My daughter Layan (15 years old), had an intense fever last year and she was rushed to the hospital. She was nauseous and unable to move and whenever she stands she falls. She had to stay in the hospital for at almost one month. She underwent many blood tests. Later she was moved to another hospital in another city.
Later her health went even worse, she had many absence seizures along with abnormal limb movements. Because of this, she was also subjected to bullying at school. She couldn't bare it and became suicidal. She eventually had to study at home.
After a lumbar puncture procedure, MRI and many other blood tests she was found to have the Borrelia bacteria in her body. She diagnosed too late with Lyme disease and it was already spread.
She complains from multiple symptoms that impair her physically and psychologically. It's because the bacteria is damaging her nervous system. She lacks the ability to go to the toilet. She takes care of herself and unable to have a shower by herself. She has troubles living like kids at her age and not be able to go to school. Every daily task takes longer to be accomplished because of absence seizure that makes her standing idle. This puts her at risk for injuring herself.
The health insurance doesn't cover her treatment. Most clinics are expensive and I cannot afford them. I need to start the treatment for my daughter before her condition deteriorates even more. I have put this funding goal because her condition needs more extensive treatments (such as care assistance and treatment costs) because it's late-stage Lyme disease.
So please, I want to save my daughter from this disease and make her life normal again. Anything you can give will help with her battle against Lyme disease.
Thank you, you generous, lovely people,
