MS medical bills and victim
$3,140 of $5,000 goal
I am now negative in my account, have no money for medical bills, medicine, or everyday necessities.
I went from being very active, to not being able to do anything almost overnight.
I am hoping there are some people out there who could help me out with anything. I can't afford anything, and with the holidays coming up, it makes things three times as hard to just get through the day.
I hate asking for help, but I am now out of options. I know I am hoping for a miracle, but this is the time for miracles right?
I am also trying to add a photo of my MRI that shows how bad my brain is. The lighter color shows just how much myelin is missing. The unpredictable disabling of the central nervous system disrupts flow of information from th brain to the body.
My body is fighting against itself.
I am hoping that one day soon I might be able to get back to being a LMT. But to do what I need for that, I need help. Any.
Please help. Thank you.
I am still excited to have the stencil transplant done, but it is just very hard to make it to that gate.
I spend 1 week in Chicago hospital for harvesting and more including Chemo,
Then the next step is the actual transplant and multiple doses of chemo.
I still need help!!!! I still have a ways to go to be able to have this done.
Please help with my only chance to get my life back??
I Thank everyone now in advance
I am very excited to have this done, but I do still need help.
Anything will help. Thank you!
A friend, who is a registered nurse, sent me the information. I did tons of research and have contacted the Hospital in Chicago where it is performed.
The results are AMAZING! Some of the patients are calling it a cure, but the Doctor won't, and I understand why.
This is a newer procedure (since 2003) so not many people know about it yet.
I found out I AM eligible and I am in the prime time to have it done.
I am waiting for disability to be approved, and then I am automatically enrolled in Medicare, which I found out will cover the transplant minus the $2500 Hospital fee, and non Hospital necessities.
I am very grateful for the help I have received, and this is my chance to get my life back! I still need help to make this dream come true.
I have been watching a video for the past month that was made in 2009 when Rania was here for a workshop. You and her were side by side and I must say Kristina you were just as awesome as Miss Rania. Tonight I dedicate the drum solo Rania taught us to you, Kristina. I hope I do you both honor. Be strong my friend. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Love you lady. Jenny
I have known Kristina for over 10 years...I can't believe this has happened to her. Not too long ago we were rehearsing and dancing on stage together, then a few weeks later she complained of partial facial paralysis and weakness. Then came the diagnosis for MS. Kristina went from working as a massage therapist and dance instructor to losing balance if she tried to walk across a room, literally overnight. As if this wasn't bad enough, she has to wait a whole year, unable to work, to find out if she qualifies for disability. Meanwhile, she has medical bills every month and no income. I hope this campaign is a huge success for Kristina, so she can make it through this difficult year. Love, Rania
