My mom Robin who is only 58 has been fighting a mysterious disease going on 3 1/2yrs now. Her symptoms are flu like in addition to skin lesions all over her body, extreme fatigue, abnormal amount of weight loss, loss of appetite, hair and tooth loss and crawling and biting sensations from head to toe. Some of you reading this are familiar with the story of my mom's journey as this will be the 2nd go around in hopes of raising money for her rapid health decline. She was diagnosed by a doctor at the Chung Institute as having five or more parasites attacking her body inside and out. We began very expensive treatments in hopes that this would be the answer in getting her better but unfortunately her immune system is so weak that her body has been unresponsive to the medications. We have now had to go back to square one in our search to finding a doctor better suited for her condition that will give the care she so desperately needs. We have depleted our financial resources due to this lengthy process of trial and error and now we have another long journey of exhaustive research in trying to find someone to help us. Our mom Robin continues to grow more and more fragile by the day and we know that time is against us. Please help us continue to find a cure as well as get the proper care and medications she needs for her survival.
