Please help Breana overcome POTS

Hi, this is Breana. She just turned 18 and suffers from POTS. She was first diagnosed with it 03/2010 after she blacked out while getting ready for school. She has spent most of her high school years at home with a homebound teacher.

POTS has made it difficult and at times impossible for her to function in everyday activities. She lost her job due to not being able to work the hours and tasks mandated. This illness has robbed her of a teenager's normal life with friends and activities, as well as school functions.

We have been at All Children's Hospital several times and she see's a Neurologist, Cardiologist and Gastrointestinologist. Breana has tried everything available in terms of medicine, and nothing is working. She is severally allergic to many of the common medications given to POTS patients.

More recently Breana is becoming depressed as this illness is keeping her from life. We are hoping and praying to be able to go to the POTS Treatment Center in Dallas, TX. The funds raised will enable us to travel to Texas ($1000 airfare plus food) and pay for the treatment ($5000). With your help and God's will, she will be able to get the treatment needed to live a somewhat normal life again. Her goals are to graduate high school and walk with her class, attend college and be able to live on her own someday. For more information on this center, please visit

Thank you for your prayers and taking the time to read this.
