Help for Destany
Organized by: Michelle Hall
This adorable 4 year old girl is my princess Destany. She is a sweet, smart, fun loving energetic child. At least she used to be. About 2 years ago I noticed that something was not right. She would go through episodes where she had no energy, get very sick, and say that she hurt to move. I started telling her Dr what was going on and was told i was being a paranoid mom. I went through this for almost two years until i called a new pediatrician in my town to make an appointment for her. I explained to the Dr what had been going on with her and begged him to just see her. The moment he laid eyes on her he immediately agreed that she was very ill and he was going to find out why. At 26lbs, numerous hospital and doctor visits, and 6 months later we finally got the answer. My child has lupus. She will ALWAYS be sick. The doctors want me to take her to a specialist to see what treatment options we have. I am indeed of the money for help with the medical cost that my insurance will not cover and travel and lodging experience while we are there. I am a hard working mother of 4, but this is more than I can afford. Please help. Thank you.
