Tamatha (Rowe) Simons Medical Fund

PLEASE BE ADVISED, EVERY DOLLAR RAISED IN THIS CAMPAIGN WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE TAMATHA ROWE-SIMONS FAMILY AND ANY FUNDS BEYOND THE FAMILY’S NEEDS WOULD GO TO LYME DISEASE RESEARCH.

Hello, we are in urgent need of your assistance.
Tamatha, Eddie and Carsten have been long-time members of Crossings Community Church as well as Tamatha's extended family.
Have you, or someone you know, been in a situation where you have planned for the “unexpected”, the things life throws at us, only to find that your planning did not do enough? Your health insurance will not cover the expenses you have incurred in the continuing search for what the illness is that has made you too weak to work at the career you studied so hard for, and love so dearly? Your expenses mount as the Doctors try to find the answer to “what is wrong”?

That is the situation that Tamatha Rowe-Simons, and her family find themselves. Eddie is a semi-retired, part-time employee of Mid America Christian University in the Community Relations area. Carsten is a sixth grader at Crossings Christian School, involved in music, Boy Scouts, and computers, who is really missing his best friend, his Mom. Since November 21, 2019 with the first ambulance ride to the hospital Emergency Room, Tamatha’s team of doctors, including, Internists, Neurologists, Endocrinologists, Cardiologists, her Primary Care physician, and other health care providers have searched for the source of her illness that has require multiple Emergency Room visits, multiple MRI’s, multiple CT Scans, numerous blood and specimen tests. After three months in early February, Tamatha was diagnosed with E. Coli and Lyme Disease. Tamatha will most likely need to leave the state for treatment of Lyme Disease. As to date, the medical bills have amounted to over $16,000. Envita, a specialized Lyme Disease treatment center in Scottsdale, Arizona, integrates the most modern and effective conventional care and alternative treatment options. Envita has established this unique infrastructure with unparalleled healing through many years of hard work and prayer. The expense of this treatment can cost between $45,000 - $85,000.

It is with this information that we are asking you to consider the following. Those of you who are self employed know that YOU are the business. If you cannot work, your income suffers greatly. People who want and need your services will be patient for a while but they cannot wait indefinitely for your health to allow you to return. Picture for yourself:

- You are suffering from an illness, and for a long period of time unaware of the cause .

- You are self employed and cannot work helping other people feel better, and do not know when you will be able to return to work.

- Your financial responsibilities, after your health insurance has paid its portion, are debt in the tens of thousands of dollars and growing.

- Your savings and emergency funds are quickly dwindling.

- The stress and anxiety you constantly feel makes sleep and rest next to impossible.

- You are worried and scared of what the future holds, making it even harder for your body to fight.

What would YOU do? Call out to God for mercy and healing? Maybe humble yourself and ask others to help? That is what our family is doing. Pray to God for healing and asking for your help in these ways:

- First, and foremost. IF, you are a praying person, will you pray for God’s healing touch for Tamatha?

- IF, you are financially able to assist in any way, please give to this GoFundMe account.

- IF, you feel lead to share this request with your friends and family, please do so.

Those of you who know this family know how hard it is to reach out to ask for your help. Please know we are grateful for prayers and concern. We look forward to celebrating Tamatha’s full restoration in the near future.

Thank you, again, for your prayers and support.

Thankfully,

The Simons Family
