this man. After spending a day in the hospital for a suspected blood clot in her brain (after a spinal tap for her ALS), Jessica was instructed by her doctor to lay down for the next two days to rest and recover. While Jessica was in bed resting, she took a nap and woke up suddenly and felt called by the Lord to call the man her friend had told her about. So, she did.
This man works with doctors that developed a new form of stem cell treatment with incredible results! He informed Jessica that “We are not treating symptoms; we are curing illness and disease.” He also told Jessica that this treatment would be $80,000 (and the doctors are giving a very gracious $20,000 discount for the first treatment).
Meanwhile, Jessica’s husband, Jesse, got a voicemail from their neighbor whose client knows doctors that work with stem cell treatments. They discovered that this was the same man that Jessica had just talked to on the phone minutes earlier. It was in this moment that Jessica knew that the Lord was confirming this was the right treatment for her.
We have been praying for a miracle! The research conducted through her treatment could potentially save thousands of other people with an ALS diagnosis. And that's why we're doing this. That's why we need your help.
With Jessica's permission, this campaign has been created to gather support for this stem cell treatment. Funds from this campaign will go directly to the Lala family to help with the cost of this treatment.
Jessica is one of the most geniune, kindest, encouraging, faithful, and inspiring humans you will ever meet. She is an incredible wife, mother, sister, friend, and colleague. Everyone who has ever met Jessica is changed because of her. She is an influential youth pastor who is pouring into the lives of the kids and young adults she is leading. She is a faithful and reliable friend. She is an incredible mother to her four boys. She is the most loving, caring, supportive, and appreciative wife I have ever met.
While a situation like this can sometimes seem like there is nothing you can do to help, donating, in whatever amount feels comfortable, will make an enormous difference for not only the Lalas but for future ALS patients who will be receiving this treatment.
Thank you for opening your heart and donating to this effort. Your support means the world to the Lala family!
Psalm 27:13 - 14
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
