UPDATE--- HI EVERYONE THIS IS JESSIE'S SISTER, ANGIE. I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A MOMENT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR THEIR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS. ITS A BEAUTIFUL THING TO WITNESS A COMMUNITY COMING TOGETHER TO SUPPORT SOMEONE IN NEED.
WE WILL CONTINUE WITH THE FUNDRAISER  UNTIL WE FULLY FUND HER TREATMENT.  WE APPRECIATE ALL OF YOUR PRAYERS AND LOVE. ALL OF YOU ARE NOW PART OF THIS FAMILY. MY PARENTS, JESSIE'S HUSBAND LEWIS AND HER WONDERFUL LITTLE BOY WOLFIE CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT. GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU❤️

Jessie's Story:

I am mother of a 5 year old.  A couple of days after he was born I experienced a trauma that left me paralyzed and unable to speak. (I am now able bodied and able to talk.)
The experience traumatized me and I was subsequently diagnosed with:
•PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)
•severe post partum depression
•panic disorder

I have been in treatment for 5 years.
I have complied with the doctors & therapists that have treated me. None of them have adequately addressed my specific issues. Their answers are just more medications and hospitalizations.
I've already been hospitalized twice.
All of this has occurred while my child was passing through his infancy, his toddlerhood- I am fighting to be well so that he doesn't remain stuck with a sick mom.
My current situation is this:
•I suffer panic attacks
•debilitating depression
•flashbacks of the trauma
•obesity as a direct result of the various medications I have been placed on

I had been given a space at a treatment center in California but for reasons that you can read about in previous updates, I will not be able to go.

My family and I now need to raise enough money for the following:
•to aggressively pursue and fundnew treatments such as EMDR and Neurofeedback; our health insurance does not cover these legitimate treatment options
•childcare for my son while I am in treatment

Many of you know that I have fought hard at every step of the way to get better. There were a few times when I was ready to end my life. By grace I was taken to hospital before that happened.

With proper, specialized treatment  under an experienced doctor, I feel hopeful that this pain will end. I am doing this for my son, for my husband, for my parents. The amount of suffering that they have gone through is too sad to describe.
My family and I are asking for your help now. A life of future hospitalizations, suffering and PTSD is no life at all. Please help us reach our goal. If you can help out by re-posting this on social media it would be so appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this. With Love, Jessie

Hello sweet ones...I wanted to share with Team Jessie, that she continues on her journey towards wellness. On a weekly basis she faithfully goes to both an EMDR therapy specialist & a specialist in Neurofeedback therapy. She also works on a daily basis on her shop. In my opinion this shop she created years ago has been her greatest form of therapy. It has provided her with a supportive community unlike any I have seen. She deserves it! Jessie's always lent a helping hand, fundraised, spoken a kind word and offered free books to others in need. Her kind heart is her greatest attribute. Her shop contributes to charities on a regular basis. We still want to reach the original goal of 10k since the current therapies Jessie is partaking in are not covered by insurance and cost well into the hundreds per session so please share this post and your prayers are so appreciated. Love, health and happiness to each of you and your loved ones. ❤️ Angie - Jessie's sister

Good morning everyone... I'd like to let you all know that my sister's hubby Lewis has found two therapists that specialize in treating patients with PTSD. These kind of specialty therapists do not accept insurance and the cost of a visit is very expensive. The fundraising continues in order to cover Jessie's upcoming medical costs. Jessie and Lewis and their beautiful little boy Wolfie are so grateful for all your love and support. I kindly ask that we all continue to share her story and continue to keep her in our prayers. ❤️ Thank you and much love to all of you!
