I have had the insufferable Lyme disease for 10 years now, which is half of my life because I am only 21 years old.
I have no memories of even being healthy because I was infected at such a young age.
I am raising money so I can go to Sponaugle Wellness Institute, which specializes in Lyme treatment. It is very expensive to go there, but has cured so many people with Chronic Lyme Disease.
I was first infected when I was 12 years old. It took 5 years later to be diagnosed and treated because doctors kept telling me that I was okay and there was nothing wrong with me. Finally I met a Lyme Literate Doctor who tested me properly and saw I had a full blown Lyme infection and Babesia infection.
I have gone through 1 year of oral antibiotics, 6 months of IV's, and 5 surgeries later before I even turned 18 years old. Now I am 21 years old and I am still sick and only getting worse. I am so young and I live like a 90 year old woman because of how debilitated I am.
My dream is to create a healing medical center that would take in chronically ill people for free. I want to help as many people as possible, but I need to be healed first. I want to be active, normal, and live a real life that many people take for granted.
If 34,500 people donate 1 dollar, I could finally gain my health back and fulfill my dream to help others.
