Erich was a normal, precocious four-year-old until she was diagnosed with Severe Aplastic Anemia, in addition to the bacterial infection Pseudomona. Please help us raise money for her treatment and show your support!
It all started when Erich stumbled for no apparent cause. After, she had difficulty standing and had to be assisted to walk. Then her platelet and blood count dropped critically low and Erich had to be rushed to the hospital.
After much testing, Erich was diagnosed with Severe Aplastic Anemia, a rare blood disorder where the body's bone marrow doesn't make enough new blood cells. Erich needs help with medical expenses including regular blood transfusions, medicines, hospital bills, and laboratory tests. At the moment, this little girl cannot sit up or stand up. Due to complications, she has been infected with the bacteria pseudomonas and it has eaten away at parts of her body.
To survive, Erich will need blood and bone marrow stem cell transplants or immuno-suppressant medicines. ANY amount you can generously give is very welcome. Erich has no health benefits from Mom's work. Mom was recently downsized at work and subsequently lost Erich's HMO.
Here are Erich's medical expenses so far:
Hospital Bill (1st month): $2,500
Immunosuppresive Medicine (per month): $1,200
Bone Marrow Transplant: $139,000
Other medicines: $100
Blood/Platelet Transfusions per bag: $34
To friends who know mother and daughter personally and to strangers who have the kindest of hearts, please help in giving Erich a chance to fight and survive her disease.
Thank you in advance!
From Friends of Erich <3
