Saving Arianna.
Arianna is a 16 year old sister, daughter, friend, family member, student, and volleyball player. She is also a young girl suffering from Anorexia Nervosa. This disease is very serious and has progressed aggressively and has put Arianna in very poor health and has become life- threatening . Due to how this illness works she kept the severity of it from her friends and family. As Arianna's sister, I have only seen a glimpse of how this disease has taken over her life which was once filled with joy, excitement, and love for life but now her illness prevents her from living the life she once had.

My family has insurance, but the insurance does not cover all the costs of the intensive treatment Arianna will need to treat this disease. Arianna has been back and forth from hospitals to outpatient treatment facilities. The doctors and medical professionals feel as though she must have 24 hour care because of the severity of her illness. Unfortunately, they do not offer this kind of care in Ohio, so she will have to be moved out of state to receive the attention she needs. Without this treatment, my sister will not be able to live without serious complications and return to the healthy, confident, smart, young girl again.

My sister means the world to me and so many others, we cannot imagine a life without her beautiful soul. The cost of the treatment is more than my immediate family can cover up front and I am asking for your support to help save Arianna and bring her home healthy, because she has such a beautiful long life ahead. This devastating disease has taken away my sister’s lively and care-free spirit, and I hope that with everyone’s help she can recover. 

Please help my little sister!

Update:
Arianna is receiving the treatment she needs at one the best centers in the country. My Dad (Ray) and mother (Bonnie) have needed to visit Arianna every week for therapies in Baltimore. Thank you all for your prayers, thoughts, love and support. She will need to be in Baltimore for many more weeks ahead.
Please continue to help my sister!
