Jessica's Journey

Hello family and friends,

Many of you know of my niece Jessica's miraculous battle for her life over the past several years.

Jessica suffers from RSD, a rare neurologic disorder that causes the brain to attack her nervous system. RSD is considered the most painful disease known to medicine and there is no cure.

5 years ago doctors in the US said she had only weeks left to live. Her last hope for survival was an experimental treatment- a medically induced ketamine coma, to shut down and restart her nervous system. It is not approved in the US and currently can only be performed in Monterrey Mexico.

And it worked- Jessica returned to us whole, healed and in remission from this horrifying disease. Watching her return to life after the coma was incredible, Jessica was reunited with her sisters and family, she returned to school where she was studying to become a physician assistant and she travelled around the country sharing her inspiring testimony of God's faithfulness in front of crowds as large as 25,000. She was finally regaining the healthy life she fought so hard to have.

Unfortunately, after being in remission for the past few years, Jessica is fighting this battle once again.

Multiple surgeries over the past year and a major sepsis infection caused RSD to once again attack her body and she has spent the past 5 months back in Monterrey fighting for her life in the ICU, undergoing another ketamine coma procedure to save her life.

She has now been released from the hospital but will need to spend the next several months in Monterrey to continue treatments with her medical team there to ensure she can have the best quality of life and recover once again.

Due to the experimental nature of this treatment, none of it is covered by insurance and as you can imagine, it has been financially devastating for the family, once again.

An incredible amount of love, support and prayers have always surrounded Jessica and our family throughout this journey. God is a big God who does big miracles and we believe Jessica's life will be restored once again... But we need your help to make it possible. Any donation is greatly appreciated. May God bless you all.
