Help Kaitlyn beat Lyme's Disease

Kaitlyn was a normal healthy highly active young girl involved in soccer and other sports. She really liked and was very good at soccer so she joined a traveling soccer league. Countless hours were spent on grassy fields and parks. This is when we think she was bitten by a tick. A few years went by without any symptoms, then Kaitlyn's world began to change. Kaitlyn went from being a very happy and active teenager to a very sick home bound student. In Kaitlyn's words :
      (I use to picture my life growing up thinking I would have everything figured out and be doing what I wanted in life like going to college , hanging out with friends and traveling. I never for a moment thought I would be here at 20 years old fighting for my health. My days turned from hanging with my friends to hanging in Doctors offices, memories and time turned into what hospital stay happened at that time.  Since insurance does not cover Ozone Therapy, I never thought I would be here asking for help to be able to afford proper treatment to fight to get my life back.  Lyme's Disease also causes other issues like Fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, syncope, Pots syndrome, and other infections as well. My days are filled with extreme physical pain and weakness not able to even simply take care of myself most days. I was set up to start IV Ozone Therapy with a Picc line ( a Picc line is a catheter which is threaded through the vein until the end is near the heart. It makes it easier to get hooked up to the Ozone IV line over a period of time.) then I was told that it was not covered by insurance, I was beyond devastated. The one thing that could have given my life back was now out of my grasp. I feel hopeless and this is why I am here today asking to please just take a moment to hear my story and help me get my life back. Anything is much appreciated. God bless!)
     Ozone Therapy has been around since the 1950's and has proven to be a highly effective means of treating many diseases with little or no side effects. By using Ozone Therapy you are essentially boosting your natural immune system. Ozone Therapy suppresses infections by killing viruses, bacteria and yeast, especially those hard-to-treat resistant pathogens that can be found in chronic conditions such as Lyme's disease.   The therapy enhances your body's ability to increase its antioxidant capabilities and protection. The IV Ozone Therapy would run over 5 weeks and cost over 11,000 dollars. There are also maintenance treatments on a as needed basis. Thank you for taking the time to read about Kaitlyn's story and thank you for whatever you can do to help us raise the money for the treatment. Kaitlyn is not able to go out very often so she has turned her bedroom into a small zoo. She has 2  bearded dragons named Charlie and Nyla, a gecko lizard named Da Vinci, a guinea pig named Cali, many fish and probably other animals I have not seen yet. 

Take care and thank you!
