Avalon’s Kerrie may die w/o surgery

Dear friends — please click here to read this Avalon Forum thread:

Our Friend Kerrie Lea is hanging on for dear life: please do help

I am writing in request of support for our friend Kerrie Lea. She is a gifted healer with talents that are quite unique and powerful. More than this, I can't emphasize enough how truly loving and giving she is; how she shares her extraordinary abilities freely with others. Kerrie is modest to a fault, but believe me, she has helped many people in big ways, life-changing ways. I am the fortunate recipient of her good works, and my life hasn't been the same since, in the most profound ways. She did this without expectation of payment of any kind, for a greater good. It's my honor to step out now and help her however I can.

Back in 2010, Kerrie was in a serious accident where 75% of her right arm was separated from the joint. After six surgeries to repair and reconnect her arm, she found her body was rejecting the metal implanted. She has intense and constant pain. Her sleep is minimal. She hasn't been able to work or live a normal life since the accident.

And now her liver and kidneys are shutting down from the rejection of the metal. This is a gravely serious condition. The metal is toxic to her body, and has been poisoning her for six years. She has less than six months to live if something isn't done soon.

Until recently, we didn't know what that 'something' might be. In the past, Kerrie has done extensive research and followed leads, with eventual dead-ends and no hope. But now she has found someone outside the U.S. who will operate to remove the metal from her shoulder and insert a bio-inert carbon fiber implant. Insurance will not pay for this, and no surgeon in the U.S. does carbon fiber shoulder implants.

What she needs is money to travel to the doctor in Israel who (we fervently hope) will save her. And money for the operation. The doctor said, 'Just get here.”

Kerrie estimates she will need $10,000 to $20,000.

Here are Kerrie's words:

“In advance, I deeply thank you for your unconditional love and support. If you would be willing to send any amount, it will make a difference. I intend to pay this forward as soon as I regain my health to be of service to others like myself who are in need where current insurance is not helpful. Thank you also for sharing this message with others who may be willing to contribute.”
With Love and Deep Gratitude,

Kerrie would love to also send a snail mail thank you note if you send her your address.

Our heartfelt gratitude for any support you can give to this beautiful soul, a bright light in the world.

Marianne, and the whole Project Avalon Team
