Melissa's Medical Bill Fund

My sister in law has been diagnosed with Lupus which is now strongly effecting her kidneys. For the last four years she has seen specialist including rheumatologist, cardiologist, pulmanologist, nephrologist, hematologist, and neurologist.  Her Lupus is now effecting her entire body, head to toe. Her doctors first priority now is to stabilize her kidneys. In order to do so, she will be receiving blood transfusions which will come from over 1,000 donors to give her one treatment. Her treatments will be for 6 hours a day and will be 900/day (out of pocket, after insurance).  Based on her biopsy results, she will be receiving strong medicines including chemotherapy for 6 months. 
The money raised will go towards Melissa's past and future medical bills and will relieve some of her stress.  As you may or may not know, stress is a huge trigger for lupus flair ups.
