Nichol's Battle Against Meningitis

My family is asking for you to look into your hearts for a donation of any kind to aid my sister during her recovery process as she has been bedridden since 12/16 with Brain Meningitis in a hospital located in Ecuador.

Nichol had journeyed(alone) to Ecuador with a passion to help the less fortunate through Yoga, Meditation, and Essential Oils as she is a certified yoga instructor. Nichol also has a bachelors degree from the Academy of Arts of San Francisco, a minor in Spanish and has worked with children of special needs.

It is difficult to say exactly how much help Nichol will be needing as she does not have health insurance. The doctors/ specialists in Ecuador anticipate a 6 month recovery period. During this time Nichol will need aid with basic expenses as well as transportation and medical costs.

Funds will primarily be applied to cover necessary in-hospital and post-discharge costs including medications, medical supplies, complimentary/ alternative medicine, and nutrition support. Any additional donations will be put toward travel and international communication expenses.

It is very likely that an immediate family member will need to fly out to Ecuador in order to assist in the recovery process from the disease once discharged from the hospital, if not sooner!

Here is a link of the average cost of living in Ecuador:

Once Nichol is able to function on her own we should have a better idea of exactly what she will need.

Our family thanks you in advance for your donation and asks that you like & share this post even if you cannot afford a donation at this time.

God Bless!
--- and as Nichol would say "Love and Light!"
