Help Fund Briana's Treatment for Erythromelalgia

We are requesting donations to help with medical expenses for our dear Briana, who is very much in need of your help. Earlier this year Briana was diagnosed with Erythromelalgia, a very rare disease, so rare that doctors she consulted in the Seattle area had not ever successfully treated a case. The disease manifests as burning, hot, painful feet--Briana, who has been a Yoga teacher for years, can now hardly walk, often cannot drive, has sleepless nights and is in constant pain. This is very challenging for Briana, who is a wife and the mother of two small girls, who also have their own health issues. 

Briana has just received an appointment at the Mayo Clinic in Minneapolis, a wonderful development as it is the only place successfully treating this rare condition and people usually wait a year to be seen. Unfortunately, her insurance does not cover any of the treatment there. We are fundraising to pay for her travel to the clinic for four days of tests and treatment as well as her medical and pharmacy bills. Any additional money raised will go towards her on-going medical expenses.
