David has been battling with bollous for over a year now. Bullous pemphigoid occurs when your immune system attacks a thin layer of tissue below your outer layer of skin. The reason for this abnormal immune response is unknown. Treatment usually includes medications, such as prednisone, and other drugs that suppress the immune system. Bullous pemphigoid can be life-threatening, especially for older people who are already in poor health. He has trouble with work, sleeping, showering and your everyday life things. It started on his chest and has now went to his entire back, ears, legs, stomach, head and now his face. Its dangerously close to his eye. If it gets into his eyes he can go blind. If it gets in his throat he could possibly die. The doctor said it can last up to 5 years. If he makes it that long by how fast its spreading. We have a 7 month old son, his first child David the third. David works long hours and somtimes nights to support his family and his new son. The treatment to rid off bollous is $15,000. We ask for your help to win the battle against this. So David is no longer in pain and can finally play with his son and sleep again. Thank you.
