Karen Elaine's Medical/Living Fund

Hello family, friends, and all loved ones...All her life Karen Elaine has preached a spirit of gratitude and giving. It has been her life mission and her vision for her brain child "Gratitude Power". Now at this time her family is asking for help in return. The giving, grace, and gratitude that Karen Elaine has shown to so many other in her life she now needs.

For the past year Karen Elaine has been battling serious illness and health issues and on March 18, 2017 her diagnosis reach its apex as she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cario-Renal Syndorme (CRS) which is a joint failure of the heart and the kidneys. Treatment for CRS is very sensititve because most heart mediciations affect the kidneys and most kidney treatments affect the heart. Very few medications can strengthen or stablize both at the same time.

She will need to begin medical treatment immediately in order to fight this disease and prolong her life. But treatment and medication for this type of syndrome is very expensive as well as housing, diet, and other misc expenses to help make Karen Elaine as comfortable as possible as we all fight this disease with her.

Karen Elaine is a mother, sister, wife, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and friend. And she needs our support.


Our goal right now is to spread the word and raise $100,000 for all eminent upcoming medical and living expenses. We ask that you make a donation and show "the power of gratitude" that Karen Elaine has preached for so many years. Let's show her that her vision for gratitude is one that shines bright in her time of need.

No amount is too small and you can give/donate as many times as you like and this will be an ongoing campaign.

We want to thank everyone for their time and consideration and spreading the word to help this amazing women!!

In Gratitude,
From Her Family
