From my heart to yours, please read.

Meet Noella. She was your normal teenager hanging out with friends, giggling about boys, deciding what nail polish to wear and doing every day teenage activities.....until one day when she could not get out of bed.

After running from Dr.  to Dr., specialist to specialist, it was discovered that Noella had experienced a massive onset of a syndrom called POTS.

This beautiful, spirited 15 year old teenager is now confined to her home, unable to walk without assistance and requires 24/7 care.

What once was a normal happy teenage life has now turned into an isolated disabled and restrictive existence. 

I have been watching not only Noella's life implode, but her wonderful mother Janine, who is a dear dear friend of mine struggle to keep their lives together.

I recently saw Noella and my heart sunk.  I was stunned by her appearance and did everything I could to maintain composure.  She was almost unrecognizable due to the "moon-face and body" from the enormous amounts of steroids and other medications. 

I can no longer sit idly by and watch this young woman's life slip away.   Janine has been forced to leave her job and care for her daughter, unable to pay for in-home health care assistance.

THE SITUATION IS DIRE and they need help now!

Although they have been applying for assistance, there has been very little movement and they are now in financial crisis.

Noella needs IV medications administered on a daily basis, has continuous anaphylactic reactions, is on heavy doses of pain and nausea meds. She will not be able to continue with the medical costs if we do not get her some help.

The seriousness of Noella's illness is complex and now involves several Medical Professionals to oversee her.

The goal is to get Noella healthy, happy and whole and living a normal teenager life again and for her mom to get back to work. 

EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS!! If you can only do $10 that is a blessing....Please help and donate what you can....no amount is too small!  

PLEASE SHARE THIS CAMPAIGN with your social networks.  

I am enormously grateful for your support! 

Thank you!
