Please help the Unger family


27224786_1516831672.2092_funddescriptionHi everyone, I am asking for help for my sister Nancy’s family please. She is 33 and they have 5 children. Two years ago she woke up with half her face numb and couldn’t eat anything without throwing up for almost 2 months. She lost 20 lbs in 3 weeks. After that her arm became paralyzed, the doctors just said it was a pulled muscle but as time went on her entire right side became paralyzed. She was hospitalized for 5 weeks with high dosage steroids. She had to do therapy to learn how to use her arm and leg on the right side again. It took them about a year to diagnose her with NMO (this is an autoimmune disorder in which her immune system cells attack the optic nerves and the spinal cord but may also attack the brain. The damage to her nerves produce swelling, and inflammation that cause pain and loss of vision ; the damage to the spinal cord causes weakness or paralysis in the legs or arms, loss of sensation, and problems with bladder and bowel movement.) She was doing really good but last week she relapsed again and now she is numb from the waist down and isn’t able to do anything she has been hospitalized and probably will be for weeks. Her husband needs to be home because she is unable to be home and take care of the kids so we are asking for help anyone willing to donate please do so and if you are unable to we greatly appreciate all the prayers they are much needed. God bless you and thank you ❤️
