Rebecca's Medical Trip

Donation protected
Since being diagnosed with Advanced Late Stage Lyme Disease in March 2013 followed by a Cancer diagnosis in May 2013 I have steadily been fighting for my health through a variety of resources. In March 2014 I was blessed to finally find appropriate and wonderful medical care and have started to see my body respond to aggressive integrative treatment. Through the use of strong antibiotics, alternative medicine, and a variety of treatments I have started to reclaim (slowly) step by step my health. Due to the strength of oral antibiotics being too strong for my fragile digestive system at this stage I began an intense course of IM shots that I started in California in June. While I was out in California the plan changed from a particular course of shots to a different course which became financial taxing over the summer, but the Lord has continued to provide each step of the way and we rejoice that I was able to complete the first round of treatment. 

We received news that the next round of treatment will need to be sooner than expected and I will need to be in California for PICC Line Surgery the third week of October and will be monitored in California for several days as we try new IV medication. Due to the serious nature of this treatment my mom and I will be flying out and staying a week so that I can be properly watched under medical care to ensure that I do not develop any anaphylactic reactions or serious complications. The cost of this trip is quite expensive and we are praying that all of the funds that are needed will be provided for. I have "changed" this specific "go fund me" page to prayerfully and hopefully offset some of the funds that are needed for this trip. Thank you so much for all of your love and support throughout this entire journey.
