My name is Deidre Lewis, and I am a twenty-seven (27) year old, self-trained National Bikini Fitness athlete. I am a non-professional athlete engaging in the sport of bodybuilding for the past six (6) years. However, my athletic interest became known since I was a toddler competing in various school- based sporting competitions. Throughout my lifetime, I have received over one hundred (100) sport/fitness accolades from all my efforts. I love being active; it gives me great joy. Most critical to me throughout this journey is that the sport of BodyBuilding has not only graced me with many awards but it has also given me purpose. I have been subject to drug testing as a rule by my local anti-doping organization JADCO as well.

On the 9th of December 2020 I received a letter via email from JADCO notifying me that there was an Adverse Analytical Finding for the substance Zeranol in my system. Zeranol is a semi-synthetic non-steroidal growth promoter, whose misuse in sports is prohibited at all times. Inadvertent doping with this drug can not only occur due to an illegal administration to meat-producing animals, but also due to the natural presence of structurally related mycotoxins in grains: Certain fungi species colonizing in wheat, maize, barley, and oats produce zearalenone, α-, and β-zearalenol, which can be enzymatically converted to zeranol after the consumption of contaminated cereals. Basically, this substance can only come from contaminated food that was injected with hormones, but I can not tell where it came from. I was unable to explain what I had eaten that had the substance so a period of ineligibility was imposed for 2 years.

I had to be represented by an attorney and an expert, which has left me with a bill of over $600k Jamaican Dollars. I am the sole breadwinner for myself and cannot afford to cover these outstanding legal bills with the job that I currently have. I am asking for your help to cover those legal bills that I have not yet been able to pay.

A different attorney is currently assisting to exonerate my name pro bono, but I will still have to cover my outstanding legal fees from the first hearing. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
