Kristen was recently diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia, a condition where her immune system is attacking her bone marrow which is causing it to stop producing blood cells. She is getting ATG treatments to suppress her immune system since a bone marrow transplant is currently not an option. Through the sickness and pain, she has been an inspiration in her positive attitude and sense of humor.
Since Kristen's Mom died of breast cancer when she was 15, she has been dedicated to serving others in need. She has worked doing in home care for the elderly and currently works as an EMT. We know that God is the Great Physician and can bring her back to full health to continue to help people.
After multiple ER visits, hospital admissions and blood and platelet transfusions, the bills are mounting and she needs help. Kristen also lives on her own. Her Dr.'s say she may not be able to return to work for 6-8 months.
Kristen's 22 birthday and the 7th anniversary of losing her Mom are right around the corner and we're hoping to show her tons of love, prayers and support. Thank you to each and every person that has been praying for her throughout this journey!
