Laura has had her share of hardships. When her daughter was only 2 yo she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. 8 years later she passed away at age 10. During that time she also had to care for her son Emilio, who was diagnosed with autism. She did all this by herself and while also fighting lupus herself.
Two years ago she started getting horrible kidney infections. She was diagnosed with Lyme diseased in 2018. Since then she has visited a number of doctors who have all given her different answers but most of them have not been accurate.
All of this has led to a lot of money spent without a real effective treatment given.
This week she finally got a reasonable explanation from a new specialist. His diagnosed was Dolichocolon. Which is an abnormally long large intestine. This is the cause of most her infections and for which she needs surgery ASAP.
Her and her husband own a second hand store in Ensenada, Mexico. But with pandemic all the sales have gone down dramatically and they are barely making house payments and bills. Leaving them in debt with medical expenses plus the cost of the surgery which is $5,000 dlls.
We ask that you please help us to share this and if it is in your heart to donate we will greatly appreciate it!
Another typical night at the ER. At least one a week to administer antibiotics through IV.
