Help LuLu

Lu Watts Thibodeaux, a well-loved Mom, new Grandma, Daughter, Aunt and Sister was diagnosed with a rare disease called Sjogren's/Peripheral Neuropathy, which attacks her immune system and all of her organs, even paralyzing organs, and the effects can be fatal.  Lu lives day to day with unbearable pain and trouble with motor skills, and yet the smile never leaves her face.  She bravely confronts the news that each treatment that has been tried has not worked.  Lu has recently shown some success with a new chemo-therapy treatment that allows her to live in less pain, and have the freedom to perform day to day activities. It was one of the last resorts due to the exorbitant cost, even after insurance.  Her total treatment is over $167,000 every 14 weeks.  After insurance, Lu has a bill of $2200 to cover.  We are looking to help Lu to stay current with her out-of-pocket expenses so her treatment will continue in the time sensitive requirements to ensure its best success rate.  Without the funds to cover her expenses, Lu can no longer receive the treatments she needs.  Your donations will help Lu to get the medical care that she needs to live.
