Signal boost. Every dollar helps.
Alright, I have a huge favor to ask of everyone.
My cousin, Kira, is 12 years old. She recently came home from school and felt tingling and numbness in her legs. Her mother went to take her to the hospital, but she could not stand up; she was paralyzed. My aunt quickly picked her up and rushed her to the emergency room. Three spinal taps later, they have found out that she has Guillain-Barre syndrome. This is an autoimmune disorder that is attacking her nerves. There is no cure for this at all, and she is going to have to go through physical therapy for the next six months to be able to walk again. Treatment will help, but there is no guarantee she will ever be herself again.
My aunt is a very, very strong woman, but she is also the breadwinner in the house. She cannot work while her daughter is in the hospital, and they recently were nearly homeless. She also has two other children at home. If you can help in any way, please do. They are scared that they are going to lose their home and not be able to pay for Kira’s physical therapy.
Here’s more information on Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
