Rochelle Lenz medical nightmare

If you know Rochelle she is the sweetest person in the world and also one of the sickest. Rochelle has been battling type 1 diabetes for most of her life and has been living a nightmare for the last few years. She is currently in stage 4 kidney failure and will likely go on dialysis or need a transplant soon. She also suffers from gastroparesis, a condition where her body can to digest food, retinopathy which is costing her vision and she requires monthly retina shots and severe neuropathy throughout her body. Since January of 2017 she's spent over days 90 in the hospital, a total of 5 weeks in the ICU and numerous visits to our home by 911 ambulance. We recently moved back home to Montana to be closer to family. 3 weeks ago she was life flighted from Anaconda to Missoula which cost over $25,000. She currently has over $200,000 in medical debt. Any donations she receives will be used towards travel expenses to Missoula for monthly appointments, medical supplies and costs. I knowRochelle hates having people know her problems but the costs and the disease are more than one person can handle at this point.

Thanks for listening to her story
