Hello Friends and Family,

My sister Shannon and nephew Brandon are in an emergency need of assistance.  Since September, my sister has been dealing with a lot pain, low energy, and a slew of other symptoms.  She has found out recently that her thyroid is enlarged (she has previously had benign cysts), her blood pressure is elevated, and her womb is loaded with fibroids, severe inflammation, and some other issues that she does not want me to disclose.  After ultrasounds and MRI's, the doctors are talking about the possibility of a hysterectomy and other medications.  Currently, she is waiting for another referral to get approved to see a specialist to see what all of the options are.  In addition, she is seeking the advice of natural healers and remedies including foods, herbs, oils, and body work.   One of her cysts is the size of a lemon and she is often in a lot of pain 2-3 weeks per month!  Toward the end of February, she caught a flu, and combined with all of her health issues was knocked under for more than three weeks.  Not only has she been doing her best to manage her health, but also the health of my epilpetic nephew (her 21 year old son) who moved in with her in late December just before suffering a stress-induced seizure.  Brandon lost his father almost three years ago and my sister is the only parent he has left.  She has been trying to help him and herself at the same time which has been very challenging combined with the pain she has been dealing with for so many months.  She has been doing private chef and energy healing work for years, but because of all of the pain she has been dealing with, it has been very challenging for her to work regularly and she is really needs help from some angels.  The physical illnesses have also caused depression and withdrawal.  I didn't even know she was sick until a couple of weeks ago when she got some scary test results. 

When I told her that I wanted to do a campaign for her, she said no.  She felt embarrassed and ashamed that she hasn't been able to take care of herself and her son in the way that she wishes, but she finally broke down.  My sister has worked very hard for so many years as a single mom...working multiple jobs, going to college, raising her son without child support, and all while still helping other people! She never stops helping people.  She is a woman that has taken in people in need into her home without hesitation or thought about where the money would come from.  That included me and my youngest girls, my cousin Heather, her son's best friend (for 2 years), and many others.  My sister has the best heart, loves so easily, and helps so many people.  I want to help her.  She needs it.  In the middle of all of this, she has to move out of her place this coming Sunday and all of her resources are spent.  With Brandon's college and health expenses, as well as her own, she needs support from people who know and love her.  We all need a little help sometimes.

I know that God is watching over my sister and that she will be healed from all of this very soon.   She needs to raise $5000 as soon as possible to cover rent, food, medicine, and bills that have been left unpaid for both herself and my nephew.  I am praying that these next tests and exams will say that a resolution for her illnesses are easy and less painful as they have been. 

If you are not able to financially bless my sister and nephew, please bless them with prayers and thoughts of perfect health and surround them with loving vibrations of healing.
