My amazing daughter, Chelsea Briggen needs our help. She's suffered from Type 1 diabetes since she was 19 years old, which is a really mean and nasty disease... She's been tremendously successful at maintaining a great attitude and she takes stellar care of herself in terms of her diet and lifestyle.

Regardless of her efforts to remain as healthy as  possible, last night she was admitted into the hospital with DKA, or diabetic ketoacidosis as well as a mysterious infection somewhere in her little perfect body. She's stable this morning, her blood sugars are good but will have to stay in ICU for a number of days still to figure out the cause of the high white blood cells.

As her mother, I'm reaching out to my tribe for your financial support - which will go directly to her. She will have hospital bills, a reduced ability to work and she absolutely needs peace of mind and time to recover.

Can you help her?

 She is an amazing woman and I know that her health will benefit us all, as she lights up the world with her love and presence.

Thank you in advance!
Blessed be - Love Kyle

To everyone who has contributed, is following this campaign and has been sending loving, healing energy to my daughter, Chelsea Briggen... She's still working on recovery and has many great days, but also those "normal" really rough ones.
Type 1 diabetes is a gnarly disease and her recent visit to the hospital for DKA (which is often what kills people who suffer from Type 1, sending them into a coma) still remains an issue. It takes a few months to feel and be balanced and healthy for people who suffer with this.
This disease is NOT due to lifestyle, as Type 2 diabetes is, but an auto immune disease that literally kills the body's ability to produce insulin.
Chelsea is still struggling with an elevated heart rate and a very compromised immune system. The bills are coming in and she is working again, even though it's kinda hard to do much else. In order to maintain her health insurance, she must work at least 3 long shifts -

Today I'm asking that you continue to share this campaign with others, so the support she's received and continue, which really helps her get through this particular bump without too much financial stress ...

Please and thank you, dear friends... Blessings on this holiday season to all of you and THANK YOU for your love and continued care of my beloved daughter.

Today marks two weeks since we started this Go Fund Me campaign to help Chelsea. She is doing so much better... and I'm slowly working through the many thank you's I still have left to send...
We are almost 1/2 way to our goal, which is amazing!! Thank you all for your prayers for healing... and your generosity!! Please continue to share this campaign with others... The financial support affords Chelsea much needed time to recover and have less stress about the mountains of bills the hospital stay produced. Even though she pays for expensive health insurance, much isn't covered...
Thank you all... Blessed be.
