Save My Sisters Eyes



My sister, Donnie Dours Sanches, was diagnosed several years ago with a thyroid problem and later with, Graves Disease, which was caused by the thyroid disease. She almost lost her eye sight and had to go through a lot of 1 hour IV steroid treatments several times a week as her eyes started protruding very bad. The muscles in her eyes were inflamed and once the swelling was down her eyes started retracting. However, she has had to wear prism glasses, can't drive at night and not much during the day. Donnie lives in northern California and her doctor that specializes in this type of eye illness is 5 hours away. She has had some true friends/coworkers that have taken the time to drive her to and from her appointments and we are all very thankful and grateful to them. 
Donnie was told in the beginning that she would need surgery and could possibly loose her eyesight and it was a 50/50 chance. After the swelling developed, surgery could not take place. She had an appointment this past Wednesday, 9/13/2017, and was told that she needs the surgery ASAP. She has developed 5 or so cataracts on one eye, glaucoma, nerve damage and some other things that I can't recall right now.
Without the surgery she most definitely could go blind and glasses at this point will not help her see any better.
I am setting up this account in hopes that I can raise enough money to help pay for a hotel room, food and any other expenses she may occur. She will have to stay in Santa Rosa, where the surgery will take place for a week or better.
So I am asking if there is any way possible you can donate to help with these expenses it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all for your consideration and may God bless you all!!!!
